so i don't want to use a 529 plan. I think I can see much better growth over the next 15-17 years by investing in the stock of select companies. 529s don't allow for this.question is what is the best vehicle for doing so?a regular trading account?a Roth IRA? are only the contributions eligible for withdrawal or can earnings be withdrawn for education expenses? if only contributions then for terms of saving for college this option would be no better than a savings account (aside from the benefit to me that I could see capital appreciation earned off the money saved for college but that wouldn't benefit my son!)is there another option outside of those two?i gathered from some other posts that it would be disadvantageous to put either of those accounts in my sons name for this purpose... correct?Thanks for any help!Michael
