Investing Update 1/6/2017

Hello! I normally try and post my investing updates on Fridays, but I ran into maintenance issues in my apartment on Friday. It became a headache, and I couldn't get anything done.

The format of my investing updates may look a little different these first few weeks, as I want to play around with formatting/presentation. I hope to make it even easier to understand.

Year-To-Date Update

1/1/20171/6/2017Change since Jan 1stAvg/Week
Robinhood Portfolio Value$2,186.18$2,296.18$110.00
Money from my pocket$1,876.00$1,966.00$90.00$105.00
Gains/Realized & Unrealized$250.91$269.24$18.33

Robinhood Portfolio Value = (Money from my pocket) + (Dividends) + (Gains/Realized & Unrealized)
  • The average/week #'s are going to look weird because the average is using the first 6 days of the year. As time goes on, these numbers will look normal again.

Stock Purchases

I bought two stocks this week, Cisco (CSCO) and Sysco (SYY)! 
  • CSCO - Purchase Price of $30.30
  • $0.26 dividend * 4 payments/year = $1.04
  • $1.04/$30.30 = 3.43% dividend yield - Nice!

  • SYY - Purchase Price of $54.62
  • $0.33 dividend * 4 payments/year = $1.32
  • $1.32/$54.62 = 2.42% dividend yield - Decent!

Dividend Stocks
  • I currently own 32 dividend stocks
  • 31 of those stocks pay dividends 4 times/year = 124 payments
  • 1 stock pays dividends 12 times/year = 12 payments
  • Total dividend payments needed to get paid "Every Other Day" - 183
  • 183 - 124 - 12 = 47 
  • 47 more payments needed or approximately 12 more dividend stocks. 
I am able to buy so many different stocks due to not paying commission fees, thanks to the trading app called Robinhood. If you want to learn more about Robinhood, click here
