Directory of Companies Offering Dividend Reinvestment Plans (18th Edition). By Sumie Kinoshita. Lists 1,070 companies that offer shareholders the opportunity to reinvest their dividends. Most also allow shareholders to send in optional cash payments from as low as $10 a month to as much as $60,000 a year. The directory lays out the many features of each individual plan--whether it charges fees for purchases of shares, whether it gives you a discount on purchases, whether it allows you to buy your initial shares directly from the company without going to a broker. Also, an important aspect of buying stock is an exit strategy. The directory spells out whether the plan allows you to sell shares through the plan. Otherwise you would have to request certificates and then go to a broker to sell the shares.
Buying Stocks Without A Broker. By Charles Carlson. The penultimate guide to DRIP investing.

Buying Stocks Without a Broker lists over 1,000 DRIPs with details on each plan, as well as model DRIP portfolios and corporate profiles.
