Hi, Juggernaut8!

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

I'm not aware of such a study, but I think it's worth mentioning that dividends are very often still reinvested in a brokerage account, albeit not right away. Since the shares are held in "streetname" and not your name, the dividends are paid to the account and become a part of the cash balance awaiting a future purchase.

Just thought I'd throw that in for consideration.

Fool on!
