Dividend Stock as part of Your Investment Plan

dividend-stockIn this article, i shall discuss on my favorite type of stock which is dividend stock, and why i love to have these darling in my Investment Portfolio!

Type of Stocks

I will broadly classified stocks namely as the following:

-Capital Appreciation Stock (time frame of Mild to Long term holding)

Capital appreciation (CA) is the increase in the value of an investment/trading that you make. You will get CA when you get a profit of the difference between the purchase and sale price of the stock and less of the purchase and sale commission costs.

It may required a time frame from months to years of stock holding before you gain from a decent CA. And of course, it will required some commitment from you to get the education on certain skillset, experience and monetary strength in order to pick the winning stock.

-Dividend Stock (time frame of Mild to Long term holding)

Some corporate has the history to distribute their earnings to company shareholders in the form of Dividend. It could take place as Stock or Cash distribution form (Dividend yield). And do take note, that some company distribute Dividend on a regularly basis (quarterly), while some only take place once in every two years or longer. Please do your research on their distribution interval.

On general, such stock will required from months to years holding, since investor are focused on the regular Dividend.
-Penny Stock (time frame of Short to Mild term holding)

Penny Stocks are what we label as the Small-capitalization equity shares. There are plenty different way of how investor/trader classified penny stock. Some based on their total value of stock shares market capitalization whiles other just on their per share values. For me, i just take those that being trading below twenty cents as Penny Stock.

As Penny Stock being priced extremely low, it make relatively easy for individual to purchase large quantities of shares with the aim of quick profit, during rapid price movements. As a result, it make Penny Stock extremely volatility and considered to be highly speculative type of stock.

 

3 Top Reasons why i love Dividend Stocks to be in my Investment Portfolio.

After discussing briefly on the different type of stocks out there, readers out there should have a better understanding of them. If you still get confused, do invest some time and effort to educate yourself over it. It’s what you do during your free time to make yourself more wealthier.

Dividend stock as what it name implied; to distribute in the form either Stock or Cash reward to their royal company shareholder regularly.

Dividend stock will be the perfect solution for that. Reason being that those royal company shareholder tend to be long term investors, and you can expecting much lower volatility, lower stock price swing. Besides that, they tend to be more stable than other type of stocks especially when in time of uncertainly in stock market due to their dividend nature that cushion the fall.
