With using a stacker like 3M's Stack-Its you can usually do up to eight cables.

Thanks Speedy Petey --- I have the stack-its. Is there anything in code
that prevents you from running eight (8) wires down one stud ?
Thanks again for the reply

No, as long as the 1.25" setback from the face of the stud is maintained.
