In the month of September we continued our small purchases of companies already in our portfolio. We purchased 1 share of AMGN for $214.29; 3 shares of AFL for $157.53; 3 shares of FAF for $202.44; 2 shares of ABBV for $218.68; 1 share of CVX for $102.77; 3 shares of MO for $138.57; 2 shares of T for $54.40; 3 shares of OHI for $90.27; 2 shares of PRU for $211.30; 3 shares of VZ for $162.66; 3 shares of WBA for $142.83; and 7 shares of AEG for $35.74. In total we purchased $1,731.48 worth of stocks this month.
The increase was due to increase payments from PSX, V, HON, SWKS, JNJ, LYB, EVR, SNA, WBA, RHI, NWL, TSN, PRU, AEG, TROW, EVC, and AVGO. New payments from INTC, AMGN, CVX, MET, and FAF. Restarted dividends from LEA, though less than they were paying pre-pandemic. And Lastly, SPG paying out in Oct last year instead of September as is typical for them.
As noted throughout our posts this year, 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. Overall we’ve crossed our original goal for this year of $4,000.00 in dividend income and are now seeing how much of a beat we can get on the year! We also hit the milestone of crossing $10,000.00 in total dividend income since the start of the portfolio in 2018!
