Dan had a great plan. He was deeply thinking about investing and so his plan was to buy 1 stock a day for the rest of his life. He looked into good companies and researched the ones that had good value to them. Than he made a list of companies he wanted to invest in and priced them out at the current and past market prices. Some stocks were $5 while others were over $100. He thought to himself, if he bought 1 stock a day for 1 year, he would have over 350 stocks in his portfolio by the end of the year. Then the thought, if he did this for 10 years, he would have over 3500 stocks in his portfolio. This does not include the appreciation of the stocks which he decided he would re-invest the interest that he would draw from his stocks. And no matter what the market rate of the stock was, he still bought 1 stock a day. He did the math on it and he would track his stocks on a daily basis. He would save all of his stocks until he retired.
