I have been a little MIA the past couple of weeks but this summer has been extremely busy. Wedding season continues to be in full swing, lounging by the pool, playing golf (I know, not very frugal), working my butt off and overall just trying to enjoy life, has taken priority over the blog... Sorry!
I'm hoping to get back to writing a little bit more frequently but thank you all for being patient. Now to the good stuff...
On June 24th, we bought 33 shares of WPC at $61.45. This purchase adds $125.92 to our annual dividends based on a .9540 quarterly dividend. I went over some of WPC's business more in depth in this post a while back when I made the first purchase. At the time, the REIT's were still falling so we decided to buy some more of this great company. Hopefully they continue to grow just as rapidly in the next few years as they have in the past few years.
On July 17th, we bought 56 shares of OHI at $35.74. This purchase adds $123.20 to our annual dividends based on a .55 quarterly dividend. I went over OHI in more depth on this post a while back so feel free to check that out if you want more info. OHI has fallen over 20% from its 52 week high and another 10+% from our last purchase at $40. OHI could be in a great position in the future with regards to the baby boomers getting older and the need for more skilled nursing facilities. Hopefully there growth continues to be stellar and they dividend keeps increasing every quarter!
So thats it, These two purchases have added $249.12 to our annual dividends. Not too shabby. Now if we could only pick a stock like AMZN, NFLX to really accelerate our portfolio! Visa is helping out tonight/tomorrow and UNP keeps falling to more attractive levels.
Overall, I think UNP, MMM, DNKN, DPS could warrant initial purchases after their recent drops due to earnings. We should really just buy UA and let it ride... It continues to be in exponential growth mode and I would not be surprised if it becomes the next NKE.
Anyways, what do you think of the purchases? What are you all looking to buy next?
