I'm kind of new at this DRP thing, but I'm in the process of setting one up for myself, and everything I've read about them (both here and on www.moneypaper.com) seem to confirm what you're saying. As your dividends go toward buying more shares, instead of sitting as mere cash, you have the potential to realize a greater gain. If you find a study or analysis that demonstrates the compounding effect, please let us know about it. Thanks,
