I figured you all would see this coming considering one of my last posts and involved performing a dividend stock analysis over one of the most population REITs in the dividend investing community and I recently featured the company on my last watch list. But this week, I took some capital off the sidelines and put it back into the market as stock prices continue to tumble. Time to share with you the newest addition to my portfolio, Realty Income (O)!
If you want to talk about how fast time flies, here is a perfect example. I was prepared to re-visit a dividend stock analysis that I thought I performed over Realty Income (“O”) a couple of quarters ago. When I looked at the date on the original analysis…it was November 2015. I cannot believe 12 months have flown by that quickly…where has time gone? Even though I have reviewed the company in the past, I thought it would be a good idea to update the stock analysis I performed considering the recent pullback in price, the fact that they were one of the four stocks on my October Watch List, and the company’s recent earnings release. A lot can change over 12 months, I think we can all attest to that in some capacity. So let’s re-run Realty Income through our stock screener.
My last two articles have been reviewing my past performance, checking in on my goals through the end of September and reviewing my September dividend income. Both of the articles were showing that my portfolio and dividend income are trending in the right direction. With three months to spare, I’m looking to keep that momentum going. So I took some time tonight to prepare my October stock watch list and see if I can pinpoint a few stocks to keep a close eye on over the next several weeks.
We’ve closed the chapter on yet another month of 2016. Time moves so fast…it is unreal. It seems like just yesterday I was typing up my July dividend income summary and feeling excited for what was in store for me in August (probably because we went on our honeymoon!). I received my last dividend of the month a few days ago, so it is finally time to once again share my results and track my progress as I race towards completing my 2016 goals. With that being said, here it is, my August Dividend Income Summary!
I have a little capital to invest over the next few weeks and I am looking to make a splash with my next purchase. It has been a few weeks since I purchased my last stock and I am starting to get the itch to invest again. I still have just under $200 to go to achieve my goal of reaching $2,750 in projected dividend income by the end of the year, so I want my next purchase to count. Don’t worry everyone, I’m not chasing yield, I’ve learned that lesson the hard way. My focus is shifting to a company that I am shocked is not in my portfolio by now and I may be the only investor in the dividend growth investing community to not own this stock. It is time to run Realty Income through the Dividend Diplomats’ Stock Screener.
6 months have passed! It’s now a quarter end as well, giving us another homerun of a month for Dividend Income. Also, as summer just turned the page to begin, let’s see if brighter sun and warmer weather also aligned with a blockbuster of a month for dividend income!
As time passes, so does a month of collecting dividend income. Five wild months are already in the books and the sun is shining here in Cleveland. Talk about a rarity these days. As spring is upon us, I think, it’s time to see what the 5th month of dividend income was able to bring. Now to the results
