Dividend Increase Effect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 35.323 shares of Realty Income in the More Dividends portfolio. With this 0.2% increase it will add an additional $0.21 to my projected annual dividend income and this doesn’t even take into account the compounding factor!
It is always great to receive dividend increases even if they are small. Realty Income tends to make small increases numerous times throughout the year.
The company is solid with rent collection rates back up since the beginning of the pandemic.
I will continue to hold this position and allow the dividends to keep compounding.
Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉

As always I look forward to reading all of your comments and questions, until then….. happy investing!
