How much does the quarterly dividend reinvestment in a DRiP boost your yield? Has there ever been a historical study done on what your yield would have been in a DRiP v. a brokerage account(in which you reinvest dividends annually or semiannually depending on when it makes sense because of commissions)? I'm particularly interested in how this relates to the Baby Bell stocks. Thanks.
