For the month of April, we see that the market seems to be performing better. My portfolio saw all but one company still in the red. Everything looks pretty normal, except for Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT), who plunged 3.71% on the last day of April. Have been trying to find out why the stock price suddenly ‘gap down’ and if it is a cause for concern for our long term investment.
For the month of March, 3 companies from my portfolio paid dividends. They include:
- Automatic Data Processing (NASDAQ: ADP) – $5.84
All dividends paid for the month were reinvested.
Total year-to-date (YTD) dividends, as of April 30, is $40.20 or 0.70%, excluding the dividends that were reinvested.
