).  But recently I’ve be rethinking some of my DRIP strategy.  In the past I’ve been 100% reinvested, but the recent economic environment has me getting more proactive and critical of full reinvestment as a strategy.  Here’s why. 100% reinvestment works best in a strong earnings growth environment .  We are not in that environment right now, not even in Canada.  When companies grow their earnings and want to keep the same payout ratio, they will increase their dividends and will not need to issue more shares.  Hence your growing dividends will eventually be able to buy more shares than they were previously.  ...
model describes how prices vary as a result of a balance between product availability at each price (supply) and the desires of those with purchasing power at each price (demand). The graph depicts a right-shift in demand from D 1 to D 2 along with the consequent increase in price and quantity required to reach a new market-clearing equilibrium point on the supply curve (S). Microeconomics (from Greek prefix micro- meaning "small" + "economics") is a branch of economics that studies how the individual parts of the economy, the household and the firms, make decisions to allocate limited resources, typically in ...
dollar-cost averaging or pound-cost averaging
I was going to write about Dollar-Cost Averaging (DCA) as an investment method in preparation to a post about DRIPs (Dividend Re-Investment Program). But first I was going to find some good sources for information about it.As it is impossible to predict how the market is going to perform, DCA is supposed to be a method that lowers the average cost of the shares you buy by regularly buying shares whatever the price of the shares as opposed to buying shares for a lump sum. With DCA, you regularly invest for a fixed amount of money. If the price of a share goes up, your fixed amount buys fewer shares; if the price goes down your ... market research, surveys and trends
Cyprus Golf Property
Cyprus golf property is possibly by far and away the best investment you could make if you are in fact considering purchasing property on this beautiful Island.

Whether you are looking to purchase for your own use or the fast expanding holiday rental market the sums will stack up every time.

Looking to Invest Your Social Security Check? Consider These Factors
For many seniors, monthly Social Security checks are a safety net used to cover immediate costs. But for those who have the luxury of being able to grow their portfolios, these payments can represent a regular source of investable income. "On the assumption that they don't need the money now, odds are good that they won't need the money for a while. And that argues that they can invest the money with the long term in mind," says Ric Edelman, a Virginia-based financial advisor and best-selling author.

Dollar Weathers Mixed NFP Release with Low Liquidity, Ends the Week at a ...
Following Thursday’s sharp decline for the US dollar (the biggest single-day decline for the Dollar Index since May 8th of last year), currency traders were torn with what to expect for Friday’s session. Momentum would have been theoretically easy to maintain given the 85.20 break from the Index and rally above 1.25 for EURUSD. On the other hand, we also had the draw of an extended holiday weekend for the United States. And, though the official market holiday extended to Monday rather than starting off the weekend, early onset sedation is nonetheless a common scenario in these specific circumstances. The deciding ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How do you optimize purchasing frequency when dollar cost ...
Is there a formula for this? Should I buy once a month, once a quarter, every time I save up $XXXX dollars, or is there some other method of optimal purchasing frequency? As mentioned above, it is criticized, and I agree broadly with the criticism. The problem is that frequency is irrelevant in all respects to return, ex ante. Now after the fact, if you could have known the future, that is different. If you plan to save a fixed amount of money, say $1000 increments, then simply make purchases equal to the amount of time that it takes to get $1000. You could also do $100 increments in many funds, although if there is a fee or ...

This is the price that you receive per unit of sales. Take into account sales discounts and special offers. Get this number from your Sales Forecast. For non-unit based businesses, make the per-unit revenue $1 and enter your costs as a percent of a dollar. The most common questions about this input relate to averaging many different products into a single estimate. The analysis requires a single number, and if you build your Sales Forecast first, then you will have this number. You are not alone in this, the vast majority of businesses sell more than one item, and have to average for their Break-even Analysis. Average per-unit cost:
