    Not sure but I think I saw this pick on dailytraderalert. I'm probably going to pick up some shares within a few months. Should be a solid investment.

    I just read an article saying it could drop as low as 50 unless oil prices go up so im definitely gonna sit on this and wait for now

    thinking about buying into target (tgt), altria (mo), costco (cost) or exxon mobile (xom) tomorrow. if i get costco tho that will probly be the only stock i buy bc its $154/share but they are all for the low at the moment and pay quarterly dividends. Right now I only have general electric, twitter and Kingstone (insurance co) but thinking about selling them.

    I'm literally just starting (this week) and using the robinhood app and Ally invest.

    all good companies for dividend growth, try to cop your shares at low valuations.

    In my view XOM is overpriced compared to other oil and gas companies right now. That's not to say it's a bad investment, there's just other companies out there who may prove better investments over time. Also with the instability of oil prices dividends may not be reliable in the short term and in some cases the long term as well. XOM is a phenomenal company but even from a growth perspective it's gonna require favorable oil prices and large acquisitions to grow.

    If you're looking at oil and gas, consider taking a look at Chevron, Total, Imperial Oil (which is 70% owned by XOM and has very good growth prospects), PetroChina and others. Take a long look at the oil and gas companies but be very aware of the risk right now and how world-wide events may impact oil prices in the near term. Be sure to run any ideas by your investment advisor before you do anything.

    does it just get dumped into that balance without notification or update? this is what i see when i log in:
    iga0n4vuw46u.png
    hdigjrh1jbs3.png

    Now i know my holdings/dividend payout is small enough to barely notice a diff but i figure it would let me know how much regardless as i begin to grow my portfolio. And considering I use robinhood app wayyy more bc of no commission fees itll be a lot of work to have to keep up with how much i received and when.

    Ford paid on 9/1 and Target dividend payout date is 9/10 which im assuming changes to today since its a business day. Im just wondering whether or not i get specific info regarding my dividends in my portfolio or if im just totally doing something wrong altogether.

    When i click the stock it tells me dividend date and exact payout amount.

    Cant find that on the Ally broker site

    In your Ally account, all of your dividends are dispersed in cash.

    to access your dividends from a desktop/laptop (in an Ally brokerage account), sign in and go to your My Accounts page. from there, look for Activity, which should be directly under Quotes & Research.

    once you're on the Activity page, change Range to "Year To Date," and in the Show box, enter "Dividends." voila.

    when u receive Dividends, they always go straight to cash. in an Ally account, they typically show up around 4 am the day after their dispersal (for example, the dividend date is 09/13, they'll show up around 4 am on 09/14).

    if u did not purchase the shares before the Ex-dividend date, u won't receive the dividends until the following dispersal date
    (for example, if the Ex-dividend date is 09/13 and one purchases the shares anytime on 09/13 or afterward, they have to wait until the next declaration date to get dividends).

    the more companies I buy, the more dividends I get

    the more dividends I make, the more companies I can buy

    continually add capital

    at some point, there's a crossover, and your dividends alone can buy more companies. a little further and your dividend income will make enough to cover your living expenses. at that point, you're financially free. omw

    thats where im trying to get to. props

    What are y'all thoughts; DRIP or let the dividend payments just stack up on your cash balance? This was probably asked before but I'm asking again.

    I don't deal with DRIP payments, I prefer to let the dividends stack up and deploy them myself...I'll give an example.

    if u have a share that's currently at a high valuation, buying more of that stock results in less of a buffer. u wanna cop shares when the stock is undervalued, but if u use DRIP only, u have no say in the matter.

    if u deploy the dividends yourself (let them stack up, then cop shares in whatever u want, whenever u want), then u can purchase shares of ANY stock, whenever the valuation is at a good point.


    for example, let's say we're talmbout Disney (DIS). it's currently slightly undervalued, at $99.86. for the sake of the example, let's say the share price jumps tomorrow, to $130, then a day later, drops back down to $100.

    would u rather be forced to purchase shares of DIS at $130 (with DRIP), or would u rather spend your dividends when u wanted to, and just casually wait until the price went back down again (without DRIP)?

    ^^that's the simplified version, but it's really that easy...
