DIVIDEND REPORT :: NOVEMBER 2021

The increase was due to increased payments from T, AOS, TXN, ABBV, OHI, & MSM. Plus new payments from BMY and VZ.

As we turn to the last month of the year we’re shooting to cross the $7,000.00 mark in yearly income. Based on the December’s 2020 payments we should be able to hit it though December 2020 did have a large special payment from MSM which we’ll miss this year. However, with all the investments made throughout the year we’re hopeful we’ll be able to offset that one off.

STOCK PURCHASES :: ABBV, AEG, AFL, AMGN, INTC, MO, OHI, PRU, WBA, & VZ

In the month of October we continued our small purchases of companies already in our portfolio. We purchased 2 shares of AMGN for $413.56; 2 shares of AFL for $108.48; 2 shares of INTC for $96.79;  2 shares of ABBV for $227.70; 6 shares of MO for $266.10;  3 shares of OHI for $90.00; 2 shares of PRU for $223.68; 3 shares of VZ for $158.67; 3 shares of WBA for $141.63; and 1 share of AEG for $5.04. In total we purchased $1,731.65 worth of stocks this month.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: OCTOBER 2021

This massive month was all due to a huge payout from VALE. VALE alone paid out over $2,000.00 this month. This was a regular dividend payment from VALE but the large amount was due mostly to iron-ore prices more than doubling during the pandemic. The spot price has since fallen to more normal levels so we unfortunately don’t expect repeat cash outs like this but no complaints when they come in. Further, comparing with last October there was no new payers this month and actually one less payment as SPG paid out in September this year instead of October.

Last month we noted we crossed our goal of $4,000.00 for the year. One month later we’ve now crossed $6,000.00 for the year. With two months left we’re going to see if we can cross $7,000.00. If we can. the real challenge then will be trying to top it in 2022.

STOCK PURCHASES :: ABBV, AFL, FAF, CVX, OHI, T, PRU, VZ, WBA, AMGN, MO, AEG

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.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: SEPTEMBER 2021

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!

STOCK PURCHASES :: ABBV, AMGN, CVX, FAF, VZ, MO, OHI, PRU, T, WBA, & AEG

DIVIDEND REPORT :: AUGUST 2021

The decrease was mostly due to VALE paying out their March 2020 dividend in August 2020 because of covid and their dam problems. We also had CIM pay out in July this year where in 2020 the payment came in August. On the positive side, we had increases in payments from OHI, T, ABBV, AOS, and TXN. Plus new August payments from BMY and VZ.

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.
