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 $542.76, consisting of:
$65.94 Intel Corporation (INTC)
$66.00 ConocoPhillips (COP)
$49.64 Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (WMT)
