I agree with Dean's suggestion on using a 2-3 year horizon for buying your CK stocks. I am in the same boat as you...I have some cash I want to invest in some CK's, but plan on investing in most of them over 20 months or so. I am doing this mainly because I think that some of them are overpriced (yes, I know that this goes against what the CK portfolio has done -- I guess I'm using a growth and value approach together). There's obviously a chance that the stock prices will rise in the next 20 months and I'll kick myself, but I'll take that chance. And if I see that the price of any stock I'm buying drops during that period to a reasonable level, I'll go ahead and dump the remaining cash I have allocated for that stock.

While I plan on investing over this 20-month or so horizon, I can't invest monthly because the $12 broker fee would be too high. I'll have to invest quarterly instead, so that the $12 fee is a smaller percentage of my investment.

If you invest in KO, INTC, and PFE, use their DRIPs so that you can invest monthly without incurring broker fees.
