Yesterday HCP Inc. announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $0.565 to $0.575 per share that’s payable February 23, 2016 to holders of record February 8, 2016. This represents a 1.77% increase to regular quarterly dividends and this is the 31st consecutive year that HCP has increased its dividend per share. With current price $35.00 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 6.57%. 

Since I own 100 shares this will increase my yearly net dividends by $2.98.

That increase rises my YOC to 5.83%

Income and Expenses, Savings Rate for Q4 and for the year 2015



A year has once again changed, and January is already almost halfway. Year 2015 was very lucrative for me, including a few nice surprises in the form of additional dividends as well as a few disappointments in the form of dividend cuts. So now is the time to look at how I managed during the fourth quarter, and how my journey towards financial independence is progressing. As I mentioned in my first income / expenditure report, I will make a summary on a quarterly basis, because my months in the case of income are very different. This will give me a better view of the overall situation and hopefully will inspire some of my blog readers.

Review of the Year 2015, Goals for the year 2016



The year 2015 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 goals for the 2016.

I did 34 transactions during the year, 30 purchases and four sales, I got dividends from 46 companies and distributions from two ETFs. My portfolio now includes 44 companies and two ETFs that pay dividends. Comparing to 2014: 21 transactions, 19 purchases and two sales, got dividends from 33 companies and from two ETFs. About a year ago I set my target to increase the number of dividend-paying companies, about 40, which I achieved over the last year. This year the intention is to focus mainly on raising the proportion of low-weight companies in my portfolio, it is possible that for some companies, I will say good-bye, and of course if the opportunity comes, a few new acquaintances always fit. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied that I was able to increase the number of companies in my portfolio and increased diversification during the last year.
