Investment: O - Realty Income Corp

Had a busy weekend manning a booth at a local festival for and spending time with family I didnt do my blog entry for the video...

EDIT: At the time this blog entry was posted I had a Youtube video here. That has been removed but I want the rest of my content to be remain. Nothing hidden no past mistakes ignored. All out in the open.

I've been invested with O for several years now and want to share some insight on that. The years where there was no growth in the dividend was rough to get through. Other companies were growing while O's dividend was lagging. Ok technically it grew but when it goes from $0.1445625 a month to $0.144875 its not really a raise its a gimmick to keep their streak.

Normally that is a concern for me but in O's case in handling the debt its understandable and it was reasons for protecting the investor (paying off debt before a credit liquidity crisis) and not something stupid like management messed up. My patience and faith is starting to be rewarded.

That is something that every investor will need to do. When do you bail out of a stock and sell and under what conditions. If we sell on every mistake made we wouldn't have any companies left.

  1. Hello Pulling Myself Up !

    I was wondering what's your view on the current US debt situation? These debt negotiations havent been fruitful up to now and have caused some uncertainties in the markets...

  2. I actually have a video coming out here this morning about that very topic.

  3. In fairness I didnt really answer your question in the video. Just my moves so I will answer it here. If I had to guess I think the government will raise it at the last possible moment, there might be a temporary move in the bond markets and possibly gold but nothing long term.

    Please note that is not a prediction. I am not acting upon that guess because that is all it is. I'm waiting to see what happens. If the parties start talking more negatively about each other and nobody is even negotiating that would probably make me act. If they just continue their political verbal sparring like they always do I probably will sit out and not do anything.
