Dividend Reinvestment Plan

DRIP. An investment plan offered by some corporations enabling shareholders to automatically reinvest 

Cash

 dividends and 

Capital

 gains distributions, thereby accumulating more stock without paying 

Brokerage

 commissions. Many DRIPs also allow the investment of additional 

Cash

 from the shareholder, known as an optional 

Cash

 purchase. Unlike with a Direct Stock 

Purchase

 Plan, with a 

DRIP

 the investor must 

Purchase

 the first 

Share

 in the company through a brokerage. After that, the company will take whatever dividends it would normally send as a 

Check

 and instead it will reinvest them to 

Purchase

 more shares in the company for you, all without charging a commission. The only 

Drawback

 is that the investor has no control over when his/her 

Money

 from the dividends is used to 

Purchase

 new stock in the company, which means he/she might be buying new shares at sub-optimal times. also called Dividend Reinvestment
