Investment Series: DRIP (Dividend ReInvestment Plan): A Path to Compounding Returns (VIDEO)

"Compounding ... is the most powerful force in the universe"

This video is part of a series. The introduction to this series, can be found by clicking here.

After that introduction, I discussed the fact that Buy and Hold is not dead.

Within this "Investing Playlist", I then discussed the fact that the kernel, the root of my investing approach, is that of the "Dogs of the DOW" approach. Modified of course. We then discussed what I see as the true difference between investing and trading.

I then discussed the importance of dividends, and then I discussed what I look for when it comes to dividends.

Now, let's talk about one of the tools of dividend stocks. DRIP.

Here is the link to the example I mentioned of the $300 investment in GIS.

We'll next talk about different factors to consider when it comes to making your actual purchase, the timing of your purchase, with a discussion regarding seasonality.
