After doing his due diligence about a particular stock and support from an expert, he bought it for N2. Within four months, the price jumped to N5 as the company announced a good financial report for the year with dividend and new products released to the market that yielded great sales.Mark sold half of his shares to buy the new phone without stress and financial worries and still have left over and steady dividend to collect.
