In the month of August we continued buying more of some of the stocks we already own that have dipped in price or remained low. Still on the lookout for new companies to add but they haven’t hit our buy targets just yet, however a few are within 5% of our targets so maybe they’ll get added in September depending on what the market does. Here’s what we purchased in August: 10 more shares of TROW for $1,208.00; 3 shares of MO for $135.33; 4 shares of CMCSA for $145.03; 3 shares of INTC for $96.30; 5 shares of AEG for $22.50; and 5 shares of VZ for $211.10. In total we purchased $1,818.26 worth of stocks this month.
For August 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from seven different companies. (BMY, VZ, T, AOS, ABBV, TXN, and OHI). The total was $235.67. This was a 26% increase from August of 2021 where the total was $201.95. The same seven companies paid out in August for both years so the percentage gain here can be attributed to increased dividend amounts and additional purchases of these companies.
In the month of July we continued buying more TROW as the price has remained low. 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 July: 10 more shares of TROW for $1,,222.00; 3 shares of MO for $131.93; 8 shares of CMCSA for $299.60; 4 shares of INTC for $142.52; and 5 shares of AEG for $22.10 In total we purchased $1,818.15 worth of stocks this month.
For July 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from nine different companies. (AEG, MO, LECO, GNTX, MSM, CMCSA, CSCO, CIM, and FL). The total was $396.19. This was a 59% decrease from July of 2021 where the total was $969.50. The decrease was the first month over month decrease since the start of the year and can be contributed to the the special dividend payment from VALE that was received in 2021 but not this year. Also SPG paid out in June this year vs July last year. Excluding the special dividend payment we would have had an increase so we are not so concerned and hope to switch back to increases in August.
