Investing Update 12/28/2018

Here is my overall year-to-date update.

1/1/201812/28/2018Change since Jan 1stAvg/Week
Robinhood Portfolio Value$3,586.18$4,392.52$806.34
Money from my pocket$2,902.00$4,593.98$1,691.98$32.72
Dividends$137.76$237.51$99.75$1.93
Gains/Realized & Unrealized$546.42-$438.97-$985.39

I just need to continue on with dividend investing and my gains will slowly come back. The market correction, along with trying options over the summer, made a negative dent in my portfolio. My strategy since October has been to stick with dividend investing, and in the next rolling 12 months, I will be receiving 368 dividend payments - http://www.bloggingmitch.com/2018/11/368-dividend-payments-per-year.html

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

Dividends Received in 2018$99.75
# of Dividends Received in 2018226
Average Dividend Payment Amount$0.441

I'm one quarter away from reaching $100.00 in dividends for 2018! I will for sure hit that goal this coming Monday, when I have 12 dividends scheduled to be paid.

I made a video talking about my dividend updates from this past week - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S_Eaj_-ZC7Y

I have $15.32 in buying power, and I'm not sure what my next stock purchase will be. Right now on my watchlist I have Procter & Gamble (PG) and Ally Financial (ALLY). I would be able to purchase Ally sooner than PG because Ally stock is currently at $22.50/share compared to PG at $91.29/share. PG currently has a higher dividend though.

I won't be making any more stock purchases this year and ALLY and/or PG will have to wait until 2019.

Thanks for reading. 

Signed,

Mitch
