In 2019, Divs4Jesus increased its dividend income by 13% year over year. To see how it all went down click here.
For January 2020, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from five different companies (EVC, AVGO, MO, GNTX, & CMCSA,). The total was $102.76. This was a 398% increase from January 2019 where the total was $20.64. The difference was increased payments from EVC, GNTX, AND CMCSA as well new payments from MO and AVGO paying in January this year instead of in December of 2018 as it did in the past. This is a great start to the year and we hope to continue the momentum going forward.
On January 31, 2020, 17 shares of PSX were purchased. The cost, including fees, was $1,550.06. For an average cost per share of $91.18.
On January 28, 2020, 3 shares of AVGO were purchased. The cost, including fees, was $941.82. For an average cost per share of $313.94.
For December 2019, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from thirteen different companies (F, V, LYB, SNA, PRU, WBA, EVR, RHI, TSN, NWL, SWKS, LEA, TROW). The total was $162.27. This was a 13% increase from December 2018 where the total was $143.79.
With the strong finish in December, we were able to come back from the blow of losing 62% of our 2018 dividend income (GME and VALE suspended there dividends in 2019). The Divs4Jesus portfolio ended 2019 with a total of $1,389.58 vs. $1,229.41 in 2018. This is $160.17 increase over 2018 is a 13.03% increase year over year. A full recap of 2019 will be posted in the coming weeks.
On December 23, 2019, 11 shares of SPG were purchased. The cost, including fees, was $1,603.47. For an average cost per share of $145.77.
On December 18, 2019, 21 shares of MSM were purchased. The cost, including fees, was $1,582.56. For an average cost per share of $75.36.
For November 2019, the Divs4Jesus Portfolio received dividend income from eight different companies (CIM, FL, T, AOS, ABBV, TXN, OHI, and MSM). The total was $166.70. This was a 104% increase from November 2018 where the total was $81.90. We are now only $2.10 away from bringing in more dividend income than last year. December should more than cover this as its another big month for payouts. We hope to finish out the year strong!
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).
