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.

 

DIVIDEND REPORT :: MAY 2021

For May 2021, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from seven different companies (BMY, VZ, T, ABBV, AOS, TXN, OHI). The total was $179.34 This was a 27% decrease from May of 2020 where the total was $246.27.

The decrease is simply due to three stocks paying out in April this year as opposed to May of 2020 (CIM, MO, FL). Otherwise we had increases from all other holdings and BMY as a new payor. 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.
