There's the dividend, of course. The current payout is an alluring 5.5%. But you can count on it going higher, because Omega's track record includes regular, predictable increases.

There's also the company's core business: It operates nursing facilities for the aged - a growing population that should provide Omega with an increasing customer base for years to come.
