Robinhood Portfolio Value = (Money from my pocket) + (Dividends) + (Gains/Realized & Unrealized)
Since January 1st, 2017, my portfolio has grown by $1,408.28. $1,026.00 of that growth (value increase) came from money out of my own pocket to buy more stocks. $76.77 of that growth came from dividends. $306.51 of that growth came from stock prices increasing.
This Week's Stock Purchases
I did not buy any stocks this past week.
At this point in time, I have 47 stocks. 46 of those stocks pay dividends, and the other stock is AMD (I bought it because it is considered a "meme" stock, and I think the conversation around AMD is fun to follow).
I am able to buy so many different stocks due to not paying commission fees, thanks to the trading app called Robinhood. If you want to learn more about Robinhood, click here.
