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!

  7. In this fashion my associate Wesley Virgin's adventure starts in this SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL video.

    You see, Wesley was in the army-and shortly after leaving-he found hidden, "mind control" tactics that the CIA and others used to get whatever they want.

    THESE are the same SECRETS lots of famous people (especially those who "come out of nowhere") and elite business people used to become rich and famous.

    You've heard that you use only 10% of your brain.

    Mostly, that's because the majority of your BRAINPOWER is UNTAPPED.

    Maybe that expression has even taken place IN YOUR very own brain... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's brain seven years ago, while driving an unregistered, beat-up bucket of a vehicle with a suspended driver's license and $3.20 in his bank account.

    "I'm so fed up with living payroll to payroll! Why can't I turn myself successful?"

    You've been a part of those those types of conversations, ain't it so?

    Your very own success story is going to be written. You just need to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.
