    • A-G,
      Yes, the REITs are interesting in the current market indeed. Realty Income’s dividend increase is welcome for sure. The increase is small – as they do multiple increases over the year. Each quarter, the increase has been 0.17% this year.

  1. Another dividend increase, awesome! I have shares of O and they’ve been good to me thus far. I’ve been too much on the hunt for new companies that I sometimes forget to read up on the companies I’ve already invested in, so thanks.

    • I think thats pretty common, HMB. On the hunt for new companies, we forget about the ones we already own. Sometimes theres good value in the holdings of your portfolio and good to simply add to the position instead of looking elsewhere.

      Enjoy the dividend increase, fellow shareholder

      • Good point and something I’ve been thinking about recently. My portfolio has grown and is approaching a really nice mix. So I’ve been thinking about going back and adding to my current positions, especially with this dip in the market. Thanks for the feedback.

  2. I’ve been looking into O — its an interesting stock with a solid history of dividend increases. Also gotta love their mantra: The Monthly Dividend Company.
