Dividend Increase Effect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 36.49 shares of Realty Income in the More Dividends portfolio. With this 0.2% increase it will add an additional $0.22 to my projected annual dividend income and this doesn’t even take into account the compounding factor!
They are not called The Monthly Dividend Company for no reason. They have consistently paid me dividends since I first bought into this position. I have chosen to reinvest all of the dividends so this position has steadily gotten larger.
Unfortunately, this is the only way to grow this position right now because the share price is much greater than my cost basis. Other than that I would love to own more shares of Realty Income. I actually long for the day when I can grow this position.
Until then though I will just sit back and let the position work for me!!!
Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉
Do you currently hold any stock in Realty Income? What do you think of this dividend increase? Just let me know in the comments.
As always I look forward to reading all of your comments and questions, until then….. happy investing!
