When retail investors discover TiiCKER, some have questions about how stock perks work. So the editorial team thought it would be worthwhile to dig into our mailbag and answer some common questions about TiiCKER. Periodically, we will answer these questions and give individual investors a few tips and tricks so they can get the most out of the platform that rewards shareholders for simply owning stock in their favorite companies.
Question: “I’m new to investing and I’m just learning about the benefits. I’m not thrilled with the performance of my portfolio, so I’m trying to squeeze every bit of value out of my investments and discovered TiiCKER. I don’t mean to be thick, but as an inexperienced investor, I’m not quite sure how TiiCKER works. Can you walk me through?” – TOM E., Wilsonville, Ore.
Answer: Tom, the world of retail investing is vast and we understand that it can take a lifetime to figure out everything there is to know about individual investing. We are happy to tell you more about TiiCKER and how you can make it work for your portfolio, even when your share prices might be floundering in this bear market.
When you get right down to it, TiiCKER is simple in just about every way. Our goal is to connect you and your portfolio to valuable stock perks you can receive from companies simply for owning shares of their stocks. You earn shareholder rewards based on the number of shares you own and the length you hold them. Shareholder perks are available for holding as little as a single share in some stocks, though the value of the reward often goes up with the number of shares own.
Still, we don’t want you to get the idea that you have to be Warren Buffett to find shareholder rewards on TiiCKER.
