Started out when Allied Signal gave their employees stock - depending on your time in, you either got shares or a check. I was jealous of those who got cold hard cash!
What the heck am I going to do with this piece of paper listing 14 shares?
Kept getting those piddley 2 or 3 dollar dividend checks for years. And then <*lightbulb*> went on - get off your duff and find out about joining the dividend reinvestment program!

Best thing I ever did!

Love to go into Quicken and see the gain on those old buys, and see the dividends just buying back into them year after year...

Loved that spreadsheet as well, just don't understand some of the headings, but I guess I have to study it more.

Drip On!
