It appears you are intent to buy and hold specific companies. IMO, DCA for this stratgey is too costly (re: commissions) if you buy small quantities in the tax sheltered account. If you were able to pay the commission with $$ outside of the account the story changes.

My strategy is to accumulate sufficient $$$ through an index first. Question then becomes when and how, even if, to distribute among a personal portfolio.

Timing is a concern for both strategies.

I believe both strategies have merit. The choice between diversification and growth is the personal decision that must be answered.
