And these numbers don't reflect dividends that were reinvested or the fact that I owned and accumulated shares in a very cost-friendly way via DRIPs. Those are crucial points to understand. The combination of long-term (one might even call it the much-maligned "buy-and-hold") investing, dividend reinvestment, dollar-cost averaging, and no-cost/low-cost investing is a powerful strategy for wealth creation. It worked for me, and it has worked for many of the investors who started with our Charter issue over 20 years ago and are still with us today!
