STOCK PURCHAES :: (TROW, SEIC, SPG, AFL, MO, PRU, SWKS, & VZ)

In the month of June we continued buying more TROW as the price declined further. 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 June: 10 more shares of TROW for $1,096.20; 3 shares of MO for 136.37; 1 share of SWKS for $92.74; 1 share of VZ for $49.75; 1 share of SPG for $98.20; 1 share of SEIC for $52.76; 2 shares of PRU for $186.10; and 1 share of AEG for $4.39. In total we purchased $1,824.15 worth of stocks this month.

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.

STOCK PURCHASES :: FL, MO, PRU, & TROW

In the month of February we made a few purchases in companies we already own. Continuing from last month TROW is still below our buy range so we picked up another 5 shares for a total of $710.85. We also picked up another 25 shares of FL for $735.21. FL took a massive drop on news that Nike will stop selling a number of products through FL stores in a bid to sell more directly to consumers. While this is bad news for FL, as Nike products made up somewhere around 70% of its sales in 2021, Nike isn’t ending its distribution deal with FL completely and FL will look other brands to replace those Nike product sales. We also purchased 3 shares of MO for $153.33; and 2 shares of PRU for $220.02. In total we purchased $1,819.41 worth of stocks this month.

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.
