This lesson is meant to teach financial literacy to students by showing how stock dividends and dividend reinvestment plans (DRIPs) work. It reviews the basic metrics that are relevant to picking a stock that is suitable for long-term DRIPing, and illustrates how these stocks grow over time - even when there is an unexpected event that hurts a company’s valuation.
This product comes with a PowerPoint slide deck that explains the meaning of key stock and DRIP related metrics, an activity that has students determine how their stock will grow over time, and a DRIP calculator (provided in Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets) for students to use during their classwork.
How does the calculator work? I talk about it in this video.
