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.

Dividends Received

Total dividends received during the month were $217.51, consisting of:

Dividend Stock Purchases

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.
