For April 2020, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from six different companies (AVGO, EVC, LECO, GNTX, CMCSA, MSM). The total was $98.52. This was a 9% increase from April 2019 where the total was $89.31. The difference was increased payments from EVC, AVGO, GNTX, and CMCSA. Plus new payments from LECO, and MSM. And in despite of losing dividends from GME and TROW paying out in March this year. Overall, this is a another good month and cautiously hope to continue the streak month over month as the companies in our portfolio deal with the Covid-19 Pandemic.

We already have confirmation that F has suspended its dividend and we are expecting more companies to do the same.

This is a another great start to the year, but we will had to temper our expectation in light of the Covid-19 Pandemic.
