The dividend is payable on April 6, 2010 to shareholders of record as of March 19, 2010.
April is the 4th month of the year.I think we will get our dividends for the rest of the year.
But you're right we can't count on anything.That's why we diversify our stock holdings .Don't put all your money in any one stock or sector.Just say you had $35,000 to invest.Then you could buy $5,000 worth of 7 different stocks, in 7 different sectors.
EPD, oil /gas ARLP, coal NRGY, utility T, telephone BMY, health care KFT, consumer goods UVE, Insurance /financial
