Dividends Posted

I logged on to my ROTH IRA account and was surprised to see it in the positive after the bad streak the market has been running around with.

The green was because I had $252.70 posted to my Roth IRA account... my dividends for the year. Not the $600 i originally thought, but I forgot to factor in the fact that the "yield" I looked up on that particular day was not offered the entire time.

anyways, I had them re-invested it in the mutual funds I currently have. It looks like I broke ruffly even on my accounts considering that I would have made about the same amount of money that the dividends paid out if the money would have been in cd's... but had I not bought the mutual funds i'd still be seriously in the hole from the market tanking... so I'll call it a financially wise move on my part.


Here's hoping for a better 2010!
