No real DRIP regrets so far, but I am annoyed that Tyco (TYC) decided to cancel their DRIP program a week after I enrolled in it.

Why limit your investment universe because they they do have an acceptable DRIP plan?

I consider Tyco when everyone was trashing it but I did not buy it (too bad). Maybe I was taken up with the bad press at the time thinking price will go down further.

With selecting investments, I could care less if they have a DRIP or not.

I think eventually I will buy more stock in Tyco the regular way--for now, I don't have a broker though. All of the investments I have are either index funds through my 401K, Roth IRA or my drips.

Getting a broker will be the next step after I have finished selecting all of my DRIP companies, which should probably take a few more months. In the meantime, my three shares of TYC are still with the transfer agent--when the time comes, I'll have them moved to my brokerage account.
