Income and Expenses, Savings Rate for Q3 2017

The third quarter has already passed and it is time to look at how it went and how I managed in my saving goals and how my journey towards financial independence is progressing. Since this is the third year when I keep a stricter control of my spending, I also made a comparison with last year's results. As I mentioned in my first income / expenditure report, I will make a summary on a quarterly basis, because my months in the case of income are very different. This will give me a better view of the overall situation and hopefully will inspire some of my blog readers.

Dividend Increase – Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (OHI)


Yesterday, 12 October Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. announced a quarterly dividend increase of from $ 0.64 to $ 0.65 per share that’s payable November 15, 2017 to holders of record October 31, 2017. This represents a 1.56% increase to regular quarterly dividends. Maybe this increase appears to be small, but it is worth remembering that, Omega Healthcare Investors prefers to raise the dividend four times a year. The November payment in 2016 was $ 0.61 so 2017's payout represents an 6.56% increase year over year. Omega Healthcare Investors has now increased dividends for 21 consecutive quarters. With current price $ 31.41 (yesterday's close), this raise brings their dividend yield to 8.28%. 

Since I own 185 shares this will increase my yearly net dividends by $ 5.51.

That increase rises my YOC to 7.38%
