Dividend Increase: HCP

HCP, Inc. (HCP) is increasing its quarterly dividend by 3.8%, from $0.525 to $0.545 per share, putting the company on track for its 29th consecutive year of dividend growth (news release). Given that I own 115 shares of HCP, my quarterly dividend increases from $60.38 to $62.68 and my yield on cost becomes 5.50%. The extra $9.20 in annual dividend income raises my forward 12-month dividend total to $4,269.


  1. DGM,

    After a roller coaster market week, this is welcome news!

  2. Great news! My first increase of the year. I have 80 shares. Not a huge amount but I'll take it.

  3. Dividend increase right in line with what I was expecting, excellent news!

  4. Hi DGM,

    I bought HCP on Friday, 40 shares.
    And in 3 weeks I´ll receive the new and higher dividend :-)
    Perfect time :-)
    Good company!

    Best regards

  5. Hmm. That is a bit lower than I was hoping for, but in line with my longer term expectations. Can't really complain.

    Wow I see you gobbled up many new shares in January.

    Best wishes!
