Monthly Dividend Income – July 2017

Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, DIP, & RothI enjoy sharing them as these passive dividend income provides me great inspiration and encouragement to keep chugging along and hopefully to the readers.

I crossed 4 digit mark in total passive dividend income: $1267.03 to be precise. It was little over June month but out of park as compared to last July. That’s awesome. It only shows the power of Dividend Income engine. I’m that much closer to being  Financially Independent (FI) and living a life that I want to live and enjoy my freedom.

How did your Dividend Income come along in month of May?

Recent Buy – CVA, OHI

I’m looking for companies that are fairly valued, have a decent dividend yield(3% to 6%) and have a fairly long history of paying dividends consistently for 10 years or more. However, there could be some cases for exceptionally good company or a strategic buy for a very long term.

1) Covanta Holding Corp. (CVA)

Covanta is involved in the conversion of  waste material to energy and renewable energy production businesses, more like utilities style. CVA is currently fairly valued, almost 20% lower than 52 weeks high of $17.16 and juicy dividend of almost 7%.

I added 25 positions in CVA at $14.10 on 5/05 to my existing 50 positions. It’ll add $25.00 of passive income on an annual basis, if there are no dividend cuts 🙂

2) Omega Heathcare Investors, Inc. (OHI)

Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) have been fluctuating due to concerns about rate hikes in the near term, likely two more this year, thereby driving their borrowing costs and margins. I consider it a risky buy but fairly valued. I added 25 positions in OHI on 5/19 at $32.92. It’ll add $63.00 in passive income on an annual basis that I do not need to work for.

Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned securities.
