ArcticTerror, one option is to decide how many companies you will invest in overall. Divide your $20K by the # of companies to come up with an average per company; then put that amount per co. into however many companies you want to invest in now. If you're going to then wait to invest in some others, keep the leftover $$$ in a money market until you're ready to invest the additional amount(s).

If you register with any of the CK's which have DRIPS through a DRIP service like Moneypaper, you might have your final companies selected by the time you receive your paperwork from those DRIPS (according to Moneypaper, can take six weeks to get set up). By that time, you might have decided to invest in more or less companies than you are thinking of now.
