This week I sold all my 58 shares Omega Healthcare Investors at a price of $38,26. As a result of this sale I reduce my yearly estimated dividend income by $136,56.
My average purchase price of the Omega Healthcare shares is $27,90 so I’m removing a 9,5% yield on cost position from my portfolio.
My return on investment in euro’s:
|Purchase 58 shares||-1.365,27|
|Sold 58 shares||1.974,22|
|ROI per year||31,9%|
I decided to sell Omega Healthcare mainly because I don’t feel comfortable with the performance of the tenants of Omega Healthcare Investors. Tenants of Omega Healthcare are companies running skilled nursing facilities and many operators in this market are struggling to stay profitable.
A few times already Omega Healthcare Investors adjusted their contract with major tenants resulting in reduced rent income or taking over capital investments which normally were paid by the tenant.
As a result the payout ratio of Omega Healthcare is very high at the moment and as I see it realistic that some more rent discounts have to be given to struggling tenants I decided to close this position.
I will miss the steady dividends I enjoyed since 2017, but I’m not feeling comfortable by the performance of the tenants of Omega Healthcare Investors so I’m happy to close the position and realize the capital gain.
