Dividend Increase Streak Years: 4
DGR 3-yr: 10,9%
P/E trailing 12-month: 10,9
I don't know about you, but to me Royal Bank doesn't look expensive. This is great because I'm only in the beginning of accumulation with this stock. I was able to lower my cost basis and diversify towards Canada, so I got to be pleased about that. This purchase adds C$2.37 on quarterly and C$9.48 on annual basis to my dividend income.
Buy in USD - Cisco Systems Inc (CSCO)
Trade Price: 26.14
Sector: Technology - Networking & Communication Devices
Payout Ratio: 46%
Dividend Increase Streak Years: 5
DGR 3-yr: 60,2%
P/E trailing 12-month: 15,6
My last purchase report was about Cisco, so this is a little bit unexpected. But when last month was coming to an end, my commissions were well below $10 monthly minimum and I had just something like $30 dollars on my account. Plus ex-dividend date was just around corner, I decided to take one more bite of CSCO. This purchase adds $0.21 on quarterly and $0.84 on annual basis to my dividend income.
Buy in USD - Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI)
Trade Price: 35.15
Sector: REIT - Healthcare facilities
Payout Ratio: 77% of FFO
DGR 3 YR: 9,2%
I guess this is one of the most bought stocks among DGI people in the year of 2015. I have also been buying OHI in several small batches. Yield, growth, valuation. All this remains too attractive to resist. I missed the best bargain prices, again, but still I was able to average down a tad. This purchase adds $3.30 on quarterly and $13.20 on annual basis to my dividend income. And perhaps these numbers will correct upwards very soon when the company declares next dividend!?
Buy in USD - Unilever NV (UN)
Sector: Consumer Staples - Personal Products
Payout Ratio: 69%
Dividend Increase Streak Years: 0
DGR 3-yr: 0
P/E trailing 12-month: 19,3
I recently discovered Unilever branded mustard at the local shop, and of course I made a purchase immediately:) I just love to see the U-brand in various products at my home. Wish I bought more the stock when it visited below $40. Now the price seems to run away again. I'm looking to add at least a couple shares again in November. UN doesn't appear on David Fish's Dividend Champions list since dividends are determined in euros and then converted to dollars for shares in NYSE. But on Euro Dividend all-stars list Unilever has 14 year streak of increasing dividends. This purchase adds $0.66 on quarterly and $2.63 on annual basis to my dividend income.
