For May 2020, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from eight different companies (CIM, MO, FL, T, AOS, ABBV, TXN, OHI). The total was $246.27. This was a 43% increase from May 2019 where the total was $172.77. The difference was increased payments from CIM, MO, T, ABBV, TXN, and OHI. Plus new payments from AOS, and FL. However, FL announced it was suspending its dividend due to COVID-19. Overall, this is a another good month and cautiously hope to continue the streak month over month as the companies in our portfolio deal with the Covid-19 Pandemic.
