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 $626.73, consisting of:

Annualized Dividend Income

During the month, new purchases increased the PCP's annualized income by $175.92. With the new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $6,234.46 at the current dividend rates. This is up $266.00 from last month's $5,968.46 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.
