The list for May remains pretty much the same with great buys.  I bumped my yield filter down to 2.8% to account for some companies who may cross the 3% yield mark on a good dip.  I wanted to make sure they were on my watchlist so I could monitor them easily.

The newcomer to the list is Lazard Limited (LAZ).  They are a financial advisory and asset management company with over 2700 employees.  The company started back in 1848 and has grown revenue to 2.46B.  The ex-dividend date was 5/4 so I missed that boat.  With that said I would have to catch it on a good day (market/LAZ down) to make up for that lost personal revenue.  The book value of 9.40 is a bit high for my liking but that is way under the Financial Sector average of 20.24.

Happy investing,

Dividend Family Guy
