DIVIDEND REPORT :: OCTOBER 2019

For October 2019, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from five different companies (EVC, AVGO, MO, GNTX, and CMCSA). The total was $97.56. This was a 42% increase from October 2018 where the total was $68.57. It was great to see an increase even as we lost the income from GME’s dividend suspension and TROW which was paid out in September this year instead of October. The increases were attributed to DRIPing and/or dividend increases from EVC, GNTX, and CMCSA; plus new payments from AVGO and MO. After two months in in negative for year over year growth, we are glad to see a strong increase for October.

We are hoping to close out the year strong and still beat out last year’s total. Originally we were targeting to crack $2,000.00 at the beginning of the year however, we will be content with surpassing 2018’s total in light of the fact both VALE and GME suspended their dividends in 2019. Those two stocks accounted for 62% of the total income generated in 2018. So losing 62% of our income, but still coming out ahead will suffice for now. Further, it will be a giant boost to the portfolio once these stocks resume payments (likely for VALE not likely for GME anytime soon).

DIVIDEND REPORT :: SEPTEMBER 2019

DIVIDEND REPORT :: SEPTEMBER 2019

For September 2019,  the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from twelve different companies (F, V, SNA, LYB, PRU, WBA, TSN, NWL, RHI, SWKS, AEG, and TROW). The total was $153.35 This was a 64% decrease from September 2018 where the total was $423.81. The decrease was due to VALE suspending its dividend this year and is a similar result as March when VALE also did not pay. We knew September was going to be a tough month as we anticipated the non-payment from VALE, which accounted for $366.42 of last September’s $423.81 total. After two months in in negative year over year growth we hope to close out the year strong. Our goal is to beat out last year’s total.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: AUGUST 2019

DIVIDEND REPORT :: AUGUST 2019

For August 2019,  the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from five different companies (T, TXN, AOS, ABBV, & OHI). The total was $72.91 This was a 9% decrease from August 2018 where the total was $80.43. The decrease was due to CIM paying out in July this year instead of August. We didn’t beat August of 2018 total, but we came close thanks to the new payments from AOS, TXN, and ABBV. Let’s see how September plays out as we are anticipating a non-payment from VALE this year, which will be a big hit since it accounted for $366.42 of last September’s $423.81 total.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: JULY 2019

DIVIDEND REPORT :: JULY 2019

For July 2019,  the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from seven different companies (EVC, TROW, AVGO, MO, GNTX, CMCSA & CIM). The total was $159.10. This was a 1,163% increase from July 2018 where the total was $12.60. The increase was due both to new stocks added to the portfolio since last year, as well as repeat payments from EVC and CMCSA. EVC paid out 4.8% more than last year due to DRIPing and CMCSA paid out 12.89% more than last year due to DRIPing and a dividend increase. We should note CIM paid out in August last year so it was not included in the July 2018 total. Let’s see if we can top August of 2018’s total even without CIM since it’s been included in July’s total this year.

DIVIDEND REPORT :: JUNE 2019

DIVIDEND REPORT :: JUNE 2019

For June 2019,  the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from nine different companies (F, V, SWKS, WBA, TSN, NWL, LYB, PRU, & AEG). The total was $121.60. This was a 48% increase from June 2018 where the total was $81.99. The increase was due both to new stocks added to the portfolio since last year, as well as repeat payments from F, V, and TSN. The 48% increase is great to see since the Portfolio had another dividend suspension this month. GME has suspended its dividend indefinitely as it tries to figure out a path for the future. The Divs4Jesus Portfolio has now lost its two biggest dividend paying stocks; GME and VALE. GME’s looks gone for the foreseeable future, but I hope to see VALE’s resumed before the end of the year if it gets its dam and safety issues under control. The good news is even without these two top payers the portfolio is ahead of where it was last year. Through continued diversification we still hope to top our total dividends from 2018.  Let’s see how the second half the year turns out for the Divs4Jesus portfolio.
