Money market yields keep rising.  Cash isn't something that we often consider when it comes to dividends. It's just cash! It's money that is on it's way to being invested in stocks or bonds.

Time in the Market Dividend Review – July 2018 – It’s Raining Hundred Dollars Bills

It's July and it's raining hundred dollar bills. July was the last bastion of hold outs against the deluge of $100 months.
