Hmm, lets say you have an average dividend of 2.5%, that would mean total dividends of $350 for the year.
$7/$350 = 2% (even if you put it all into one stock)
Not worth reinvesting, just let it sit in a MMF.

If you're really concerned about the idle cash, put the two portfolios on a staggered six month rollover. (Hold each 12 months, but start one in January and another in July.) Then you could roll the cash in twice a year. (I know that the January is said to be the best starting month for FF ports, but I've never quite bought the logic.)

cheers,
GW
