Re: Bank with option to trade stocks?

Also, does someone have stocks in funds that pay dividends every month? The compounding is much better the more often the companies pay dividends
Let somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this statement is completely false. The best compouding is when the company pays no dividend at all, because then it is automatic. When there is a dividend, there is tax to pay, and you also have to pay to reinvest the dividend.

Are you sure you understand the concept of dividend? Dividend is money that flows out of the company and lowers its value and the share price. So yes, if a company pays a lot of dividend and you reinvest, you will have more shares of this company, but the total value will not be higher. Makes sense?
