Overall, I am excited about Loyal3, and highly recommend it to anyone just starting out. If you already have a brokerage account, it might still make sense to acquire stock directly through Loyal3, assuming you find great companies available at attractive prices at that site, since there are no commissions.

This platform is very intuitive, easy to set up, and would satisfy the needs for most long-term dividend investors. If you need instant liquidity and instant gratification, plus streaming quotes and the ability to day-trade stocks, sell calls and puts on them, then this is not the platform for you. However, it is time in the market, not timing the market, that truly has determined the success of some of the most successful dividend investors of all time. Patience is a very lucrative virtue in the world of dividend investing for the long run.
