Earning even if Stocks are down

Stock prices have been going down the past few weeks but I still earned from money from my Stocks. How is this possible?


SM Prime Holdings (SMPH) and First Philippine Holdings (FPH) had their payment date for their Cash Dividends last June 11, 2013, SMPH gave P0.27/share and FPH gave P2/share.

Since I am using COL Financial as my Stockbroker, they just credit the Cash to my COL account. As I have been saying many times, the secret of earning a lot from the Stock Market is to reinvest the earnings from a sale or from Cash Dividends, that is why instead of withdrawing the Cash Dividends that I earned, I bought shares of other stocks and since stock prices are down, I was able to buy more shares.

Know more about Ex-Date or Ex-Dividend Date

As an example, if you have 10,000 shares of FPH before the ex-date, you have earned P20,000 minus 10% withholding tax, which is P18,000. Then the P18,000 you can either buy more shares of FPH or buy other cheap stocks.
