VEREIT (NYSE: VER) and Realty Income (NYSE: O) were featured in this week’s Simply Wall St Journal. The piece covers the proposed merger of Realty Income and VEREIT, announced back in April, and details of the deal expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2021. “Realty Income Corporation (NYSE: O) is one of the more popular dividend payers. It relies on a lease business model to deliver a stream of predictable monthly income,” the publication reads. “The announced merger with VEREIT (NYSE: VER) could be a positive development for the company’s dividend potential and diversifying its property portfolio. Sometimes, investors buy a popular dividend stock because of its yield and then lose money if the company’s dividend doesn’t live up to expectations. In this case, Realty Income likely looks attractive to investors, given a payment history of over ten years. It would not be a surprise to discover that many investors buy it for dividends.”
