The portfolio did very well in the month of July, taking the Year-To-Date and Life-To-Date returns positive. Online earnings in July continued to improve as I added a new subscriber only Premium Services section.
During the month of July, I purchased 14 shares of Vanguard Long-Term Bond ETF (BLV). This will provide me $56.00 in annual earnings at the current dividend rate. Including the BLV ETF, my annual PCP dividend income is now $315.10 at the current dividend rates. I ended the month with $954.61 in cash, so I will have to wait until September to purchase my eigth PCP stock. It is my goal to have sufficient earnings to purchase a stock at least eight times a year. Through July I have purchased five stocks this year.
My PCP holdings are always available by selecting the Holdings option from the menu in the header. The next PCP update will be mid-September.
