Is your teen interested in investing? If so, you may want to let him research and pick the stock or stocks. There may never be a better time to get a financial education, and they sure won't teach him in college (unless he is a finance major). If he is not interested, do the research yourself, but I advise picking a company in which he is interested (If he is attending college, I might suggest Anheuser-Busch, which has a no-fee DRiP <grin>). Then, encourage him to follow the performance of the company and get him interested in making optional contributions, or picking new DRiPs.

Good Luck,
Steve Wallen
