Investing Update 3/2/2019

It's March. Two months of 2019 are already over and it's hard to believe. I'm making good progress with dividend investing, and I just need to maintain this strategy. My account doesn't grow as fast with dividend investing as it could with other strategies, but it's a consistent strategy and I shouldn't lose a bunch of money with it. 

We're still getting mountains of snow where I live, and it's getting pretty old. I'm pretty used to the cold at this point, but I feel bad for my vehicle, since it has to sit outside in the elements. Anyway....

Here is this week's investing update -

1/1/20193/1/2019Change since Jan 1stAvg/Week
Robinhood Portfolio Value$4,434.08$4,921.74$487.66
Money from my pocket$4,593.98$4,643.98$50.00$5.74
Dividends$240.00$259.05$19.05$2.19
Gains/Realized & Unrealized-$399.90$18.71$418.61


My overall portfolio has increased $487.66 since January 1st. I have received $19.05 in dividends in 2019 and added $50.00 from my pocket. That means the other $418.61 increase came from the value of my stocks going up.

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

Dividends Received in 2018$19.05
# of Dividends Received in 201862
Average Dividend Payment Amount$0.307

Today is the 61st day of 2019, and I've received 62 dividends. So at this point, I'm averaging one dividend per day.

I received 16 dividends this past week, for a total of $2.91!

For the past few months now, the end of the month brings a lot of dividends. Getting 16 dividends in a week is pretty cool! I'm not getting a lot of money per dividend payment, but getting a lot of small payments adds up.

Have a good rest of your weekend!
