Dividend Increase – Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (OHI)


Yesterday, 16 January Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $ 0.65 to $ 0.66 per share that’s payable February 15, 2018 to holders of record January 31, 2018. This represents a 1.54% increase to regular quarterly dividends. Maybe this increase appears to be small, but it is worth remembering that, Omega Healthcare Investors prefers to raise the dividend four times a year. The February payment in 2017 was $ 0.62 so 2018's payout represents an 6.45% increase year over year. Omega Healthcare Investors has now increased dividends for 22 consecutive quarters. With current price $ 26.11 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 10.11%. 

Since I own 185 shares this will increase my yearly net dividends by $ 5.51.

That increase rises my YOC to 7.49

Review of the Year 2017, Goals for the year 2018

The year 2017 is behind us, so it's time to see how I reached my goals, and how my portfolio developed during the year. I will also set my dividend income goal for the 2018.

I did 67 transactions during the year, 61 purchases and six sales, I got dividends from 63 companies and distributions from two ETFs. My portfolio now includes 65 companies and two ETFs that pay dividends. Comparing to 2016: 27 transactions, 22 purchases and five sales, got dividends from 55 companies and from two ETFs. About a year ago I made a plan to make a weekly purchase and in this way to grow my portfolio. In this objective, I almost succeeded because there were a few weeks before the end of the year without significant purchases. During the year I added ten new companies in my portfolio, which in the future will hopefully pay me growing dividends. I do not have any particular objective to increase the number of companies this year, but I keep my eyes open, and if the market is favorable, I might add my portfolio diversification. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied that I added more companies to my portfolio and increased diversification during the last year.
