STOCK PURCHASES :: (TROW, SWKS, MO, PRU, VZ, & AEG)

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.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: MAY 2022

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.

STOCK PURCHASES (TROW, MO, FL, OHI, VZ, PRU, WBA, ABBV, INTC, & AEG)

In the month of April we picked up shares in TROW and FL as well as a few others in our current portfolio. As prices fall we may even add some new names. But for now this is what we purchased in April: 6 more shares of TROW for $763.98; 3 shares of MO for 169.08; 2 shares of FL for $59.86; 2 shares of OHI for $52.32; 5 shares of VZ for $235.65; 2 shares of PRU for $222.74; 2 shares of WBA for $87.05; 1 share of ABBV for $142.36; 2 shares of INTC for $88.70; and 2 shares of AEG for $10.49. In total we purchased $1,832.23 worth of stocks this month.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: APRIL 2022

For April 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from nine different companies (T, LECO, GNTX, MSM, CMCSA, CSCO, CIM, FL, MO). The total was $366.80. This was a 30% increase from April of 2021 where the total was $282.93. The increase was due to increased payments from eight of the companies. Technically the payment from T was not a dividend payment but cash in lieu of fractional shares for the spin-off of WBD, which for now we are still holding in the portfolio. This was only $11.06 of the total monthly payout so it’s good to see the monthly amount increasing even when it’s all the same payors. In fact it’s even excluding SPG who paid out in March this year instead of April like in 2021. We hope this momentum continues throughout the year.

STOCK PURCHASES: TROW, MO, FL, WBA & AEG

In the month of March we continuing picking up shares of TROW and FL as they slide further down as well as a few other minor purchases.

In total we purchased $1,819.08 worth of stocks this month.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: MARCH 2022

First and foremost we are sorry for the late posts in getting March’s info uploaded, but better late than never. And speaking of better, for March 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from twenty-six different companies (AFL, PSX, V INTC, F, AMGN, JNJ, SNA, CVX, EVR, PRU, HON, WBA, MET, RHI, FAF, LYB, NWL, TSN, SWKS, VALE, LEA, TROW, EVC, AVGO, & SPG). The total was $1,648.89. This was a 30% increase from March of 2021 where the total was $1,269.88. The increase was due to increased payments from twenty-three of the companies and new payouts from portfolio adds AMGN, CVX, and FAF. Plus resumed payments from F and SPG paying out in March this year instead of April like in 2021. Over $1,000.00 of this was from VALE who is still paying out large dividends thanks to high commodity prices.

STOCK PURCHASES :: FL, MO, PRU, & TROW

In the month of February we made a few purchases in companies we already own. Continuing from last month TROW is still below our buy range so we picked up another 5 shares for a total of $710.85. We also picked up another 25 shares of FL for $735.21. FL took a massive drop on news that Nike will stop selling a number of products through FL stores in a bid to sell more directly to consumers. While this is bad news for FL, as Nike products made up somewhere around 70% of its sales in 2021, Nike isn’t ending its distribution deal with FL completely and FL will look other brands to replace those Nike product sales. We also purchased 3 shares of MO for $153.33; and 2 shares of PRU for $220.02. In total we purchased $1,819.41 worth of stocks this month.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: FEBRUARY 2022

For February 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from seven different companies (T, VZ, BMY, TXN, ABBV, AOS, & OHI). The total was $262.81. This was a 93% increase from February of 2021 where the total was $135.87. The increase was due to increased payments from five companies and new payouts from portfolio adds VZ and BMY. This is likely the last payment from T before they cut their dividend so we’ll see how they affects our totals going forward. However, we’ve added VZ over the last year which has the same payout months so it should help soften any loses.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: JANUARY 2022

For January 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from nine different companies (SEIC, MO, LECO, GNTX, MSM, CMCSA, CIM, & FL). The total was $329.09. This was a 20% increase from January of 2021 where the total was $274.08. The increase was due to increased payments from all nine companies and despite no payment from SPG which paid out in December in 2021 instead of January. A great way to start the new year with a 20% gain from 1 less payout.
