To paraphrase the great philosopher Justin Timberlake: it’s gonna be May which means April is already in the books. In fact; when this post is live it will be May already. So no more time to waste - let’s check in on what happened with my portfolio in the past month of April.
Three buys in one month is pretty exceptional for me, but I actually kept going and made two more purchases on the last trading day of April. I will cover these final two April purchases in an upcoming post.
By now it should be clear that I have a spending problem - although I think it’s the best kind. Reason being, with each new stock purchase I increase my forward dividend income and get closer to achieving my investment goals.
At the end of April 2016 my portfolio consisted of 27 positions with a total value of $33,106. At the end of March 2017 my portfolio consisted of 41 positions with a total market value of $79,066 - a Year-on-Year (YoY) increase of 138%.
This YoY increase is shown in the graph below.
