#DRIPinvesting #InvestopediaCliffNotes So I'm actually pretty pumped about this weeks morning learning line-up and corresponding videos. Today is the popular #DRIPmethod and then Tu - #SwingTrading, Wed - #OptionsTrading, Thu - #DayTrading (not to be used on Public), and cap it off w/ Fri - #DefensiveInvestor. These posts/videos are far from being comprehensive but meant to give #NewInvestors some ideas of what styles of investing are out there. The Breakdown: - DRIP stands for Dividend Re-Investment Plan - which is where dividends are used to purchase more stock in the same company - Essentially a form of dollar cost averaging as you are reinvesting a set amount at a regular interval - How do I start DRIP investing -> look to other dividend investors like @jmag77 Where can I find out if my stock has a dividend in Public: - Click on your stock then go to "Earnings & More" then look for Dividend Rate and Yield - If you want to do DRIP investing make sure you go to 👤, then ⚙️, then scroll down to Account and click "Dividend Reinvestment," and then click Auto-reinvest my dividends What should I know about DRIP method before investing: - Dividend payouts can be reinvested as fractional shares and these fractional shares can also produce proportional dividend payouts at the next dividend payout - DRIP can add shares at a lower cost if avoiding commissions or brokerage fees for adding - Some companies will offer shares at a discount for reinvesting dividends as this way the company issues stock and raises that money back as capital What downsides do I need to know about DRIP method before investing: - Dividend income is taxable income either as Ordinary or Qualified dividends (can be avoided if kept in retirement savings account) Resources: Investopedia / Video: P.S.: So if you are lost or confused and have some questions that you want answered, feel free to comment below so that I can answer them there and maybe help me brainstorm ideas for future content ... tough keeping up w/ all this. #TheMoreYouKnow #FeedYourBrain #GrowthNotGreed #InvestingStyles
