A number of readers have asked me for updates on the current yields of the stocks in my Dividend portfolio. That’s a good idea: The big rally in dividend paying stocks in 2016 has had a serious impact on yields with many once high-yielding stocks appreciating in price until their yields are now just middle of the pack. While I try to figure out a way to post a current yield on the portfolio page, I’ll start posting updates. The yields below are for the January 12 close on the 12 stocks in this portfolio.

Coach (COH) 3.80%
Qualcomm (QCOM) 3.24%
