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.

- $44.94 Intel Corporation (INTC)
- $44.88 ConocoPhillips (COP)

Annualized Dividend Income

Including the above purchases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $4,720.41 at the current dividend rates. This is up $316.68 from last month's $4,403.73 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

- Month: (-1.31%)
