Gee Paul, I feel slighted and like you could be playing favorites! VBG What a wonderful way to introduce your daughter to the world of investing!

That is great. I did the same for my son and his family. I grub staked them to 15K at .10 cents. With the understanding the the Grand children's education come out of it first and that it be allowed to grow and not be traded for several years. This one is long term!

It's a Largo Day!

Dusty :o)

Don't feel badly about the deal you made with your daughter. At least you kept the shares in the family.

Now, many years ago, I think it was 1983, my daughter was taking a class in high school that had something to do with the stock market. She had a few hundred dollars to invest and decided to buy a new, local company that had been in the news.

She took her money, invested it and watched it double. Then she sold all her shares.

Think about what those shares would have been worth had she held on (I, of course, encouraged her to take the money and run!)

Oh...the company and its symbol? Intel (INTC)...duh!

Newbie then...not now.
