February 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 $533.80, consisting of:

- $65.60 AbbVie Inc. (ABBV)
- $48.19 National Retail Properties, Inc. (NNN)
- $69.09 Nucor Corporation (NUE)
- $72.32 People's United Financial Inc. (PBCT)
- $79.80 Procter & Gamble Co. (PG)
- $98.00 Raytheon Co. (RTN)
- $100.80 AT&T, Inc. (T)

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $9,779.72 at the current dividend rates. This is up $40.38 from last month's $9,739.34 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

- Year-to-date: 4.11%
- Life-to-date: 16.97% (annualized)

Full Disclosure: Long all the aforementioned securities. See a list of all my dividend growth income holdings here.
