Investing Update 1/5/2019

Here's the first investing update of 2019!

1/1/20191/5/2019Change since Jan 1stAvg/Week
Robinhood Portfolio Value$4,434.08$4,433.28-$0.80
Money from my pocket$4,593.98$4,593.98$0.00$0.00
Dividends$240.00$241.90$1.90$2.66
Gains/Realized & Unrealized-$399.90-$402.60-$2.70

So my overall portfolio dropped 80 cents since January 1st. Since I received $1.90 in dividends in 2019 already, and my portfolio still dropped 80 cents, then that means the overall value of my stocks dropped $2.70. 

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

Dividends Received in 2018$1.90
# of Dividends Received in 20185
Average Dividend Payment Amount$0.380

Here's a breakdown of the five dividends I received - 

CompanyTicker SymbolDividend AmountDiv Yield
HP Inc.HPQ$0.165.56%
HP EnterpriseHPE$0.113.10%
Wal-MartWMT$0.522.05%
Seagate TechnologySTX$0.505.10%
Iron Mountain Inc.IRM$0.617.45%

I'm pretty happy to have already received five dividends in the three trading days of 2019 (Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday). The Seagate dividend was smaller than projected. According to my projection from previous dividends, I projected to get $0.63, but instead received $0.50. I'm not sure what caused the dividend reduction, but it's still a nice dividend.

Thanks for reading. 

Signed,

Mitch
