<<<My understanding is that brokers only reinvest dividends if the amount is enough to buy a full share. They don't purchase fractional shares as DRiP and DSP plans do. (Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong).>>>

Waterhouse buys reinvests dividends and does so using partial shares. I have .0004 shares of Schwab in my brokerage account.
