The portfolio was up in November, for the year and since its inception. Online earnings in November surpassed the $3,000 mark for the first time. A large portion of the increase is related to the strong interest in D4L-Premium Services. The premium service continues grow each month. The subscriber retention rate remains in the 85-90% range. Traffic on Dividend Value continues but high, but was lower than the record October level.
During the month of November, I purchased 26 shares of Nucor Corporation (NUE) providing me $36.40 in annual earnings at the current dividend rate. I also purchased 14 shares of Vanguard Intermediate-Term Bond ETF (BIV) providing me $48.30 in annual earnings at the current dividend rate. Including the November purchases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $517.74 at the current dividend rates. I ended the month with $4,398.18 in cash, enough to purchase two or three stocks in December. Through November, I have purchased ten stocks this year, including at least one in the last seven consecutive months. I continue to believe the current cash balance and recent earnings will support the purchase of at least one stock each month.
My PCP holdings are always available by selecting the Holdings option from the menu in the header. The next PCP update will be mid-January.
