The Pocket Change Portfolio (PCP) was first introduced on September 13, 2008 as a real money dividend income portfolio funded by the “pocket change” earned from my various online endeavors. Each month I report on the portfolio’s progress and update its holdings.
Total dividends received during the month were $217.51, consisting of:
$16.15 United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX)
$8.71 Emerson Electric Co. (NYSE:EMR)
$15.47 Consolidated Edison Inc. (NYSE:ED)

The following securities were purchased during the month:
- 140 Shares Universal Health Realty Income Trust (UHT) providing $338.80 in annual dividend income
- 66 Shares Leggett & Platt, Incorporated (NYSE:LEG) providing $71.28 in annual dividend income
Annualized Dividend Income
Including the above purchases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $3,046.63 at the current dividend rates. This is up $354.08 from last month’s $2,692.55 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.
