Dividend reinvestments

by Scott Ryburn, CTO, Sharesight | Feb 17th 2010
Note: There is a newer version of this article: How to track a dividend reinvestment plan

We have added a dividend reinvestment function to simplify the process of recording dividend reinvestments within Sharesight. The dividend reinvestment function can be enabled by clicking on the on/off toggle link under options in the share detail page sidebar.

The dividend reinvestment is enabled individually for each share holding. To record a dividend reinvestment, simply click on the dividend that is to be reinvested and then click the ‘Dividend Reinvested’ tick box. Record the date, quantity, and price of the new shares obtained.

Please see the dividend reinvestments help documentation for more detail on the new dividend reinvestment function.
