There. GILD and ORI purchases still added to my June dividend total, while the rest should secure good growth in July. KMB was clearly the biggest investment at this time. I just recently opened position in the company, and I intend to make it one of my heavier positions. MDT's yield has has sunken a bit lower than I would like, but I hope to hear about dividend raise during June. At the other end WPC purchase lifts the average yield here.

Thanks for reading. My Portfolio page has been updated to reflect these trades.
