Andy,

Thanks for asking the same question I was pondering all day. I have my first $2000 sitting in my money market waiting for my decision.

I would like to buy stock in a good company that I hope will grow in value. Watching it I anticipate selling from time to time increasing my portfolio.

What happens to the balance after that first purchase? It could be less then $100 left over. If you add that to the "kitty" for next year's $2000 addition does that mean you can buy more stock?

Thank you Andy or studentinvestor1 or anyone with a thought.
