A quiet day capped by a dividend
Tuesday, April 11, 2017
Today was a pretty quiet one.
My portfolio didn’t do much, but did spit out a dividend: $0.65 for the share of Illinois Tool Works (ITW) I own.
ITW has been a good stock for me. I bought a share last summer (Aug. 24) for $119.52. Since then the value of that one share has swelled to over $132 (up more than 11%). I’ve also earned a combined three dividend payments from the company, all for $0.65.
Today marked the ninth straight trading day I’ve received a dividend. I’ve been paid a combined $7.90 by 14 different companies so far this month … slow but steady progress.
– $2.99 (0.04%)
American Airlines (up $1.61, 3.80%), Deere & Company (up $1.53, 1.40%) and McDonald’s (up $1.46, 1.12%).
Royal Caribbean (down $2.65, 2.70%), Franklin Resources (down $1.03, 2.45%) and Qualcomm (down $1.20, 2.12%).
