03-Oct-2016 DividendLab Newsletter

By Todd Johnson on 3-Oct-2016 6:24 am (7 months ago)Retirement Newsletter
Good morning, Initial public offerings (IPO) are the popular investment at this time. Quite a few names are rapidly moving up in price. An example is Nutanix, Inc. (NTNX).

Cintas provides necessary, mundane products such as uniforms for the working class. ... (more)

26-Sep-2016 DividendLab Newsletter

By Todd Johnson on 26-Sep-2016 7:39 am (7 months ago)Retirement Newsletter
