Let’s dive right into it.
Compounding starts with reinvesting
The list below is made up of cash dividend paying stocks, companies with enough cash at hand which allows them to pay cash dividends to its investors every quarter.
The key here is to ensure that you opt in to ‘reinvest’ these cash dividends back into the asset so that your number of shares automatically compound every quarter.
On some occasions, the default setting is set to ‘cash’ instead of ‘reinvest’, which means your broker account will receive the cash dividend as a form of payment and settle in your funds like a deposit.
When you’ve built a strong retirement portfolio and you’re ready to claim the fruit of your labor many years from now, then you’ll want to begin taking that big cash.
But in the meantime, we’re focusing on setting ourselves up for that chapter in our lives so make sure you opt in to ‘reinvest’ that cash dividend.
Over time, you will see your number of shares grow fractionally and then eventually turn into whole numbers.
This process will continue repeating as you continue to fund your cash dividend stock portfolio.

Investing in other stocks that aren’t paying cash dividends could be a great way to raise capital fast.
One example is Tesla, AMC, GameStop, etc.
Retail investors who were able to jump on these stocks early were able to capitalize on massive price fluctuations.
The key here is to get in early, otherwise you may end up holding substantially large losses.
If you’re going to invest in individual companies, make sure you’ve done your due diligence and cash out when in profit.
