My strategy with Robinhood App is to buy dividend stocks. I am considering "dividend capture", which is buying the dividend stock before the ex-dividend date and selling the stock on or after the ex-dividend date. This "captures" the dividend. I have been enjoying buying these stocks and not monitoring them every day. Doing dividend capture will add monitoring, but not too much. The biggest thing will be to make sure I don't sell the stock for less than the dividend amount.
Looking at the GIS website, they have information on their sustainability efforts. They have goals to reduce green house gas emissions (GHG), fuel usage, water usage, energy usage, and more. From their charts, it appears they are making improvements in these categories. I'm not an expert in analyzing sustainability efforts, but the fact that GIS is aware of and tracking these efforts, that works for me to invest in them right now. I will work on improving my understanding of company's sustainability reports.
