Dividends, Investing and Options Trading for Week Ending 11/12/21

The S&P 500 index, Dow index and Nasdaq index were all down this week. Most of my accounts were down for the week except one which barely managed to finish in the green for the week. Investing wise, it was a slow week. Personally, it was a busy week. Let’s check out the details for my week!

Dividends

The following dividend was received in the Traditional IRA this week:

  • Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) – $45.10

This dividend is pending reinvestment into the underlying position.

The following dividend was received in the taxable brokerage account this week:

  • Deere & Co. (DE) – $0.04

This dividend was deposited into the core account to be reinvested at a later time.

The total amount of dividends received this week was $45.14.

Buys/Sells

The following buys were made in the Traditional IRA this week:

  • Vanguard Total Stock Market Index ETF (VTI) – 0.5 shares

The Traditional IRA finished the week at about $121,068. This is down -$601 from the previous week.

The Roth IRA finished the week at about $1,254. This is up $3 over the previous week.

The 401k finished the week at about $9,824. This is down -$38 from the previous week.

The taxable brokerage account finished the week at about $378. This is down -$7 from the previous week.

The little bit of bitcoin that I have finished the week at just $30. This is up almost $2 over the previous week.

The total amount invested is now about $132,554. This is down -$641 from the previous week. You can see all of the positions in my portfolio by clicking here or on “Portfolios” in the menu.

Wrap Up

The total amount of dividends and options premium received this week was $54.54. Like I said in the opening it was a slow week of investing. Overall it was a down week for the accounts and only a small amount of income was generated. Weeks like this will happen. In the long run the accounts and the income produced from the accounts will grow. On the personal side, I received the payment from the insurance company for the car accident. I was able to use this money to purchase a used vehicle outright. I no longer have a car payment which is a very good thing. That about wraps it up for this week. Thanks for following!

On a side note, I have added a Recommended Resources in the menu. It currently is a work in progress. It will contain blogs and YouTube channels that I enjoy as well as some sites that I use. I hope you take the time to check it out.
