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.
On June 28, 2019, 28 shares of RHI were purchased. The cost, including fees, was $1,595.95. For an average cost per share of $57.00.
