Dividends and earnings announcements
Here is the recent news on earnings and dividends:
- Annaly Series D went ex-dividend on May 30 and pays out almost $0.48 per share on June 30.
- Brookfield went ex-dividend on May 29 and pays outs $0.43 per share on June 28.
- Ryman Hospitality Properties, Inc. (REIT) (NYSE:RHP) went ex-dividend on June 26 and pays outs $0.50 per share on July 14.
- Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE:PM) went ex-dividend on June 25 and pays outs $0.85 per share on July 11.
All that, of course, means more money coming into our pockets.
It’s fun to sit back and get paid, and with the market volatility, we might have a good chance to reinvest those dividends at good prices. Europe continues to be an absolute mess, and continued bad news will probably have stocks plunging again. If they do, I’ll be inclined to pick more shares up.
Foolish bottom line
I’ve been a fan of big dividends for a while, and I think this portfolio will outperform the market over time through the power of dividends. As I promised in the original article, I’ll continue to track and report on the portfolio’s progress, including news on these companies.
