June 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.

Total dividends received during the month were $1,305.15, consisting of:

- $92.40 AFLAC Inc. (AFL)
- $142.56 ConocoPhillips (COP)
- $116.00 Chevron Corporation (CVX)

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $10,764.33 at the current dividend rates. This is up $221.44 from last month's $10,542.89 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns
