Don't get me wrong, the power of compounded reinvested dividends is great. Jeff provided some numbers to support this using Coke as an example a while back. I'll try to dig those up.

My point, I guess, is that dividends in a cash account will usually get into the market before too long (may be weeks or months or maybe longer), and excluding those from a comparison wouldn't be totally fair.

Foolishly, Vince
