Portfolio Yield Points

For this week's exercise I decided to look at the yield points of the stocks in my portfolio. This is based on current yield Friday's close (or close to the closing price - I do not remember when I downloaded it) and on the forward year yield. Yield was carried out to two digits after the decimal point, and several were within a couple of hundreths of the next category.

Overall current yield of portfolio (total annual dividends / value of holdings) is 3.76.
