Dividend Increase Affect On More Dividends
I am currently holding 27.894 shares of Realty Income in the More Dividends portfolio. With this 0.2% increase it will add an additional $0.17 to my projected annual dividend income and this doesn’t even take into account the compounding factor!
Realty Income is a great company. I have been holding these shares for several years now. I would love to be able to add to this position but it would take a huge drop before the share price reaches my cost basis. Until then, I will continue to hold this position and let the compounds to continue to grow!
Regardless of how large or small, I love all dividend increases. That is how we end up with More Dividends 😉
