    My IRA account just received the transferred check from TSP and I was able to place some stocks purchased today. I will complete my buy list in the next few days. After that I will sit back to watch this portfolio to grow and collect dividends at the same time. The whole process of transferring from TSP to IRA account took about 3 weeks and I am glad that I don't need to wait that long.

    I personally own KO and believe now is a great time to buy. It made a new 52-week high recently, currently in an attractive dip, low volatility, doesn't move with all the political/world news very much.

    EDIT: KO is also posting earning next week which should give it a nice boost!

    KO definitely is on my buy list and its continued growth of dividend is very attractive. Berkshire Hathaway owns 8.7% of the stock with 200 million shares. Can't go wrong with it.

    At least you didn't have to wait another 3 days for your brokerage to make sure the TSP check was good. My funds are unavailabe for trading for at least 3 days unless I speak to a "live" person to place the trade.

    Can someone give me an idea of how much we are talking about when we talk about "dividends"? I am interested in this subject but according to my own understanding dividends are usually very low maybe tens of dollars or less for a few thousand dollars worth of shares. Say I pick 5 dividend paying stocks and buy 5k$ worth of each for a total of 25k$ portfolio to start off, what would each dividend payment on each individual stock look like. I'm just curious because I really am thinking about doing this soon.
    Just a lil o'l fishegg floatin around in this big ocean!

    The first 20 trades in a year are $7, doesn't matter if online or "live" person. After 20 trades even online it's something like $30. For much larger accounts, the cost goes down.

    Fish, Every stock is different. Some pay no dividends, some pay low yields, some pay higher. No guarantees they will continue paying what they have in the past. Generally, the higher the yields the higher the risk. Suggest doing a little research. Advisers such as the Motley Fool usually will list their top ten dividend paying stocks. Utility stocks such as Southern Company, etc. usually pay in the 4-5% range and are fairly consistent in good times and bad. Probably wouldn't want to put all your eggs in one industry basket. When you get more comfortable with your investing you may want to look at REITS such as Annaly Cap. (NLY) which is paying around 15% right now but is a higher risk investment because it is very interest sensitive. Also, a lot of dividend paying companies have dividend reinvestment plans which purchase additional shares at no or very low fees. Good Investing!

    Fish,

    The key point for dividend play is to reinvest the dividend back into the same stock every time it pays dividend. There is no commission for dividend stock purchase for most participating brokerage firms. You will see the difference down the road even when you start out small. I believe this is how it works for Birchtree's oceanic account. Scout gave you a very good link related to this area.

    Mista,

    I have Schwab and commission is $8.95 per trade and they have Schwab bank for fee checking and free (rebate) ATM withdrawal from any bank. I'm pretty happy with their service.

    I just finished buying all the stocks from my buy list for my IRA account. Here are 12 positions out of the 32 stocks in my portfolio:

    ABT, AGG, COP, CVX, ED, IEF, JNJ, KO, MCD, MO, MSFT, and NLY. The entire portfolio will generate combined returns of about 4.5% annually and all dividends will be reinvested.

    Also, I will write some call options to generate extra income from stocks such as MSFT. One good thing about MSFT is that it has weekly options so I can keep writing out-of-money (OTM) calls every week if it falls in the right price range. If MSFT drops below my purchase price, I just sit there and collect my 3% dividend annually.

    BTW, I just requested Schwab to activate my option feature for my IRA account and I hope it works as planned.

    I have avoided options in my IRA, but I wish they would allow margin in IRA's, just so we could short stocks. I don't know if this is a NASD thing or if it's just Scottrade that doesn't allow it.

    Good luck!
