    Dave (00:33):











    All right, folks, welcome to Investing for Beginners podcast tonight. Andrew and I are going to read a great list of questions we’ve gotten recently. So I’m going to go ahead and turn it over to my friend, Andrew. And he’s going to read the first question to us.











    Andrew (00:46):











    Yeah. Thanks, Dave. So this first question comes from John King. He says, hi, Dave, I love the podcast. And I’ve been binge-listening to all of them this past month. I have a question about dollar-cost averaging over a very long timeframe. About a year ago, I researched and bought about ten dividend-paying stocks. I have been dripping into each position I own is small and only has about five shares of each. I run a vegetable farm, and with that family and other expenses, I never have large sums of money to put into stocks. I’ve heard you guys talk about dollar-cost averaging over one year. Would it be okay to add monthly to stock over 30 years as long as the company is in good shape? Keep up the great work. Thanks.











    Dave (01:31):











    Well, in a word. Yes. So I guess that is the easy answer. So let’s dive into this just a little bit. First of all, Don, thank you for reaching out and kudos to you to stay taking this step and diving in and embracing this with both arms.

    Dave (00:33):











    All right, Folks, welcome to the Investing for Beginners podcast. Tonight, we have episode 192; we’re going to go back to our listener questions and read a few great ones that we got recently and do our little give and take and answer them. So I’m going to go ahead and read the first question. It’s a bit long, but there are some important parts here. So bear with me for a moment. So I have; Hi Andrew, I’m a new avid listener and a fan of your podcast because investing just seems smart. And I want to know everything. I’m in my early twenties and want to start that slow growth drip style. However, this sparked a conversation between my boyfriend and I seeing as, as the stock market is about to crash and inflation is soaring. He thinks it would be incredibly dumb to begin now because I wouldn’t put in enough initially to survive the crash with my means; I would be looking at investing between 50 to $150 a month.











    Dave (01:26):











    So my question for you is what would happen if I had $150 worth of a stock that went to zero and below, would it ever come back when the market slowly returns, or would that money be wasted? You’ve always mentioned that the stock market always returned stronger and that even people who invest in bad times come out ahead, do the froth in the market, but my boyfriend. So that’s only if enough is invested and not to lose the stock entirely. Do you think it is wise or stupid to begin investing now in the current economic state for slightly m...

    Dave (00:32):











    All right, folks. Welcome to Investing for Beginners podcast. Tonight. We have episode 190 tonight. Andrew and I will read some great listener questions and do our little give and take and answer those for you guys on the air. So I’m going to go ahead and read to the first question I have. This is from Eric says hi, Andrew, Dave, first and foremost. Thank you both so much for this podcast. Since July last year, I have been avidly listening, and I’ve learned so much from you both. I now have my Roth IRA with my dividend stock stripping, and we’ll have the growth I’m seeing. They came across an ETF that targets value stocks with high dividend yields in the S and P 500 SPDV is the ticker, while there was no option to reinvest the dividends into the ETF. And I instead have taken the payouts as cash in my Roth.











    Dave (01:20):











    It looks like it could provide additional tax-free cashflow without counting towards the annual contribution cap. But the question is, should I try and build up several shares of the ETF and my RA to achieve a decent monthly cashflow to then buy more of my handpick dividend stocks each month for free air quotes? Or would it be better to invest in the dividend stocks, to begin with? I’m not sure what the trade-off here is and would appreciate any thoughts you guys might have. Thank you in advance, Eric. Andrew, what are your questions? Eric’s great question.

    All right, folks, we’ll welcome Investing for Beginners podcast. Tonight is episode 189 tonight. Andrew and I will read through some great listener questions and do a little give and take and answer some of those. So without any further ado, I will go ahead and read the first question, and then Andrew will go ahead and give us a great answer. Like he always does. So the first question I have is Andrew. I am also an absolute beginner and recent subscriber to the newsletter. Appreciate this post and your podcast. I’ve listened to 40 episodes in the last two weeks, and I plan to keep going until I’m all caught up. I’ve been working from the beginning and the most recent episodes; what’s the difference between opening an individual account with Stash or some other app versus a brokerage account with fidelity Charles Schwab, et cetera, I’m currently paying $1 per month in fees to stash. It seems like a no-brainer to continue, especially since it has drip options, but I’m sure I’m missing something. Thanks, JJ. Andrew, what are your thoughts on JJ is a great question.











    Andrew (01:36):











    It’s an excellent question, and something that, you know, these details are very small, particularly when you’re comparing, you know, what’s the difference between this app and that app, you know, and fidelity has an app. Schwab has an app. Stash has an app. Robinhood has an app. Like it all sounds like it’s all the same thing, but you want to do a little bit of research and understand they’re not all the sa...
