DIVIDEND REPORT :: MAY 2022

For May 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from eight different companies (BMY, VZ, T, KT, AOS, ABBV, OHI, & TXN). The total was $359.95. This was a 101% increase from May of 2021 where the total was $179.34. The increase was due to increased payments from six of the companies.  A new payment from KT and despite a reduced dividend payment from T who lowered their dividend when Warner Bros was spun off.

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.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: FEBRUARY 2022

For February 2022, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from seven different companies (T, VZ, BMY, TXN, ABBV, AOS, & OHI). The total was $262.81. This was a 93% increase from February of 2021 where the total was $135.87. The increase was due to increased payments from five companies and new payouts from portfolio adds VZ and BMY. This is likely the last payment from T before they cut their dividend so we’ll see how they affects our totals going forward. However, we’ve added VZ over the last year which has the same payout months so it should help soften any loses.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: NOVEMBER 2021

The increase was due to increased payments from T, AOS, TXN, ABBV, OHI, & MSM. Plus new payments from BMY and VZ.

As we turn to the last month of the year we’re shooting to cross the $7,000.00 mark in yearly income. Based on the December’s 2020 payments we should be able to hit it though December 2020 did have a large special payment from MSM which we’ll miss this year. However, with all the investments made throughout the year we’re hopeful we’ll be able to offset that one off.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: AUGUST 2021

The decrease was mostly due to VALE paying out their March 2020 dividend in August 2020 because of covid and their dam problems. We also had CIM pay out in July this year where in 2020 the payment came in August. On the positive side, we had increases in payments from OHI, T, ABBV, AOS, and TXN. Plus new August payments from BMY and VZ.

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.
