To date, I have invested $12,220 into the account the total value of all positions plus any cash on hand is $12,354.46. That’s a total gain of 1.10%. The account is down $83.28 for the week which is a 0.67% loss.
We started building this portfolio on 9/24/2021 and when compared to the S&P 500 we are outperforming the market so far! Within that same timeframe, the S&P 500 is down -11.00% which puts us 12% higher than the market! I love tracking my portfolio against a benchmark like the S&P. The above chart comes from Sharesight
which makes portfolio and dividend management a breeze!
Below is a table of everything we are invested in so far. There you can see my number of shares, shares bought through dividend reinvestments, average cost, gains, and more. The tickers in green are positions that I bought shares in this week, the blue ones are positions that I reinvested dividends into, the yellow ones are positions that announced a dividend increase this week, and the red are positions that I trimmed. Our moves this week increased my PADI by $7 to $469.
This week we received $6.79 in dividends! $1.64 from $APD
, $1.84 from $TXN
, $1.92 from $O
, and $1.39 from $ALLY
In my portfolio, all positions have dividend reinvestment enabled. I don’t hold onto the dividend, I don’t try to time the reinvestment, I just let my broker do it automatically.
Dividends received for 2022: $328.49
Portfolio’s Lifetime Dividends: $351.41
