So the Fool's Mr. Zimmerman thinks I'm wrong in dollar cost averaging this ETF, am I alone in doing this? I use Sharebuilder so that costs me $4/month on a $100 investment. How would I be better off doing the same thing with a regular stock?

My personal opinion would be that you're not wrong in doing it. I plan on doing it too. But, I think you should accumulate more $ before making a buy. $4 on $100 is 4%.... That's way too high for me. I prefer to keep at 1% or lower. I plan on saving up $1000 in ING before transferring it to SB and making the DVY purchases.

Regards,
Mike

I don't know why anyone would think it is a problem. Same as DCA for a mutual fund. Watch the fees at Sharebuilder, though. I agree with the previous post. 4% on 100 is a bit steep.

I agree. I actually fled away from Sharebuilder because of the fees.
Do you realize that it cost $15 to sell? I had about 40 stocks/ETFs, and it was better to movet the account rather then seel three of them.

What other broker lets you easily reinvest dividends, even with partial shares?

Charles Schwab and Fidelity have no brokerage fees for DRIPing ETFs.
