November 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 $505.79, consisting of:

- $83.64 Abbott Laboratories (ABT)
- $31.62 General Dynamics Corp. (GD)
- $48.19 National Retail Properties, Inc. (NNN)
- $68.62 Nucor Corporation (GPC)
- $23.36 People's United Financial Inc. (PBCT)
- $79.80 Procter & Gamble Co. (PG)
- $72.00 Raytheon Co. (RTN)
- $98.56 AT&T, Inc. (T)

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $8,962.88 at the current dividend rates. This is up $170.28 from last month's $8,792.60 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

- Year-to-date: 10.89%
- Life-to-date: 14.64% (annualized)
