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

In the month of August we continued our small purchases of companies already in our portfolio. We purchased 1 share of AMGN for $224.41; 4 shares of FAF for $284.12;  1 share of ABBV for $120.76; 2 shares of CVX for $195.90; 6 shares of MO for $300.60; 1 share of T for $27.46;  1 share of OHI for $33.47; 2 shares of PRU for $213.02; 5 shares of VZ for $275.45; 1 share of WBA for $49.90; and 2 shares of AEG for $9.84. In total we purchased $1,734.93 worth of stocks this month.

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.

In the month of May we purchased a number of shares in companies we currently own in our portfolio and added two new additions. We took starter positions in AMGN with 2 shares for $477.04 and FAF with 8 shares for $505.76.  We also increase our positions with: 2 shares of ABBV for $228.08; 3 shares of MO for $148.44; 2 shares of T for $58.98; 2 shares of AFL for $112.52; 2 shares of OHI for $73.10; 1 share of PRU for $105.23; and 5 shares of AEG for $23.40.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: MAY 2021

For May 2021, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from seven different companies (BMY, VZ, T, ABBV, AOS, TXN, OHI). The total was $179.34 This was a 27% decrease from May of 2020 where the total was $246.27.

The decrease is simply due to three stocks paying out in April this year as opposed to May of 2020 (CIM, MO, FL). Otherwise we had increases from all other holdings and BMY as a new payor. As noted prior, we except 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.

STOCK PURCHASES :: CVX, T, PRU, OHI, MO, AFL, ABBV, VZ, & AEG

In the month of April we purchased a number of shares in companies we currently own in our portfolio. The following were purchased: 15 shares of VZ for $858.29; 3 shares of CVX for $311.88; 1 share of ABBV for $110.94; 2 shares of MO for $94.82; 2 shares of T for $62.31; 2 shares of AFL for $107.12; 2 shares of OHI for $75.84; 1 share of PRU for $100.25; and 2 shares of AEG for $9.24. In total we purchased $1,730.69 worth of stocks this month.

STOCK PURCHASES :: CVX, VZ, ABBV, MO, TROW, T, AFL, OHI, PRU, AEG

In the month of March we purchased a number of shares in companies we currently own in our portfolio. The following were purchased: 12 shares of VZ for $689.64; 10 shares of CVX for $1,049.80; 3 shares of ABBV for $325.59; 3 shares of MO for $153.87; 2 shares of TROW for $345.24; 3 shares of T for $90.93; 3 shares of AFL for $153.69; 3 shares of OHI for $110.79; 3 shares of PRU for $274.27; and 31 shares of AEG for $146.94. In total we purchased $3,349.76 worth of stocks this month.

This large purchase amount used up the rest of the profit we achieved from our sale of GME in January. As noted in January, we still hold 1/2 of our original position in GME. For April we will be back to our normal purchase amounts.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: FEBRUARY 2021

For February 2021, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from five different companies (T, TXN, AOS, ABBV, and OHI). The total was $135.87. This was a 193% decrease from February of 2021 where the total was $398.97. As noted in the January post, this was expected as FL, CIM, and MSM all paid out in January this year as opposed to their typical February payment. Further, MSM last February paid out their regular dividend plus a special one-time dividend of $5/share which really boosted Feb 2020s total. We hope to turn things around in March and get back to seeing increases yr/yr.

As noted prior, we except 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. As such, the yearly total will be most important to beat.

STOCK PURCHASES :: ABBV, AFL, INTC, CSCO, MET, OHI, MO, PRU, T, TSN, WBA, & AEG

On January 29, 2021, we purchased a number of shares in companies we currently own in our portfolio. The following were purchased: 3 share of ABBV for $306.54; 6 shares of INTC for $335.70; 11 shares of CSCO for $492.25; 10 shares of MET for $480.37; 11 shares of AFL for $494.21; 3 shares of MO for $123.78; 3 shares of T for $86.34; 3 shares of OHI for $109.08; 3 shares of PRU for $235.14; 30 shares of AEG for $121.05; 3 shares of TSN for $191.28 and 2 shares of WBA for $101.36. In total we purchased $3,077.10 worth of stocks this month.

In January we also had our first SELL ever in the Divs4Jesus portfolio. We sold half our GME position for $7,208.84 during the wild run up. With an original purchase price of $1379.45 half of that would be a $689.73 cost basis for a realized return of 945%. We deployed some of this cash in the purchases above, but are also sitting on the close to $6,000, which will be deployed over the coming months. We still own 50.542 shares in GME.
