OTV,

One more comment. You opened this post with some tax commentary. Dividend reinvestment does not typically relieve a tax obligation. I don't know why you pay 25% tax on every dividend (ex-US?, foreign national?) but if there is a reason you should inform your broker (or a company if setting up direct ownership) of your full status. It could limit what you are able to do.
