November 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 $588.24. This is an increase of $82.45 from the $505.79 received in November 2012. Below are the PCP dividends received over the last 13 months:

- Nov 2013 $588.24
- Oct 2013 $901.87
- Sep 2013 $1,170.44

- Jan 2013 $338.67

Annualized Dividend Income

Including new purchases and dividend increases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $11,912.85 at the current dividend rates. This is up $122.20 from last month's $11,790.65 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

- Year-to-date: 25.4%
- Life-to-date: 19.1% (annualized)

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

  1. Wow, over $ 10,000 in dividends!
    Some people in Germany (for example hairdressers) earn this amount (after tax) per year - and have to work hard eight hours a day!

    The gap between rich and poor is getting bigger and bigger.
    But I would rather be "rich" - and therefore I´ll do everything for that.

    My dividend income for 2013 are about 1000 EUR.
    But I´ll work hard, to increase this amount year by year!


    1. DS,

      Even more impressive is that these are figures from D4L's "pocket change portfolio. His total portfolio dividends are several times the amount you see here.



  2. Impressive! You're so close to the milestone of earning $1,000 per month, on average, in dividend income. Congratulations! (My goal is to reach $400 per month at the end of 2014).

  3. Very impressive. Congrats on all the passive income
