Dividend Received - CVS
Received $6.50 in dividends from CVS yesterday based on the 13 shares purchased with gift funds for my son during the holiday season. A gift that keeps on giving, I suppose.
I felt a bit funny telling family members not to buy toys or other gifts for my little guy, but as a child with autism he rarely engages in imaginary play with toys, and trust me, we have plenty already. The best gift he can receive is a dividend paying stock - even a small amount of shares - because those small amounts over time will add up to a broad stream of income which will be used to help meet his needs throughout his life.
This is a position I am likely going to add to in the future.
The funds were not automatically reinvested but are accumulating in my FRIP account at Scottrade.
