Thanks for the note. The CK Approach is indeed a continuation/extension of the section on Obviously Great Investments in "You Have More Than You Think." In fact, the section in the book is really an extension of the work done on the first two groupings of stocks ("Simpleton" and "MoneyHeavy") which are viewable in our 11 Steps to Cash-King Investing. For anyone who hasn't worked their way through the steps, check them out at

I think a DRIP program makes a lot of sense for CK investors, although some of our companies don't offer DRIP plans (Microsoft and Gap, for example). The only strike I have against DRIPs is that they're a bit of an administrative burden. With discount brokers trending down toward $5 per trade, I'm wondering if going that route isn't more convenient. That said, if you have a DRIP plan in place, I think using the CK model to further it makes a good deal of sense.

Fool on, Fool!
