This is called "dollar cost averaging," and you can get into quite a war over whether it's good or bad. I don't do it, as I tend to save up my cash in big chewy chunks and then make some big buy, but I can't say I've beaten the market by doing this -- but neither will "dollar cost averaging" or any other gimmick.
