Yeah, depends on what you want and how you want to go about it.

Me, I usually have a list of things I want to buy but don't have money for. And most often that list *doesn't* have "more of XYZ" (where XYZ is a stock I already own). Sometimes it does, but not often.

If you have a decent-sized account (5-6 digits), then every 2-3 months you've accumulated enough dividends to buy something new.

Doug Le Du (sp?) at CDx3 talks about "self-funding" dividend portfolio, when the accumulated dividends of the last few months is enough to buy another 100 shares of a dividend-paying stock.


I'm interested to see what RAD has to say.
