Investing Update 6/3/2016

My stocks went up a lot again this week. It has been 22 weeks since January 1st, 2016. I want to point out that yes, I've added $925.00 to my Robinhood Account since then. If you break this down on a weekly basis it's $42.05. I realize that this is a lot of money, and a lot of people can't afford that every week. My Mission is to encourage folks to give some thought to their finances. I do not want to turn anyone off from reading because they can't relate to the money I'm investing.

There are tons and tons of websites/blogs that help people save and learn about money, here are a few that I like -

$1.60 in dividends this week!

I received 4 dividend payments this past week. I've been saying June is going to be a big month. As far as Ford goes.... I'm not overly excited about it, but there is still a lot of changes coming in the driving industry in the next 20 years, and I think Ford will be a reliable manufacturer for Uber, Lyft, Self-Driving Cars, etc (personal thoughts, no evidence to back this up).
