April 2011 Performance Update: Pocket Change Portfolio

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 update its holdings.

Dividends Received

Total dividends received during the month were $378.71, consisting of:

The following securities were purchased during the month:

Annualized Dividend Income

Including the above purchases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $4,196.94 at the current dividend rates. This is up $232.87 from last month's 3,964.07 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

  • Month: 8.57%
  • Year-to-date: 7.90%
  • Life-to-date: 19.45% (annualized)
My PCP holdings are always available by selecting the Holdings option from the menu in the header. The next PCP update will be mid-June.

Full Disclosure: Long all the aforementioned securities. See a list of all my income holdings here.
