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 $275.95, consisting of:
$16.34 United Technologies Corp. (UTX)
$18.85 Emerson Electric Co. (EMR)
$52.92 Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)
$15.60 Consolidated Edison Inc. (ED)
$20.74 McDonald's Corp. (MCD)
$57.60 Harleysville Group Inc. (HGIC)
$9.20 Owens & Minor Inc. (OMI)
$84.70 Universal Health Realty Income Trust (UHT)
The following securities were purchased during the month:
54 Shares Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT) providing $78.84 in annual dividend income
68 Shares ConocoPhillips (COP) providing $179.52 in annual dividend income
Annualized Dividend Income
Including the above purchases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $3,964.07 at the current dividend rates. This is up $249.66 from last month's $3,714.41 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.
Life-to-date: 15.54% (annualized)
The next PCP update will be mid-April.
