In the month of June we purchased a number of shares in companies we currently own in our portfolio. It was basically a repeat of our May purchases as we look to get to “full” positions in AMGN and FAF, as well as, add to some of our higher yielders. We purchased 3 shares of AMGN for $729.12; 9 shares of FAF for $556.74; 1 share of ABBV for $112.57; 3 shares of MO for $141.80; 1 share of T for $28.74; 1 share of OHI for $36.43; 1 share of PRU for $102.03; and 6 shares of AEG for $24.66. In total we purchased $1,732.09 worth of stocks this month.
For June 2021, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from twenty-three different companies (AFL, PSX, V, INTC, HON, SWKS, JNJ, SNA, CVX, EVR, WBA, MET, LYB, FAF, RHI, NWL, TSN, PRU, SEIC, TROW, LEA, EVC, AVGO). The total was $379.85 This was a 123% increase from June of 2020 where the total was $170.46.
The increase was due to new payouts from AFL, INTC, CVX, MET, FAF, SEIC. A resumption of dividends in LEA. TROW, EVC, AVGO paying out in June this year instead of July. And finally increased payouts from PSX, V, HON, SWKS, JNJ, SNA, EVR, WBA, LYB, RHI, NWL, TSN, PRU. As noted prior, we expect the year over year percentages to vary wildly from month to month as the pandemic threw off the typical months a bunch of our companies payout. However, we’re happy to take these 100% increases and tracking the yr/yr we are well ahead of where we were last year.
