FAQs

We have answers.

Yes. All marginable U.S. equities and selected American Depository Receipts (ADRs) priced at $4 or more that trade either on an exchange or quotes on NASDAQ are eligible for DRIP. Dividends are reinvested on your behalf on the dividend payable date by our clearing firm. The reinvested position will reflect in whole and fractional shares. The reinvestment price will be the prevailing market price at the time the order is entered on the payable date.

We can set up your entire account so that any eligible security that you currently hold will be subject to DRIP. Any eligible securities that you purchase thereafter will be automatically enrolled in DRIP. A security will need to be enrolled for DRIP prior to the ex-dividend date in order for the dividend to be reinvested.

You can also always request individual positions in your account to be enrolled for DRIP at no charge.
