List of Dividend Reinvestment Plans (DRIPs)

I noticed that netstockdirect.com was purchased by ShareBuilder earlier this year and as a result there is no easy way to find a 3rd party list of DRIPs. I have started my own and will continue to update it - let me know if there are any companies in particular you would like me to add.

This list will quickly give you the basic information about each DRIP such as purchase minimums, fees, and a link to more info about the plan.
