My 17 yr old son earned some money this summer and has given me $300 to invest.
I am thinking about stocks he is familiar with coke, pepsi, disney, Mcdonalds, under armour, ralph lauren. Apple and google are expensive.

Any ideas/
I was thinking about direct investing to avoid the trading cost. he does have a custodial account at Td ameritrade. This will be long term.
thank you
