<<If you recall the original query, the writer was asking which is better, DRIP or IRA. Tell me what the investment is in either, and perhaps returns can be estimated and a comparison made. Absent that, the question is unanswerable>>

I'll try to give some specifics but it still might be a little vague because I'm an IRA greenhorn. What if I were to Drip $50 a month into Campbell's and $50 a month into Johnson and Johnson vs. $100 a month into a high risk IRA since I have a good 35 years until retirement. If this example is still incomprehensible could you give an example of where a DRIP might be more beneficial and one where an IRA would be the better choice. Thanks.
