Dividend reinvestment plan (DRIP)


Recommended Posts

Guest Invis

Hello IG Community,

Can anyone advise - is it possible to set up automatic divided reinvestment on normal share dealing accounts and stocks and shares ISAs on IG and if so how would I do this?

Thanks for your help!

I would like IG to have dividends dripping program? Is that possible? 

I am am a long term accumulation investor. My portfolio is in millions. My Portfolio IG is only 3.5% of overall. The primary reason is the lack of DRIP. I don't care if they do or don't, other than I hate waste and commercial stupidity, obviously many do want it. In the meantime just Invest in II, or Halifax, it's included and cheap.

I agree with all the above sentiments.  I've used several brokers before, such as ii, Halifax, etc. I assumed ALL online brokers and investment platforms included automated DRIP.  Shocked that IG do not!  Even more surprised at their complacency in not responding to this thread.

Hi there,

Please could you explain why dividend reinvestment is not offered, and why there has been no update since the admin post on 20 Nov 2019.

I'd like an update on this too. I'm going to have to move my shares to another broker specifically for this reason.

DRP should be made available on priority as it’s such a basic feature. IG would risk losing customers if this doesn’t happen at the earliest !

It is funny that the IG website gives a definition about DRIP but does not offer it at the moment 
https://www.ig.com/uk/investments/support/glossary-investment-terms/dividend-reinvestment-definition

I like the platform but was surprised to see there was no option to reinvest Dividends after I signed up. Also would have thought since Jan 25th they may have been able to have come up with a solution by now.

Hi @Rawly,

IG is aware that it is an option that clients would like to see. I will forward your feedback to the relevant department to be reviewed.

Thank you - Arvin

Dear IG, 

Has there been any progress on providing a DRIP feature? 

This has been waiting an exceptionally long time, can we please recieve an ETA or a confirmation that the feature will not be provided. The current lack of response is leaving people in a constant state of limbo. This will trigger people to move to alternative providers due to lack of transparency.

Regards 

Pearse

How on earth is this still under review after almost 3 years?!

IG - please either give a proper update with an expected timeline for when this feature will be offered, or be honest and say that nothing is forthcoming.

Thanks

Hi @pmcguinness07 @Lambchops,

Unfortunately at this point in time there is no ETA for DRIP to be available on the platform. As mentioned IG is aware that it is a feature that some clients would like to see but there is no ETA.

All the best - Arvin

    • Q2 Netflix earnings preview and share price analysis.   Source: Adobe images   Shares Netflix Revenue Income Streaming media Stock market   Written by: Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Market Analyst, London   Publication date: Wednesday 10 July 2024 17:06 Netflix's second-quarter 2024 earnings preview: the fight to stay on top As Netflix gets ready to announce its earnings for the second quarter (Q2) of 2024, investors want to know if the popular streaming service can keep attracting lots of new subscribers, make the most of its ad-supported plans, and remain the top streaming platform. When will Netflix share its latest earnings information? Netflix will reveal its April through June 2024 financial results after the stock market closes on Thursday, 18 July 2024. Another Netflix revenue increase seems to be on the cards Netflix expects its revenue to increase 16% year-over-year (YoY) to $9.49 billion in the second quarter of 2024 but analysts predict Netflix's Q2 revenue will be slightly higher at $9.53 billion. In the first quarter of 2024, Netflix's revenue was $9.37 billion, up 15% from the prior year. Earnings are also expected to rise Regarding earnings, Netflix forecasts net income of $2.06 billion, or $4.68 per share, for the second quarter of 2024 whereas analysts estimate Netflix's Q2 earnings per share will reach $4.74. For comparison, in Q2 2023, Netflix reported a net income of $1.48 billion, or $3.29 per share. Netflix's net income in quarter 1 (Q1) 2024 was $2.3 billion, or $5.28 per share. Further revenue growth in the pipeline YoY Netflix expects 21% FX-neutral revenue growth in Q2. Paid net additions are likely to be lower in Q2 than Q1 due to seasonal trends but global average revenue per membership is predicted to increase YoY in Q2 (on an FX-neutral basis). In Q1 2024, Netflix added 9.3 million net subscribers, grew global paid memberships 16% YoY to 269.6 million, and increased average revenue per membership 1% YoY (or 4% on an FX-neutral basis). Engagement remained solid despite changes like paid sharing. Netflix sales revenue chart   Source: TradingEconomics For Q2 2024, Netflix forecasts $2.52 billion in operating income and 26.6% operating margin, versus $1.82 billion and 22.3% in Q2 2023. This compares to Q1 2024 operating income of $2.63 billion and operating margin of 28.1%. LSEG Data & Analytics analyst Netflix recommendations LSEG Data & Analytics data shows a consensus analyst rating of ‘buy’ for Netflix – 11 strong buy, 18 buy, 16 hold and 1 sell (as of 10 July 2024).   Source: Refinitiv Netflix – technical view The Netflix share price, up over 45% year-to-date, is approaching its November 2021 record high at $700.99 which, since it was made near the major psychological $700 mark, probably won’t be easily overcome. Netflix monthly chart   Source: TradingView.com A rise above the $700.99 all-time high would allow for the $750 region to be in focus, though. On the daily chart, the Netflix share price has been range bound since late June but last week did rise to its current July high at $697.49, close to the $700.99 record peak. The upside is being supported by the May-to-July uptrend line at $678.42 below which good support can be spotted between the May high and the late June and early July lows at $633.78 to $662.30. While this area underpins, the short-term uptrend will remain valid. Netflix daily chart   Source: TradingView.com For a medium-term top to be formed, the Netflix share price would have to fall through its $626.44 June low. Slightly above this level, the April high at $639.00 would be expected to offer support in such a scenario.
