My overall portfolio increased $242.87 since January 1st. I have received $6.46 in dividends in 2019 and added $50.00 from my pocket. That means the other $186.41 increase came from the value of my stocks going up.
Here are the year-to-date numbers on my dividends -
I received six dividends last week, totaling $1.13 -
This is my second dividend from Seagate this month. They paid a 50 cent dividend on January 2nd, 2019, and now another 13 cent dividend. This combined matches what they paid out the last four quarters, of 63 cents.
18 dividends in January so far, which is pretty cool! My average dividend payment is going down, but it will eventually go up once I buy more of the shares I own, instead of new shares.
Have a good weekend.
