DIVIDEND REPORT :: MARCH 2021

For March 2021, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from twenty different companies (AFL, PSX, V, INTC, SWKS, JNJ, SNA, PRU, EVR, WBA, HON, RHI, NWL, MET, TSN, LYB, VALE, TROW, EVC, and AVGO). The total was $1,298.68. This was a 526% increase from March of 2021 where the total was $207.55.

This marks the first time the Portfolio has hit the four figures mark for any one month. It’s also more income than the Portfolio received in it’s first entire year just a short three years ago.

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. EVC and AVGO also paid out in March this year instead of April like last year. And lastly, in spite of no payments from F, or SPG this March.

As noted prior, we except 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.

STOCK PURCHASES :: KT, BMY, CVX, VZ, TROW, T, MO, PRU, AEG, OHI, WBA, AFL

In the month of February we purchased a number of shares in companies we currently own in our portfolio as well as four new names. The following were purchased: 155 shares of KT for $1728.23; 28 shares of BMY for $1728.72; 5 shares of CVX for $496.65; 5 shares of VZ for $280.10; 2 shares of TROW for $161.37; 3 shares of MO for $131.72; 4 shares of T for $113.72; 3 shares of OHI for $112.86; 3 shares of PRU for $259.77; 30 shares of AEG for $142.80; 3 shares of AFL for $145.05 and 3 shares of WBA for $143.93. In total we purchased $5,606.03 worth of stocks this month.

This large purchase amount used up most of the profit we achieved from our sale of GME in January, which netted us over $7000.00. As noted in January, we still hold 1/2 of our original position in GME and the stock once again is trading near its January highs, we may take some more profits depending on what happens in the next few weeks.

STOCK PURCHASES :: ABBV, AFL, INTC, CSCO, MET, OHI, MO, PRU, T, TSN, WBA, & AEG

On January 29, 2021, we purchased a number of shares in companies we currently own in our portfolio.

In January we also had our first SELL ever in the Divs4Jesus portfolio. We sold half our GME position for $7,208.84 during the wild run up. With an original purchase price of $1379.45 half of that would be a $689.73 cost basis for a realized return of 945%. We deployed some of this cash in the purchases above, but are also sitting on the close to $6,000, which will be deployed over the coming months. We still own 50.542 shares in GME.

Increased payments from V, LYB, SNA, SWKS, EVR, WBA, RHI, NWL, TSN, PRU, TROW. Payments from AVGO and EVC paying out in December this year instead of Jan 2021. And finally, despite no payment from F, and a decreased payment from LEA.

The total was $243.18. This was a 59% increase from September of 2019 where the total was only $153.35. The difference was increased payments from V, SNA, LYB, PRU, WBA, TSN, NWL, RHI, SWKS, and TROW.  New payments from PSX, HON, JNJ, and EVR. Plus EVC and AVGO paying out in September this year instead of October like last year.

This is also in spite of F making no dividend payment and payments from AEG and EVC essentially being cut in half due to COVID-19. We cautiously hope to continue the beat streak month over month and finish the year out strong. We are also happy to see our yearly total break the $2,000.00 mark this month and we still have three more months to go!
