STOCK PURCHASES :: (TROW, MO, CMCSA, INTC, VZ, WBA, SMG, & SWK)

In the month of September we continued buying stocks we already own that we feel have fallen below their fair value and finally pulled the trigger on two new names thanks to the continued turmoil in the markets. The two new adds were SWK and SMG. We only added a share or two as we feel the market will continue down a bit so we’ll build into a position slowly. Here’s what we purchased in September: 10 more shares of TROW for $1,079.00; 3 shares of MO for $123.00; 4 shares of CMCSA for $121.28; 6 shares of INTC for $158.46; 1 share of WBA for $31.56; 4 shares of VZ for $153.96; 1 share of SWK (a new add to the portfolio) for $77.53; and 2 shares of SMG (the other new add) for $86.22. In total we purchased $1,831.01 worth of stocks this month.

STOCK PURCHASES :: (TROW, MO, CMCSA, INTC, VZ, AEG)

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.

STOCK PURCHASES :: (TROW, MO, CMCSA, INTC, & AEG)

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.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: JUNE 2022

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.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: DECEMBER 2021

For December 2021, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from twenty-five different companies (AFL, PSX, INTC, F, HON, LYB, JNJ, V, AMGN, SNA, EVR, WBA, CVX, MET, SWKS, RHI, FAF, NWL, TSN, PRU, LEA, TROW, EVC, AVGO, & SPG). The total was $491.66. This was a 11% increase from December of 2020 where the total was $444.73. The increase was due to new payments from AMGN, CVX, & FAF. A resumption of the dividend from F, SPG paying out in December this year which they did not do last year, and increased payments from the remaining payers. The increase is also despite of no special payment from MSM this year, which accounted for 38% of December 2020’s total payment so we’re really happy to see us beat the year over year.

This December payment put us well over the $7,000.00 mark for the year, with the total dividends in 2021 closing out at $7,241.99.

A full recap of 2021 and comparison year over year will be posted in the coming weeks.

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!
