Well let me frame the $100 - I have a large holding (relative to the size of my portfolio) of Pfizer stock held in the DRIP account. I have been adding to it when I feel like Pfizer is a good buy in small quanities.Since there are no transaction costs I see no reason not to invest in Pfizer in small amounts
