January 2013 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 $338.67, consisting of:

- $ 23.49 Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP)
- $ 88.02 Cincinnati Financial Corp. (CINF)
- $109.62 Community Trust Bancorp Inc. (CTBI)
- $ 68.31 Genuine Parts Company (GPC)
- $ 27.95 Pepsico, Inc. (PEP)
- $ 21.28 Sysco Corporation (SYY)

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $9,739.34 at the current dividend rates. This is up $337.66 from last month's $9,401.68 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

- Year-to-date: 0.09%
- Life-to-date: 16.08% (annualized)
