Besides agreeing with Coolprash in comparison with the S&P, there is NO reason to worry about the price per share. If a mutual fund you contribute what you like (subject to possibly some minimums), and they compute the shares to three decimals.

If an ETF then divide what you can contribute by the share price and round. If you keep your accounts with Vanguard or Fidelity, similar ETF purchases are free. These days there's no real reason to buy an even number of shares.

As always, watch your transaction costs.
