A Dividend Reinvestment Plan, or DRIP, is an investment tool by which investors can purchase shares of stock directly from a company on a regular basis and reinvest the dividends from those shares without the use of a broker.
Reinvest Dividends: DRIPs also allow you to reinvest the dividends that you receive, from dividend-paying stocks, in additional shares of the company while avoiding many of the costly fees and commissions associated with investing.
Avoid Commissions & Investing Fees: The best DRIPs have no charges or fees associated with them. Others may charge de minimus fees for the purchase of additional shares or reinvestment of dividends. These fees generally pale in comparison to those charge by brokers.
DRIPs are ideal for investors who want to maintain control of their investment portfolios while minimizing investment fees. Investing with DRIPs is possible for as little as $10/month.
