I'm having problems putting my finger on a satisfactory explaination for this . . . I'm looking for someone to substantiate what I am about to say or for someone to tell me why I'm wrong.

Basically, it does not seem like a good idea to use a Drip plan with Foolish Four stocks (call it the Droolish Four--a very nice name at least). After all, Foolish Four stocks change yearly, while Drip stocks should be held for a very long time. Also, there is a one time fee for starting up a Drip with a company. Paying that fee for possibly only one year just would not be worth while.

Right,wrong or not quite?

Thanks a bunch.
