March 2012 Pocket Change Portfolio Performance

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 $671.30, consisting of:

- $88.62 Intel Corporation (INTC)

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $7,063.28 at the current dividend rates. This is up $281.76 from last month's $6,781.52 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.
