OperaBob,

Glad to see there is someone else who has more than 4 or 5 DRIPs. I seem to have accumuated 20 DRIPs, and that is enough for me. They are well diversified, into several sectors)

Some I add to on a regular basis, but there are others that just sit there reinvesting the dividends. (There are a couple that I don't add to as the number of shares has really multiplied, due to several splits).

I thin it is a personal thing - how many can you handle without outside help? If it is too much for you, maybe you could consider selling a couple of the less attractive ones. If all seems manageable, then keep it as it is and add to the ones that seem to be the best future growth stocks.

Happy DRIPping.
