David Stanley’s Profile:

  • Retired Professor at University of Guelph Co-founder and organizer for Guelph Share Club 
  • Contributing writer for Canadian Money Saver magazine 
  • Author of articles on dividend investing 
  • Creator of Beating the TSX blue chip portfolio approach


Why you would benefit from attending:

  • Research shows over half of investment gains in equities over the long term come from dividends, rather than from price increase in stock values 
  • Eligible Canadian dividends have favourable tax treatment 
  • Dividends provide regular cash 

Why would someone be interested in DRIPs (dividend reinvestment investment plans)?

  • Dividends are automatically reinvested in additional stock shares 
  • Automatic reinvestment of dividends for more shares increases investment gains through additional compounding 
  • Delays taxes from current year in which dividends are received until stocks are sold in future, so that delayed taxes can be invested and earn additional dividends and stock price increases while stocks are held 
  • DRIPs avoid commission costs for buying additional shares
  • Small number of additional shares including partial shares can be bought with DRIPs, whereas buying them through a broker or online brokerage requires larger volumes of shares
