The table above shows the change in my Robinhood portfolio since the start of 2016.
Robinhood Portfolio Value = (Money from my pocket) + (Dividends) + (Gains/Realized & Unrealized)
I received three dividend payments this week.
|Company||Ticker Symbol||Dividend Amount||Stock Buy Price||Annualized Div Yield|
The annualized dividend yield = (Dividend Amount * 4) / Stock Buy Price.
The reason the dividend amount is multiplied by 4 is because these stocks pay dividends 4 times a year. So the yearly amount of dividends I'll receive divided by the cost of the stock equals the dividend yield.
I'm pretty happy with a 5.66% yield on the AT&T stock, and close to a 5.0% yield on the Verizon stock. These yield %'s have the opportunity to go up if one or two things happens.
1. I buy additional shares at the same price or less than what I bought the current stocks at.
2. The companies raise their dividends.
I did not buy any stocks this week.
