July 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 dividends earned.

Dividends Received

Total dividends received during the month were $635.96, consisting of:

- $21.33 Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP)

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $8,141.28 at the current dividend rates. This is up $436.68 from last month's $7,704.60 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.
