Recent Buy - HCP Inc. (HCP)

29th April 2015 I Bought 45 shares of HCP at $41.07 per share plus commission.



HCP, Inc. is an independent hybrid real estate investment trust. The fund invests in real estate markets of the United States. It primarily invests in properties serving the healthcare industry including sectors of healthcare such as senior housing, life science, medical office, hospital and skilled nursing. The fund also invests in mezzanine loans and other debt instruments. It engages in acquisition, development, leasing, selling and managing of healthcare real estate and provides mortgage and other financing to healthcare providers. The fund benchmarks the performance of its portfolio against the S&P 500 Index, Berkshire Hathaway Index, and MSCI REIT Index. HCP, Inc. was formed in 1985 and is based in Irvine, California with additional office in Nashville and San Francisco.

HCP is a Dividend Champions with an 30 year streak of dividend increases. Dividend growth rates for 1, 3, 5 and 10 years are 3.8, 4.3, 3.4 and 2.7. (DividendChampions.xls) HCP Inc. now pays dividends of $0.565 per share normally in February, May, August and November.

If you are interested, you can read good analysis of the HCP here:


My Dividend Pipeline increased the HCP's share of his portfolio at the same day as I made my first purchase of it. 


Some ratings for HCP:

    Yahoo:  Mean Recommendation 3.1, 1y Target Est $43.96
    Reuters: Mean Rating 3.00

At today's exchange rate, this purchase 45 shares of HCP will increase €67.35 ($75.77) of my expected annual net dividend income and will increase my portfolio's projected annual net dividend income to €8990.00. With purchase price $41.07 plus commission ($5.00) my starting yield on cost is 5.49%.

    2. HCP is a nice REIT. A long streak of dividend increases is rare for REITs.

      Thanks for including my analysis!

  2. Onnittelut ostoksesta. Hauska huomata, että muutkin DGI:t ovat samoilla suunnilla operoimassa kuin mitä itse olen pohtinut. Itsellä OHI ja HCP tarkkailussa.

    Hauskaa Vappua!

      Korot kun nousee, REITit laskee, mielestäni tarjoaa ostopaikan, vaikkakin todennäköisesti tulevat laskemaan vielä enemmmän. Otin kuitenkin pienen siivun jo nyt tarkoituksena lisätä myöhemmin.

      Kiitos, samoin sinulle,

  3. Nice buy DH!!

    HCP is one of the companies which I have on my radar, but now I'm trying to add some UK companies to my porfolio.

    What do you think about National Grid or Vodafone? Do you like this companies for dividend investing?

    Best regards,
    Divindependencia.

  7. Nice buy DH...you got in a great price. We've have our eye on HCP too and might just pull the trigger soon. We don't currently own any shares but would certainly love to be a fellow shareholder. :) AFFJ

  8. I love the buys here, I recently added HCP in my existing position and just recently OHI, seems like we are buying same stocks lately with quality health care REIT that complement each other.

      It's always more confidence when others are involved, if the ship begins to sink! :)
