InvestED: Ep. 215- What Stocks to Buy for Your Children?

“The advice, buy and hold, is very good advice, as long as hold means 40 to 60 years.” – Phil Town

This week, Phil and Danielle talk about parents buying stocks for children. She has a couple of choices. The first choice is to do what Buffett says to do and buy the US stock index, SPY. Or you can buy individual companies. What would you do for your child?

They also talk about the differences between indexes like the S&P 500 or the Russel 2000. The S&P 500 tend to be a little more steady than other indexes. Phil also discusses the Shiller PE ratio and what it means when the ratio is 25 and above for your returns.
