New Purchase - W. P. Carey

REITs were having a bad day today so I decided to initiate a position in WPC.


Number of shares purchased
39
Price per share
$62.60
Commission
$9.95
Total cost per share
$62.85
Total cost
$2451.26
Annual dividend per share
$3.81
Initial dividend yield
6.06%
Increase in forward 12-month dividends
$148.59

My dividend income is now $8,679 per year.


I've been keeping a close eye on BAX, BBL, HCP, UNP and AXP. I'd really like to buy some UNP and AXP, but am waiting for better prices. Maybe selling puts on these two is the way to go.
