October 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 $901.87, consisting of:

- $23.49 Automatic Data Processing, Inc. (ADP)
- $90.72 Cincinnati Financial Corp. (CINF)
- $195.84 Community Trust Bancorp Inc. (CTBI)

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $11,790.65 at the current dividend rates. This is up $253.37 from last month's $11,537.28 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

- Year-to-date: 23.5%

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