The 27% Bank Account Revealed

by andy h on February 28, 2008 · 3 comments

I’ve been seeing a lot of Google ads lately promoting this “27% Bank Account”. I found this interesting but didn’t want to sign up for the newsletter to find out what the 27% bank account was. Conducting a Google search revealed that the company being referred to is Realty Income Corporation. The stock currently yields 6.6%. I believe the 27% figure refers to the stock’s total return over the last 13 years. The interesting thing about the stock is it has paid a monthly dividend for the last 452 months. I don’t have any money to invest right now or I would consider investing some money in the stock. If you want to look up more information on the stock it has the ticker symbol “O“.

Even though O produces a nice dividend income, I would stay away from it untill the current financial crisis is over.
You could read my analysis on the company on my blog:

I won’t be investing in any individual stocks for quite a while because I don’t have enough money to properly diversify. I hope the financial crisis will be over by the time I have sufficient money.

I totally agree with you that you have to be diversified when it comes to stocks. However, if you own 40-50 stocks that pay steady and increasing dividends, and you can afford to invest the money for years and even decades, the long term results would be pretty decent.
Or you could simply buy SDY, and ETF tracking dividend aristocrats.
