Investing Update 12/23/2016

Hello and welcome to my investing update! This is my weekly update on my Robinhood Portfolio. Robinhood is an app that lets you trade stocks, and it doesn't charge commission fees to trade those stocks.

General Updates

This week was pretty boring! I think I'm done trading for the year, I'm just going to let things settle so I can run my numbers to review 2016 and prepare for 2017.

There is a YouTuber I've been watching recently, and he also talks about his progress with his Robinhood account -

I also tried Robinhood Gold again, but I still don't understand trading with margin. I tried doing more research, and it didn't help. Maybe someday I'll use Robinhood Gold permanently.

New Stock/Adding Shares

I had one returning stock that I purchased this week. Apple. I've heard Apple is a pretty popular company.

  • 1 share purchased at $116.52
  • 4 dividends/year * $0.57/dividend = 1.96% dividend yield
So I used to own Apple, but I sold it, and now I've bought it again. 


0 dividends this week. BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
