March 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 $847.57, consisting of:

- $ 73.50 AFLAC Inc. (AFL)
- $114.84 ConocoPhillips (COP)
- $104.40 Chevron Corporation (CVX)
- $ 15.99 Consolidated Edison Inc. (ED)
- $ 85.28 Emerson Electric Co. (EMR)
- $207.90 Intel Corporation (INTC)
- $ 75.64 Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)
- $100.10 McDonald's Corp. (MCD)
- $ 23.92 Microsoft Corporation (MSFT)
- $ 46.00 Norfolk Southern Corp. (NSC)

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $9,929.36 at the current dividend rates. This is up $149.64 from last month's $9,779.72 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

- Year-to-date: 12.3%
- Life-to-date: 18.5% (annualized)

That's it for this month. The next PCP report will be mid-to-late May. Thanks for for reading!
