The explanation why I began serving to John and Jane with their retirement accounts is that I used to be infuriated by the charges they had been being charged by their earlier monetary advisor. I don’t cost John and Jane for something that I do, and all I’ve requested of them is that they permit me to write down about their portfolio anonymously with the intention to assist unfold data and to make me a greater investor within the course of.
Producing a steady and rising dividend earnings is the first focus of this portfolio, and capital appreciation is the least necessary attribute.

This represents a rise of 8.1% and a brand new full-year payout of $1.60/share in contrast with the earlier $1.48/share. This ends in a present yield of 1.67% primarily based on the present share value of $95.93.
Digital Realty – The information middle world has turn into a little bit bit smaller over the previous few years with smaller rivals getting devoured up by bigger ones. QTS Realty (QTS), CoreSite Realty (COR), and CyrusOne (CONE) have all been acquired by personal corporations or acquired into the bigger entity of American Tower (AMT). DLR and Equinix (EQIX) are the 2 knowledge middle REITs nonetheless in John and Jane’s retirement portfolios. DLR is a wonderful inventory for publicity to this subject however the value has not too long ago elevated to the purpose the place we can not justify including shares to the place. We’re usually focusing on a share value of $130/share which might end in a yield of three.40% (see the graph under).
The dividend was elevated from $1.16/share per quarter to $1.22/share per quarter. This represents a rise of 5.2% and a brand new full-year payout of $4.84/share in contrast with the earlier $4.64/share.

ENB’s robust efficiency has translated into a positive dividend coverage and now they’ve introduced a share repurchase plan for as much as 31 million shares or roughly $1.5 billion. ENB’s distribution is well-covered by distributable money move which signifies that it’s a secure funding for these in search of dependable/constant earnings. ENB near a 6% yield is an affordable entry level for many potential traders.

This represents a rise of three% and a brand new full-year payout of $3.44/share in contrast with the earlier $3.34/share.

Eaton – ETN has not too long ago dropped to its 52-week-low and now could be again as much as a degree the place shares are now not a horny shopping for alternative. The most effective half about the latest earnings announcement is that they’ve elevated margins from 17.4% in This autumn-2020 to 19.3% in This autumn-2021. I additionally actually like that ETN is rising organically and thru acquisitions at a price of 6% and seven% respectively. Over the past three years, ETN reworked from a slow-growth industrial behemoth to a quickly rising industrial powerhouse that’s centered on high-margin merchandise.
The dividend was elevated from $.76/share per quarter to $.81/share per quarter. This represents a rise of 6.6% and a brand new full-year payout of $3.24/share in contrast with the earlier $3.04/share. This ends in a present yield of two.17% primarily based on the present share value of $149.95.
Predominant Avenue Capital – MAIN has all the time offered at a big premium to e-book worth making it some of the costly Enterprise Growth Firms (BDCs) in the marketplace. I contemplate this huge premium to be justifiable primarily based on MAIN’s glorious administration crew and their robust monitor document of discovering lower-middle-market corporations that they might help take to the following degree. As of March 31, 2022, MAIN’s personal mortgage portfolio totals $1.3 billion unfold out over 79 distinctive debtors. MAIN elevated its dividend again in January and March’s enhance was a particular dividend which is in keeping with how they’ve beforehand dealt with their dividends. Lots of the loans in MAIN’s portfolio are floating charges so we should always see an enchancment in curiosity earnings over the following a number of months. MAIN is a purchase underneath $40/share (the present e-book worth per share was $25.29 as of December 31, 2021).
MAIN paid a particular dividend of .075/share in March 2022.
NextEra Vitality – NEE is a singular utility within the sense that it’s quickly rising and comes with a five-year dividend development price of just below 12%. NEE’s enterprise mannequin is closely centered on renewable vitality sources and its photo voltaic portfolio generates greater than 3600 MWs making it the biggest of any utility within the nation in accordance with Q1-2022 Earnings Name Presentation. Potential traders will seemingly need to wait with the current announcement that the US authorities’s probe into photo voltaic panel imports will delay the corporate’s photo voltaic and storage tasks by a minimum of a 12 months. We might look so as to add to this place if shares transfer under $70/share primarily based on this current announcement. If we base the acquisition value on the dividend yield a horny entry level could be about 2.20% or increased.
The dividend was elevated from $.385/share per quarter to $.425/share per quarter. This represents a rise of 10.4% and a brand new full-year payout of $1.70/share in contrast with the earlier $1.54/share. This ends in a present yield of two.09% primarily based on the present share value of $76.18.
UMH Properties – UMH is considered one of my favourite shares within the present surroundings as a result of it provides a substitute for the ridiculous housing costs whereas nonetheless giving its tenants the flexibility to stay in well-kept neighborhoods. I wrote the article UMH Properties – Inexpensive Housing Crunch Drives The Worth Proposition roughly 6 months in the past. There are a number of different REITs resembling Solar Communities (SUI) which additionally present publicity however promote at a ridiculous a number of when in comparison with UMH. Forecasting for UMH signifies that it’s anticipated to hit its stride over the following two years which is able to enhance the protection of the dividend tremendously. UMH’s share value is at present on the high-end of the vary which signifies that I might await shares to drop earlier than initiating a place (or including to an current one).
The dividend was elevated from $.19/share per quarter to $.20/share per quarter. This represents a rise of 5.3% and a brand new full-year payout of $.80/share in contrast with the earlier $.76/share. This ends in a present yield of three.23% primarily based on the present share value of $24.80.
The Williams Firms – WMB’s main enterprise mannequin is to function and keep 30,000 miles of pipelines and 23 million barrels of NGL storage. When contemplating WMB as an funding it is very important contemplate money move as some of the necessary metrics when figuring out the dividend protection (in any other case it seems like WMB’s dividends will not be sustainable). FFO dividend protection is persistently about 200% which makes the dividend seem extra sustainable than if we used earnings. Whereas WMB doesn’t profit instantly from elevated vitality costs, it does profit from the demand since its infrastructure is required to maneuver the product.
The dividend was elevated from $.41/share per quarter to $.425/share per quarter. This represents a rise of three.7% and a brand new full-year payout of $1.70/share in contrast with the earlier $1.64/share. This ends in a present yield of 4.73% primarily based on the present share value of $35.68.

First on the checklist is NEE. We not too long ago offered this small tranche of shares as a result of they represented the high-cost portion of the place. The timing couldn’t be higher given the current announcement that photo voltaic panel tasks might be delayed for a minimum of one 12 months as a consequence of a US Authorities investigation (see the replace on NEE above).
As for all different purchases these had been shares that we consider had been undervalued on the time and represented engaging entry factors primarily based on the dividend yield.

We’re actually blissful to see the estimated enhance in annual dividends the place it’s as a result of we all know that this could solely enhance additional. I like to consider dividend will increase relative to inflation since because of this Jane’s rising dividends might help fight the upper costs she might want to pay with the intention to afford the upper price of products and providers.
The issues concerning the economic system slipping right into a recession and out-of-control inflation have me being much more prudent about concerning what value level we’re prepared to buy new/further shares.
