keeping in mind the possible entertainment value... this is JUST ME, and Serious Heresy, but -- it struck me that $2000/yr is just **ssing away money, i know i fritter away that much every year, so why not Gamble that much every year? so i put all $2000 last year into one stock, and put another $2k this year into the same stock. if the pile ever gets real big, i might diversify into anther stock)(IF you do this, pick something that will be fun to watch -- a ccmpany you care about, or LOVE their products, or, is likely to be a roller-coaster)good luck,jp Isn't part of being Foolish having fun? I am actually considering putting 10% of my 403b into a Pacific Rim fund and I have a DRIP in Intel, partly for their entertainment value.The only problem with this approach is that for many people $2000/year isn't that easy to come up with, especially for people on lower incomes or who are highly in debt. If you think $2000/year is no big, then go for it and have fun! But such a strategy for people who will seriously depend on that money for retirement and/or have difficulty raising an extra 2k per year, "entertainment" should rank low on their priorities for investment.Taylor
