Recent buy: Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS)

Yesterday I made a first purchase of this month, buying a couple of shares of Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS).
As we've been having some extra unexpected expenses the amount of pocket money we have has shrunk a bit. So our first priority, as well as making extra mortgage payments, is filling our coffers again.
Having said that, we were able to make this small purchase, partly from our received dividends ans a little bit of new cash.

We bought 4 shares of BNS at a price of $55.30 a piece. With transaction fees the cost basis of this purchase was €201.67. As BNS pays about $2.28 a year in dividend it yields 4%.

My expected dividend after taxes is raised a bit to about €402 a year. This is lower than I reported in earlier posts. Because the dollar is taking a hit compared to the Euro, my expected dividend income has dropped a couple of percents recently.

BNS is a new position for me. You can see a dividend stock analysis of this company by roadmap2retire here.

Recent buy: WSR

Today I my expanded on my position in Whitesone REIT (WSR). WSR attracted new capital for the purchase of two new properties. The share price dropped about 9% premarket.

I bought another 18 shares for $12.94 a share. Including transaction fees the total costs of this purchase were €217.12 or €12.06 per share. With the annual dividend of €1.06 this purchase yields 8.8%.
My expected annual dividend is raised by about 16 euros after taxes, bringing the total just above €400 after taxes.

I now own 73 shares of WSR and this will provide me with a monthly dividend income of €5.50 after taxes.
With this purchase my cost base drops from €13.21 to €12.92 per share. YOC will be 8.24%.

Dividend raise OHI

This is the second post about Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) in two days. Yesterday I reported buying 10 shares of the company and yesterday evening I was rewarded with the announcement of a dividend raise by OHI.

The quarterly dividend is raised from $0.62 to $0.63. This is an increase of 1.6%. Owning 40 shares of OHI my expected annual dividend income will rise by $1.60 which is not that much. Total expected annual dividend income from OHI will be $100,80 pre taxes and €83.44 after taxes.

While OHI raises it's dividend every quarter, I should really look at how much the dividend has raised in a year. Next dividend is 8.6% higher than last year's dividend. That is actually a very nice yearly increase.

OHI will yield 7.4% at the current share price and my YOC will be just above 8%.

Recent buy: OHI

Today I expanded my position in OHI. I bought another 10 shares for $34.24 per share. Including transaction fees of €0.54, the total costs were €323.03 or €32.30

I already owned 30 shares at a cost basis €31.03 per share, so my cost basis has risen somewhat to €31.34.

Last quarter OHI paid a dividend of $0.62 and is known to raise it's dividend every quarter. But at this dividend the yield on cost of this purchase is 7.6% and 7.9% on all my shares. This purchase will raise my expected yearly dividend income by $26.20 before taxes.

After taxes my annual expected dividend income is increased to €385.

March 17: Dividend income

We're already a few days into April so it is long due to report on my dividend income of March. March was a great month, it really was...

We received an alltime high amount of dividend, €51.60 after taxes from 4 different companies:

  • Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA): 1 share DRIP + €6.19 cash = €30.80
  • Whitestone REIT (WSR): €3.79
  • Target (TGT): €4.79
  • Unilever NV (UNA): €12.24

This is the highest amount yet, even topping last December when we received dividend from not just these companies but also Coca-Cola. The DRIP of 1 RDSA share will increase my expected net dividend income with approximately €1,50.

Last mpnth's dividend is a 577% increase YoY.

Our dividend income page and the portfolio page are updated with the new income and holding...

How was your dividend income last month?
