Dividend increase Sabra Health Care Reit Inc.
At the 1st of November the board of Sabra Health Care Reit Inc. decided to increase the quarterly dividend from $ 0,43 to $ 0,45 per quarter. This means an increase of $ 0,02 per share per year which translates to a 4,65% increase. The dividend is paid on November the 30th 2017 to shareholders of record on November the 15th 2017. Besides the standard dividend the company pays $ 0,0701087 per share wich is the difference between the prorated dividend paid on August the 18th and the previous full quarter dividend of $ 0,43 per share.
Since I have 46 shares this increase means that my yearly dividend for Sabra Healthcare is now $ 82,80, up from $ 79,12 or a $ 3,68 increase in yearly dividends. After taxes I will receive $ 70,38 per year from the company.
This increase means Sabra Health Care currently yields 9,26% and my yield on cost rises to 6,67%.
I never bought Sabra. I never voluntarily choose for Sabra. However, CCP merged with Sabra and this was the result. I was in doubt about what to do with my shares but for now I just keep them. The dividend is nice and I hope to get some of my loss back on this position which is a very real possibility. Chances are Sabra will receive a credit upgrade in 2018 and the company is working on challenges it faces. We shall see how it turns out.
For now I’ll take the dividend and the dividend increase!
