    Hi Guys/Girls

    I am still pretty new to the share market and i have a question on
    dividends. So i brought 40 shares in NAB last year but being very raw i didn't understand
    what a dividend reinvestment plan was until after the ex dividend date so i ended up with the 40$ (which i will reinvest). I have since changed it so i now am FULL participation in the reinvestment plan. My question now is cause i have the 40 shares, currently NAB is at $24.62 per share, so at 40 shares would i only receive the 1 share? And what happens with the
    $15.38 that would be left over. As always all help is very much appreciated

    Correct 1 share - the left over is kept by NAB and you may have enough to get 2 shares when the left over funds are combined with the next dividend.
