We used to joke at Fund Alarm that the one who missed a distribution from a Fund--- which would explain a steep drop in share price--- gets to buy everyone else donuts.
In spite of such a challenging year, my funds' estimates are giving me quite a bit of assurance and satisfaction, with an eye on December. Can't believe where the time goes. Thanksgiving, this week, already. Two of my single-stocks pay in November, shortly. This is what's SUPPOSED to happen. Wow. No crazy emergencies--- yet--- for the portfolio. Shall I hold my breath?
