Recent Buy: 10/31/17
Today, I purchased an additional 21 shares of OHI (Omega Healthcare Investors) for $28.585/share or $605.24 in total capital. I had 37 shares of OHI prior to this purchase in my Traditional IRA, bringing my total shares to 58. This increases my forward dividends by $54.60/year.
For Q3 of 2017, OHI underperformed what was expected by Wall St. consensus. The company missed their expected revenue figure by $44.4 million, despite being up 4.4% since the same time last year. These troubles stem from tenant, Orianna Health Systems is essentially behind on their rent. Trouble is, with the types of properties that OHI operates, you can’t simply close down and kick out current tenants because a large majority of them are the elderly with longterm care needs.
The missed earnings caused a pretty big sell off after-hours on the 30th, and today it looks like it’s recovered some of it’s losses. It’s a great dividend player that just went on sale. Time to pick up some more with a little bit of capital.
It will be interesting to see what the next dividend increase looks like, although management did say on their earnings call that they don’t expect much change.
Invest on! It looks like another dividend growth investor, My Dividend Pipeline, also took advantage today, with a lot more capital, too! Way to go!
Total Forward Dividends: $822.45
