There are different avenues of the investors who are involved in the stock trading. Basically there are two types of investors in the market.

Invested amount is safe and sound (not in all cases)


The amount invested in the dividend stocks normally remains the safe and sound. But it is not always with the companies. There are some companies in the market that give quarterly dividend to the shareholders and some other provide half yearly and most of the companies provide yearly dividend. By making investment in dividend stock companies, the investors get double benefits. One benefit is that some times the rate at which they purchase the stocks is raised and when they sale their shares at higher rates, they get the increased return. Second advantage is that they get the dividend declared by the companies. Thus we can say that the amount invested in stocks for dividend purposes remains safe and sound but investors should keep in their mind that this is always not with all the cases.

In this way the dividend is re-invested and in return the investor gets more shares free of cost equivalent to the amount of dividend. In this way the investor see growth in their invested capital.
