Recent buy – Realty Income

New addition to my Vrijheid Fonds.

Yesterday I made my first buy in 2018 week for my Vrijheid Fonds.

As I already wrote before, I have a few stocks in my Vrijheid Fonds, which I think are always safe to buy. In the long run they are always value for your money in my opinion. One of these stocks is Realty Income (O).

I did a quick scan of the company and on the basis of this information/research I think Realty Income is a great stock to have for the long run.




Yesterday I bought 35 shares of O at $55.16 per share (incl. fees). My Vrijheid Fonds consist of 120 shares of O after this buy.

With this buy I added a little bit more than €58 (after taxes) of dividend to my Vrijheid Fonds for this year.

The projected dividend income for 2018 for my Vrijheid Fonds is €3,325.

Again a small step in my journey. And one-step closer to my goal.

Has anyone else invested in this company recently? Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

      I don’t know yet. It depends on the diversification of my Vrijheid Fonds. At this moment I have enough Realty Income for now. But I don’t know if I can resist a bargain 😁

    I recently sold my position in O, brick and mortar shops are suffering from internet sales.
    I own some shops myself and everyone is suffering, no matter what they sell…in the states they are closing shops by the thousands even shoppingmalls..
    .everybody says O has a good mix of tenants, I have my doubts…good luck, no one knows for sure.

      Hello Luc,

      Thanks for stopping by. I agree that more and more is being sold and bought on the internet. And yes Real estate companies, like Realty Income, will have to deal with this. In my opinion Realty Income has a good mix of tenants, with good lease contracts. But that is not enough, they also have to deal with new and changing circumstances. The future will tell if O will do this successfully.
      Therefore I keep close watch on all my positions every quarter.

      I hope your shops will do well and you will prosper!

    O has been on a downward trend since July 2016. Yield and Beta is good. P/E is around 43. Have you looked at Vanguard REIT ETF (VNQ)? Invests in stocks issued by real estate investment trusts (REITs), companies that purchase office buildings, hotels, and other real property. Has a yield of 4.24%.

    O is still one of my favorite stocks in my portfolio and I love the monthly dividends it pays. As for me, I dollar cost average into Realty Income, so, I basically add to my portfolio every month, to the tune of at least one share per month. Good luck with the purchase PD.

    Nice buy. Glad to see you take advantage of this opportunity as well. Should add some nice monthly dividend income for you. Seems to be the popular stock within the community this week.
