Investing Update 2/19/2016

I'm really excited for Robinhood Instant, and I'm looking forward to it being launched. Judging from the Robinhood subreddit, some people already have RH Instant from having enough friend referrals. This means that the coding/programming is up and running, and hopefully it's rolled out to the rest of us soon.

Robinhood Instant will be an update to the Robinhood App. With the update, if I sell a stock on Monday, I can use that money to buy another stock "instantly", or right away. I won't have to wait 3 days for the funds to settle. This can be very good and very bad, which is why there will be "Pattern Day Trader" protection available.

Year-To-Date Update

1/1/20162/19/2016Change since Jan 1st
Robinhood Portfolio Value$607.87$733.77$125.90
Money from my pocket$550.00$675.00$125.00
Gains/Realized & Unrealized$48.08$44.55-$3.53

The table above shows the change in my Robinhood portfolio since the start of 2016.

Robinhood Portfolio Value = (Money from my pocket) + (Dividends) + (Gains/Realized & Unrealized)


I received two dividends this past week. One from Procter & Gamble for $0.66 and one from Realty Income for $0.20. My dividend from Realty Income last month was $0.19, so I've already seen a dividend increase from them.

Stock Purchase

I did not buy any stocks this week. After I get my tax return, I'll most likely buy as many stocks as economically possible/feasible.

2016 Investing Missions

  • Purchase and hold 25 different stocks that pay dividends: 15/25 - 60% Completed (Not counting Disney stock)
  • Receive $75 in dividends: $11.33/$75.00 - 15.1% Completed. The year is 13.7% completed, so I am on pace to complete this Mission by the end of the year.
