  1. I noticed that you pay $5 a trade. You trade weekly. You will be better off having a brokerage account with MerrillEdge or Wellsfargo where you can get ( respectively )roughly 30 trades or 8 trades a month free?

  2. Yes, I use $5 as value. Sure there are so many cheaper brokers out there but you can also make trades for $20 if you got a bad one. And if you have a cheap broker, they charge you with high services costs.

    If you use Interactive Brokers, you only pay $1 per trade.

    I believe that if you hold a $1,000 - $2,000 stake, $5 doesn't matter. That's 0.5%. The daily fluctations are much higher and your next quarter dividend is over $5.

    But you have right, If you find a cheaper broker you should use him.

    Dividend stocks are an investor’s best friend on several fronts. Some look at dividends as a way of measuring a company’s financial stability. Some love dividends because they provide a stable source of income, which can be reinvested or simply used throughout retirement. And some investors gun after the highest-yielding dividend stocks they can find — even if their payouts aren’t so steady — in hopes of maximizing their returns.
