Investing Update 12/23/2018

Here is my overall year-to-date update, and it's not good -

1/1/201812/23/2018Change since Jan 1stAvg/Week
Robinhood Portfolio Value$3,586.18$4,303.04$716.86
Money from my pocket$2,902.00$4,593.98$1,691.98$33.18
Dividends$137.76$236.15$98.39$1.93
Gains/Realized & Unrealized$546.42-$527.09-$1,073.51

As you can see, my gains have gone done by over $1,000. In the long-run, things will balance out again, but as of right now, it's not fun to look at. If I'm able to contribute more money, I can buy more of the stocks/ETFs I own at a lower price, and increase the dividend yield (as long as the dividend doesn't get cut or reduced). 

Here are the year-to-date numbers on my dividends - 

Dividends Received in 2018$98.39
# of Dividends Received in 2018223
Average Dividend Payment Amount$0.441

I'm pretty close to reaching $100.00 in dividends for 2018, and I believe I will hit that goal this week. I also made a video talking about my dividends, seen below. 

Thanks for reading, and Happy Holidays!

Signed,

Mitch
