June 2011 Pocket Change Portfolio Performance Update

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 $536.14, consisting of:

- $44.94 Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC)

- $44.88 ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP)

- $49.64 Wal-Mart Stores Inc. (NYSE:WMT)

- $18.85 Emerson Electric Co. (NYSE:EMR)

The following securities were purchased during the month:

- 78 Shares Cincinnati Financial Corp. (CINF) providing $124.80 in annual dividend income

- 32 Shares ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) providing $84.48 in annual dividend income

- 46 Shares Genuine Parts Company (GPC) providing $82.80 in annual dividend income

Annualized Dividend Income

Including the above purchases, my annual PCP dividend income is now $4,720.41 at the current dividend rates. This is up $316.68 from last month's $4,403.73 amount. The PCP has never experienced a monthly decline in annualized dividend income.

Portfolio Returns

- Month: (-1.31%)

- Year-to-date: 6.18%

- Life-to-date: 15.09% (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-August.

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