Drip investing allows you to invest even if you do not have enough money to buy full stocks.
Drip investing involves buying very small amounts of shares at a time. This is a type of investing that is available to people who do not have enough money to buy an entire share of a company. There are two ways that you can get a drip investment, or something similar to it. The first way is to actually go through a company that is offering drip investments. This might be difficult, as not all companies actually offer drips. You can also get a pseudo-drip investment if you can find a broker who will allow you to buy parts of the shares that that broker already owns.
Drip investing stands for Dividend Reinvestment Plan investing, and it can be done by almost anyone. One thing that you should consider, however, is that you may not make a lot of money on your drip investment plan right away, due to the amount of money that you are putting out – which is usually not very much. However, one thing that is useful about a drip plan is that you’ll be able to reduce the risk that you have by paying for your shares over a long period of time.
However, there are a few things that you need to consider before you decide whether or not drip investing is actually right for you. One thing that you should consider is that these companies will always have a minimum purchase amount. This means that even though you do not have to pay for an entire share of the company, you do have to pay at least the minimum. For some companies, the minimum can be slightly difficult to come up with, but for others it can be as low as $5-$10.
There are also maximum amounts for drip investing, however, if you are planning on drip investing, you will probably not get anywhere near these per-year maximum drip amounts.
Finally, drip investing is a good long-term investment strategy, but it really will not work if you are going to be investing short-term and looking for money right away. Drip investing works best if you have a decade or more to work with – which is why you should also make sure that the company you are investing in is very well established already.
