If the child is not born yet (and obviously no SS#), is it possible to buy stock in my name, then transfer (or gift) them to the child after a SS# is established? What are the costs and pros/cons of this? Or am I better off holding the money in a money market account until I can establish a custodial account with the child's SS#?
