I am fairly new to investing, and have cautiously started by DRiPing a few stocks. I, as a DRiPer, of course like dividends very much, but if I am reinvesting them into more stock, and the market tanks, won't the value of my dividends be the same as my stock? Or, even less, because I had to pay taxes on the dividends, right? Anyone care to check my thinking on this?
Or, do you guys think that it would be better to receive the dividends as cash, and just keep adding to the position every month in the form of OCP's?
