With almost a 8% dividend (7.8% at the time of this writing), Omega Healthcare (OHI) makes a nice stock to own in your retirement portfolio. It recently hit a short-term bottom at $32 and has been slowly moving back up. There is plenty of noise about buyers trying to get in at $28 which would be a great level but highly unlikely to get to that point. Yellen has mentioned that she plans to raise rates in September which should be a tiny raise and should not affect the pricing of this stock. Remember, the baby boomer generate is continuing to retire and move into senior housing which will benefit this stock.
