Rudy Urrutia says:

OK now I have a better understanding how five dollars can grow to be more that was the question I’ve been trying to figure out but my last question is is there a difference if you choose to buy more stocks into the same one for an example the five was the starter and if I add more to the same one would that be any difference would it increase my stocks and how?
