In the month of June we continued buying more TROW as the price declined further. We also picked up a number of shares in companies we already own. As I noted last month – we are on the lookout for new companies to add but they haven’t hit our buy targets just yet. Here’s what we purchased in June: 10 more shares of TROW for $1,096.20; 3 shares of MO for 136.37; 1 share of SWKS for $92.74; 1 share of VZ for $49.75; 1 share of SPG for $98.20; 1 share of SEIC for $52.76; 2 shares of PRU for $186.10; and 1 share of AEG for $4.39. In total we purchased $1,824.15 worth of stocks this month.
For June 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from twenty-seven different companies, might be a record for us. (AFL, PSX, V, INTC, F, HON, JNJ, AMGN, SNA, EVR, WBA, CVX, LYB, MET, SWKS, RHI, FAF, NWL, TSN, PRU, SEIC, LEA, TROW, EVC, AVGO, & SPG). The total was $688.37. This was a 81% increase from June of 2021 where the total was $379.85. The increase was due to increased payments from twenty-three of the companies. A new payment from AMGN, a reinstated dividend from F, SPG paying out in June this year instead of July, and a special dividend payment from LYB in addition to their quarterly payment. We’ve now increased our monthly dividend payment year over year for the first 6 months of this year. However, July will likely end that streak as in July of 2021 we received a massive special dividend from VALE that we don’t expect with be issued this year. It will be interesting to see if we’ll still be head year to year after July.
In the month of May we continued buying more TROW as the price declined further. We also picked up a number of shares in companies we already own. As prices continue to fall we may even add some new names. But for now this is what we purchased in May: 10 more shares of TROW for $1,234.80; 3 shares of MO for 155.25; 2 shares of SWKS for $206.02; 2 shares of VZ for $99.62; 1 share of PRU for $100.25; and 4 shares of AEG for $20.99. In total we purchased $1,816.93 worth of stocks this month.
For May 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from eight different companies (BMY, VZ, T, KT, AOS, ABBV, OHI, & TXN). The total was $359.95. This was a 101% increase from May of 2021 where the total was $179.34. The increase was due to increased payments from six of the companies. A new payment from KT and despite a reduced dividend payment from T who lowered their dividend when Warner Bros was spun off.
