Not a dividend trading strategy but a question.

If you decide to take your Div as a DRP do you still get the benefits of any franking credits that are attached to the dividend if it was taken as a normal dividend payment?

Thanks

G'day all,
It is time to start trading the dividend stocks if you have not already started.

GUD is first cab off the rank for me this season. Goes ex-div 17/2/2011. I bought yesterday.

cheers.

Depends if you're using cash or accrual accounting. At its simplest it's the year paid if cash, the year it's earned if accrual. If, for example, whoever pays you uses a trust or stapled security structure you might have to use both.

I am getting old and forget things.
when a dividend 'EX' date is reached say June 20th and the payment is July 4th....what financial year should the dividend be declared?

A quick reminder would be welcomed.
thanks

Merc

It's not practical to follow too much of the market, you could arguably induce an unacceptable level of portfolio risk in doing so. There's really not a great need to venture out of the ASX100 or 200 if you are simply asset collecting, and even then you could hive out particular sectors.

Basic pattern recognition, a quick squiz at some moving averages or other indicators and working on some volume stuff.

I still like doing some top down and going from there. I accept that I can't possibly follow the whole market so I bludge off others here at SS, from some friends research, my FSB's personal research and a bit of newspaper reading for ideas.

Some of us have very different perceptions of risk and concerns with the consequences, personally the risk of investing is outweighed by the risk of not doing so.

Thanks Balance,

I've been a member here for +/- 3 and twas Rozella that introduced me to the dividend stripping concept originally.

My wife is getting jack of work, who could blame her, and I am thinking of educating her in what to look for and how to trade and starting her off with a relatively small kitty to get the hang of it, take the profits in stock until the dividends will replace her income at which point she can stop work. In the meantime I can continue with my work, which fortunately I really enjoy, and continue to build my current portfolio per existing plan.

I generally just accumulate and am not particularly concerned with volatility, I do in fact like it as my regular investment buys more for my money, hence my limited knowledge of the 45 day rule.

I was saddened to hear of Rozella's departure as I always enjoyed his posts and insight. I guess I should archive his posts.

How rudimentary are we talking Wolverine, fundamental analysis sits fine with me, but I wouldn't know a double top from a muffin top and candles are those things you burn right?
