August 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 $671.87, consisting of:

- $99.20 AbbVie Inc. (ABBV)
- $90.72 General Dynamics Corp. (GD)
- $49.41 National Retail Properties, Inc. (NNN)
- $69.09 Nucor Corporation (NUE)
- $73.71 Northwest Natural Gas Company (NWN)
- $73.45 People's United Financial Inc. (PBCT
- $115.49 The Procter & Gamble Company (PG)
- $100.80 AT&T, Inc. (T)

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $11,113.53 at the current dividend rates. This is up $242.08 from last month's $10,871.45 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

- Year-to-date: 13.0%
- Life-to-date: 16.0% (annualized)

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