Investing Update 1/16/2016

It was another week of stock prices going down in value, and lots of stocks being sold off. As I said last week, the market goes up, the market goes down. This isn't the end of the world. If I had more money available currently, I'd be buying a ton of stocks.

Year-To-Date Update

1/1/20161/15/2016Change since Jan 1st
Robinhood Portfolio Value$607.87$616.58$8.71
Money from my pocket$550.00$600.00$50.00
Dividends$9.79$11.07$1.28
Gains/Realized & Unrealized$48.08$5.51-$42.57

The table above shows the change in my Robinhood portfolio since the start of 2016. My realized and unrealized gains are trending towards $0, and by next week I may have an overall negative return.

Dividends

DisneyDIS$0.71
US BancorpUSB$0.26
Realty IncomeO$0.19
Total$1.16

I received $1.16 in dividends this week from the 3 companies listed above. For "O", I believe the dividend payment was $0.195, so I will have to see how Robinhood handles the half cent portion of the dividend.
