Portfolio Update (January 2017)

After breaking for six months in updating this blog, I have finally found time to sit down and continue to update the blog on my stock investing. Hopefully, this year, we can see some good profits and dividend payouts.

The month of January, most of the stock holdings in my portfolio are in the positive range with the exception of Clorox Co (NYSE: CLX). Overall, the portfolio is in the green as well, thanks to Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADP).


For the month of January, two companies in my portfolio paid dividends. These include:

  1. Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADP) – $6.36
  2. PepsiCo, Inc. (NYSE: PEP) – $7.64

All the dividends paid for the month were reinvested.

Total Year-to-Date (YTD) dividends, as of January 31, is $14.00 or 0.26%.
