  1. Cheers to the raise! We own AT&T in two separate portfolios so we have two great reasons to raise a glass to the 2.1% raise. :) Nothing better than getting a raise with no effort at all, even better when it comes from a high yielder like AT&T.

    Cheers to receiving more raises this coming year! AFFJ
