For October 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from seven different companies. (MO, LECO, GNTX, CMCSA, CSCO, FL, & CIM). The total was $334.34. This was a 86% decrease from October of 2021 where the total was $2,334.46. The major difference year over year was that VALE paid out its massive dividend in October last year instead of September like this year. Comparing the rest of the payers we had an increase of $72.85 from the same group of companies. It looks like it will come down to the wire to see if we can surpass our 2021 total year income with only Nov and December to go.
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.
