DIVIDEND REPORT :: JUNE 2021

For June 2021, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from twenty-three different companies (AFL, PSX, V, INTC, HON, SWKS, JNJ, SNA, CVX, EVR, WBA, MET, LYB, FAF, RHI, NWL, TSN, PRU, SEIC, TROW, LEA, EVC, AVGO). The total was $379.85 This was a 123% increase from June of 2020 where the total was $170.46.

The increase was due to new payouts from AFL, INTC, CVX, MET, FAF, SEIC. A resumption of dividends in LEA. TROW, EVC, AVGO paying out in June this year instead of July. And finally increased payouts from PSX, V, HON, SWKS, JNJ, SNA, EVR, WBA, LYB, RHI, NWL, TSN, PRU. As noted prior, 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. However, we’re happy to take these 100% increases and tracking the yr/yr we are well ahead of where we were last year.

STOCK PURCHASES :: CVX, VZ, ABBV, MO, TROW, T, AFL, OHI, PRU, AEG

In the month of March we purchased a number of shares in companies we currently own in our portfolio. The following were purchased: 12 shares of VZ for $689.64; 10 shares of CVX for $1,049.80; 3 shares of ABBV for $325.59; 3 shares of MO for $153.87; 2 shares of TROW for $345.24; 3 shares of T for $90.93; 3 shares of AFL for $153.69; 3 shares of OHI for $110.79; 3 shares of PRU for $274.27; and 31 shares of AEG for $146.94. In total we purchased $3,349.76 worth of stocks this month.

This large purchase amount used up the rest of the profit we achieved from our sale of GME in January. As noted in January, we still hold 1/2 of our original position in GME. For April we will be back to our normal purchase amounts.

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.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: SEPTEMBER 2020

For September 2020, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from seventeen different companies (PSX, SWKS,V, HON, JNJ, LYB, SNA, EVR, WBA, RHI, TSN, NWL, PRU, AEG, TROW, EVC, AVGO). The total was $243.18. This was a 59% increase from September of 2019 where the total was only $153.35.

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!

This was a 27% increase from July 2019 where the total was $159.10. The difference was increased payments from TROW, AVGO, MO, GNTX, and CMCSA. New payments from LECO, MSM, and SPG. And in spite of EVC cutting their dividend and CIM not paying dividends this July, but instead in August. Overall, this is a another good month and we cautiously hope to continue the streak month over month as the companies in our portfolio deal with the Covid-19 Pandemic. The great news is with the increase this month we have now surpassed our entire yearly total from 2019 ($1,389.58) and we still have five more months to go!
