    It doesn’t seem like much of an increase, but O tends to raise every quarter. The total dividends paid in 2017 were 5% higher than in 2016. 2018 is already almost 3% higher than 2017 with a couple more raises (probably) still to come. I just keep adding shares and reinvesting the dividends and am very happy with O.
