In the month of December we continued our small purchases of companies already in our portfolio. We purchased 1 share of AMGN for $226.35; 5 shares of AFL for $292.35; 1 share of TROW for $197.17; 1 share of ABBV for $135.88; 3 shares of MO for $141.39; 4 shares of OHI for $118.84; 2 shares of PRU for $216.16; 5 shares of VZ for $259.60; 5 shares of T for $123.35; and 4 shares of AEG for $19.72. In total we purchased $1,730.81 worth of stocks this month.
For December 2021, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from twenty-five different companies (AFL, PSX, INTC, F, HON, LYB, JNJ, V, AMGN, SNA, EVR, WBA, CVX, MET, SWKS, RHI, FAF, NWL, TSN, PRU, LEA, TROW, EVC, AVGO, & SPG). The total was $491.66. This was a 11% increase from December of 2020 where the total was $444.73. The increase was due to new payments from AMGN, CVX, & FAF. A resumption of the dividend from F, SPG paying out in December this year which they did not do last year, and increased payments from the remaining payers. The increase is also despite of no special payment from MSM this year, which accounted for 38% of December 2020’s total payment so we’re really happy to see us beat the year over year.
This December payment put us well over the $7,000.00 mark for the year, with the total dividends in 2021 closing out at $7,241.99.
A full recap of 2021 and comparison year over year will be posted in the coming weeks.
