I have never, never seen share increases in any 401k as result of dividends or capital gains distributions.
ie Not in the same way I see them in mutual fund accounts.
The above post is an attempt to try to understand what is happening to the compounding effect of dividend reinvesting with in 401ks.
My fear is that there is not any. But I have benn called paranoid and st... for asking such a question. And I continue to ask.
