Another worth mention comes to its time as I gladly snapped up some shares of STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) into my portfolio. This REIT is a fairly newer company, but it is definitely making the right moves as it just has been on fire these last few years, as the company more than quadrupled its revenues from 2011 to 2015. The stock itself has been somewhat volatile in past three years, but without a doubt the company is making a ton of money and I would like some of it too. The company stouts a great looking dividend yield and what I really like about this company is that it is slowly, but surely becoming a nice dividend payer by growing and distributing its profits to shareholders on a consistent basis.

Basically, the company is a Real Estate Investment Trust that invests and manages real estate assets in the United States.

I purchased 45 shares for the price of $22.33 adding $62.53 to my annual dividend income.
This is the 7th time I am initiating a stock acquisition this year. This transaction is my first ever purchase of STAG shares into the portfolio. Currently, STAG ownership stake represents to be around 1.2% of my current portfolio value. Also, the acquisition of STAG makes it the 37th company I am invested in.
The 12-month dividend income increased to $2,680.
Thank you for reading & have a great day!
