DIVIDEND REPORT :: SEPTEMBER 2022

For September 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from twenty-seven different companies. (EVC, AVGO, SPG, TROW, AEG, LEA,RHI, FAF, NWL, TSN, PRU, SWKS, MET, VALE, CVX, EVR, SNA, WBA, AMGN, LYB, JNJ, HON, AFL, PSX, V, INTC. & F). The total was $1,763.13. This was a 286% increase from September of 2021 where the total was $456.68. The major difference year over year was that VALE paid out its massive dividend in September this year instead of October. As such, we will see a big drop year over year in October because of the change in pay dates. Looking towards the later quarter of the year we are now around $1,200.00 from last years total – its going to be very close to see if we can top 2021s numbers.

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 :: 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.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: DECEMBER 2021

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!

As noted prior, 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. However, we’re happy to take these 100% increases and tracking the yr/yr we are well ahead of where we were last year.

The heavy lifting was done this month by VALE who paid out $979.02 itself. Last year, due to COVID VALE paid out their March payment in August, however it was significantly less. The remainder of the March dividends came from new payments from AFL, INTC, JNJ, HON, & MET. Increased payments from V, SWKS, PSX, SNA, PRU, EVR, WBA, RHI, NWL, TSN, LYN, LEA, & TROW.
