Wolverine, are you dripping into a mix of large and small cap stocks? Or more to the point, are you pretty conscious about following an asset allocation strategy across your portfolio? In my opinion, drippings a great way to force reinvesment and dollar-cost average. But, there's as much, maybe more, opportunity in sensible asset allocation.
I never dripped but i did use to reinvest my dividends but i stopped doing that. I didn't like reinvesting in some companies and like the freedom of collecting the money and targeting the investment to the company which i find the most intriguing at the current time.
