written by reader What do you do with those small amounts left in various investment accounts.

By Marty, March 9, 2018

What do you do with those small amounts in your various investment accounts? Between IRA’s, Roth’s, SEP’s etc, I have a number of accounts, each with ’leftover’ money of between $20 and $300. What do you all do with that? Let it sit, or are you ever tempted to find a penny stock and ”play” (gamble). For the most part, I am a buy and hold investor, so there is little churn in any of those accounts; no real reason to wait, and more of a chance that money will sit for years. Dividends in those accounts are DRIP, so those small amounts won’t soon be joined by other small amounts.

Fighting the urge to play in cheap $1 stocks, but am I wrong? Should I treat it like vegas and risk a few hundred dollars?
Any suggestions for cheap stocks?
