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

In the month of October we continued buying stocks we already own that we feel have fallen below their fair value and added to our newest tickers  SWK and SMG. Here’s what we purchased in October: 2 more shares of TROW for $215.40; 3 shares of MO for $138.80; 3 shares of CMCSA for $94.55; 5 shares of INTC for $142.10; 3 shares of WBA for $109.98; 5 shares of VZ for $186.59; 6 shares of SWK for $474.49; 10 shares of SMG for $452.40; and 1 share of AEG for $4.61. In total we purchased $1,818.92 worth of stocks this month.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: OCTOBER 2022

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.

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. In total we purchased $1,818.26 worth of stocks this month.

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. Here’s what we purchased in July: 10 more shares of TROW for $1,,222.00; 3 shares of MO for $131.93; 8 shares of CMCSA for $299.60; 4 shares of INTC for $142.52; and 5 shares of AEG for $22.10 In total we purchased $1,818.15 worth of stocks this month.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: JULY 2022

For July 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from nine different companies. (AEG, MO, LECO, GNTX, MSM, CMCSA, CSCO, CIM, and FL). The total was $396.19. This was a 59% decrease from July of 2021 where the total was $969.50. The decrease was the first month over month decrease since the start of the year and can be contributed to the the special dividend payment from VALE that was received in 2021 but not this year. Also SPG paid out in June this year vs July last year. Excluding the special dividend payment we would have had an increase so we are not so concerned and hope to switch back to increases in August.

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.

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.
