LEARN THE RULE OF 72

This rule determines the number of years it will take for your investment double in value.

http://www.ruleof72.net/rule-of-72-learn.asp

Calculator for the rule of 72

http://www.moneychimp.com/features/rule72.htm

 

 

TIPS FOR FIRST TIME INVESTORS
 
Read the Prospectus
  • To learn the amount of money needed for an initial investment.
  • To learn the minimum and maximum amounts of money you can investment when making optional payments in the future.
  • To learn the date the company will purchase the shares of stock for your account.
  • To learn the date the company must receive your money in order to purchase the shares for your account.  Usually companies must recieve the money five days before the purchase day.
  • To learn when the shares must be purchased in order for you to receive a dividend. 
  • To learn how you can sell your shares back to the company if you choose to do so in the future.
  • To learn when the company dividends are paid.

* Some companies use your phone number to determine your address.  If you order enrollment forms by phone, the company may mail the forms to the person who has that phone number.   Example if a wife requests the forms and the phone number is listed in the husband's name, the forms will be mailed to the husband. 

*When buying stocks online be prepared to have the money for the purchase withdrawn directly from your bank account. You will need the name of your bank, your account number, and the bank routing number (found on the bottom of your checks).
