For October 2020, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from nine different companies (VALE, MO, LECO, GNTX, CSCO, SPG, CMCSA, CIM, and FL). The total was $737.43. This was a 656% increase from October of 2019 where the total was only $97.56. This massive increase was due mostly because stocks paying in odd months due to COVID-19 delays. Particularly for this month, VALE paid out $532.69 of the $737.43 and typically pays out in September. Also CIM and FL paid out in October this year as opposed to November last year. The rest of difference can be attributed to increased payments from MO, GNTX, CMCSA and new payments from LECO and SPG.
This is also in spite of EVC and AVGO paying out in September this year instead of October like last year. We hope to continue the beat streak month over month and finish the year out strong though November will be tough with some of the bigger payers CIM and FL paying out this month. We are also closing in on the $3,000.00 mark for the year and we still have two months to go!
