Investing Update 12/16/2016

Hello and welcome to my investing update!

General Updates

Tesla, you're a great company, and I believe in everything you're doing. For the time being, I had to sell the stock I had of yours to make room for other stocks. I will buy Tesla in the future, but for now, my immediate goal is buying more dividend-paying stocks.

As you'll see below, I'm closing in on the $1.00 in dividends per week mark!

I'm not going to make my dividend goal for the year, but I'm very proud of the portfolio that I've built.

New Stock/Adding Shares

I bought some new/returning stocks this week! This was mostly funded by selling the 1 share of Tesla stock I had.

  • Illinois Tool Works - $124.84 purchase price
    • $0.65/dividend * 4 dividends/year = $2.60/year
    • $2.60/$124.84 = 2.08% dividend yield
  • Starbucks - $58.67 purchase price
    • $0.25/dividend * 4 dividends/year = $1.00/year
    • $1.00/$58.67 = 1.70% dividend yield
  • General Electric (Returning stock) - $31.55 purchase price
    • $0.24/dividend * 4 dividends/year = $0.96/year
    • $0.96/$31.55 = 3.04% dividend yield
  • Abbott Laboratories - $38.76 purchase price
    • $0.27/dividend * 4 dividends/year = $1.08/year
    • $1.08/$38.76 = 2.79% dividend yield


I received 4 dividend payments this week! Fewer than the 7 last week, but 4 is awesome!
