Omega Healthcare Investors (NYSE: OHI) declared a quarterly dividend of $0.58 per share, or $2.32 annualized. This is a 1.8% increase from the prior dividend of $0.57.The dividend will be payable on May 16, 2016, to stockholders of record on May 2, 2016, with an ex-dividend date of April 28, 2016.The annual yield on the dividend is 6.6 percent, which happens to be the same as my YOC.
On the other hand, the Board of Directors of Ford Motor Company didn’t raise its quarterly dividend. They declared a second quarter dividend of $0.15 per share on the company’s outstanding Class B and common stock. The second quarter dividend is the same level as the regular dividend paid in the first quarter of 2016. The second quarter dividend is payable on June 1, 2016 to shareholders of record at the close of business on April 29, 2016.Except the special dividend last quarter, Ford has kept its regular dividend per share for the fifth quarter in a row. Disappointing. My YOC will stay at 5.3%.
