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 $1,170.44, consisting of:

- $92.40 AFLAC Inc. (AFL)
