Personally I have only used it for buying some  ETFs like the NZX top 50 , and drip feeding money in weekly into that, and just accumulating them,  and plan to be in them long term. Haven't looked into individual shares.

I'm part of smart shares regular saving option.

Pay set amounts once per month and that used to buy units in 5 ETFs.

All dividend are paid in more units rather than money so bit like compounding interest except share units.

Bought some shares last week in Blackwell Global Holdings at 00.38c. Today there were trading at 00.70c a share. Of course I wished i bought more then.



I see that five days after they hit $0.91 they plunged down to $0.20. Hope you sold them while they were up!

Have had an open account for a few months now and never really got active with it until recently.


In much the same boat as OP, still getting used to operation and what things are.  Liking it so far.

I too have recently started. I put the money I got back from cashing in my bonus bonds into Sharesies and bought Smartshares NZ Top 50 Fund, Briscoes and Chorus. Liking it so far, it seems really easy to use, haven't got around to auto-investing but I'm thinking of setting it up to put in $10 a week or something like that.
