Trade - Buy

I added more shares to my position to American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP)

101 shares @ 12.77 on 5-9-2014

This will increase my forward 12-months dividend by $100.60 to a total of $1552.04

I updated my Portfolio to reflect the change.

I brought theses shares just in time. That same day ARCP had a 2% pop. Today it is up 1.73% as of this writing, so yes I brought it just in time.

This graph shows Funds From Operations (FFO). When looking at REITs, EPS is not what we look at. What needs to be looked at is FFO. As we can see here ARCP is very much undervalue base on FFO.

This shows that in 5 years there will be about a 61.1% return.

This shows that my $3,000 that I currently have invested will be worth $13k in 10 years.

What do you think of ARCP?


  1. Nice purchase. This stock has been on a lot of radars recently, including mine. Hopefully it pulls back over the next few weeks so I can pick up some more shares.

    1. Thanks Pipeline, I got it just in time under $13. Hopefully you will be able to do the same if there is a pull back.

  2. Great buy...we also initiated a small position in ARCP this month. We picked up 50 shares at $12.63 and added roughly $50 to our forward 12-month dividend. We won't hesitate to pick up more if the stock drops further.

    Wishing you continued success in your journey!
