$1.65 on a $50 investment is 3.3%. I think that is a bit high. Although it is difficult to get that % with that small on an investment in an individual stock. For a DRIP I think it is high since the purpose of a DRIP for the company is to offer the stock cheaply to broaden the shareholder base and limit the stock's exposure to the influence of traders; among other benefits . At 3.3% someone with $50 a month and an IRA may find an index fund a better deal.
