Trading News:
Eight stocks have increased in value and two have decreased, so the overall climate is favourable.
Dividend income should increase next month and the outlook is for an increased dividend level.

Trading Alerts:
The month was a short month and dividends were not paid from four main investments:
AATP; T2AHL; Zero.; and a new investment LVM
Dividends were not received from Zero. for the fourth month and this is an area of concern although the CEO has assured us that dividends will resume shortly.
