Realty Income Corp, stock symbol, O, the Monthly Dividend Company, is the asset I’m going to analyze today using my weird Japanese investing system. Is this monthly dividend-paying stock worth investing in? If so, when should you buy? Today I’m using the Ichimoku cloud analysis and my Invest Diva Diamond Analysis (IDDA) to develop an investment strategy for the Realty Income Stock, O.
(… Which works even if you’re not a math whiz, don’t have a ton of extra cash, and busy juggling life & kids. )
I look at the markets based on my signature Invest Diva Diamond Analysis (IDDA) and combine it with the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo strategy development technique including indications from the Ichimoku cloud. The IDDA looks at investment strategies from 5 points: technicals, fundamentals, sentiment, capital, and overall.

Realty Income Corp Stock Opportunity & Risk
The company is the largest triple-net REIT in the U.S. It’s a monthly dividend company, which pays more often than the regular, quarterly dividend stocks. 80% of Realty Income’s tenants are in retail, but most focus on defensive segments. It’s service-oriented, protected against e-commerce pressures, and resistant to economic downturns.
On the flip side, Realty Income Corp is subject to changing consumer tastes and economic situations. Almost half of its tenants are not investment-grade and more than half of its net operating income is still concentrated in its top 20 tenants.
Realty Income’s properties are generic shells that can attract a wide number of possible tenants. However, there is nothing unique about the properties that can’t be re-created by other developers.
Realty Income Corp Stock Technical Analysis
The O stock price broke below the daily Ichimoku cloud in November 2019. Before that, the majority of investment banks had upgraded their position on the stock and therefor it reached an all-time high beginning of November. Ichimoku Kinko Hyo strategy suggests we could see further drops towards the 38% Fibonacci retracement level of 68.70. However, the stock price can find support at the next Fibonacci retracement levels.
This may provide an opportunity to buy Realty Income Corp stock at lower prices. However, if you’d like to start receiving dividend payments, then you might want to consider investing earlies at the current market price.
