I have accounts at TDWaterhouse and have enrolled all my accounts as DRiPs. This means that any stocks I hold in these accounts are automatically in the DRiP if the stock offers such a plan. So all my dividends are automatically reinvested with no effort on my part. This is not the same as adding more money to your position by buying the stocks without commissions which you can do in some cases if you own the stock in your name. However, since I don't plan on investing that way at this time the loss of this capability is not a big deal for me.
