Recent Investment –FUNDRISE

This month i put in new capital to work in Fundrise. I added another $500 to my existing capital.This is the third time adding capital ,first time since 2016 .My dividends are also being reinvested .Thinking of doing $500 quarterly investment in fundrise or semi annually .

For Q4 i received 35.54 Dividends which are reinvested as follows.Compared to 2018 Q4 this is $3 less in dividends.

Since i started investment in fundrise in 2016 ,so far received $490 in dividends and $311 in appreciation.

Any one else investing in fundrise or crowd street or similar platforms.

New Year started and the market isnt slowing ,I was waiting to invest in my roth IRA account .

I added 5 shares of GD at 178.18 on Jan2nd .I am was waiting to add GD and this will add another $20 to my dividends and i will receive my first dividend payment in Feb .The ex dividend date is jan16th ,so there is a chance i may add another 5 or wait.

401K Buys

As mentioned before my company was bought by Another company,that had better      401k  Plan.It was almost 3 months they since they stopped deduction due to merger and integration . Finally it was ready for us to contribute ,one benefit is  3% Match  which i didn’t have in my previous company.

So i wanted to my max out my 401k  contribution for 2019  and decided to aggressively contribute to the new plan and try to catch up the lost 3 months. With that in my mind  and contribution made to old plan i  will max out if i plan correctly.

For  the first i own shares in the company that is going to manage my 401k plan.

so here are my new purchases i made  in the new plan,some of the existing names i have in my account.

PRUDE

 

So i added 11 shares of VIMAX a 5 star rated on Morningstar  which adds another $32 In dividends to the Fund.

Another addition is 37 shares of VTMGX and this add another $12 dividends to my Fund.

 

Now i have to rollover my old 401k ,i am thinking of either moving it into Vanguard directly or Merrill Edge they have nice promotions if you rollover 401k.

Anyone had experiences with either of them please share in comments.
