Hi all,

Way back when I first started picking my own stocks, I made repeated attempts to solicit input from my wife. I tried to follow Lynch's advice and to get her to spot new and busy retail stores that she might come across. Nothing. Not one suggestion. Other attempts failed miserably too. She has absolutely no interest in investing or finance period. They say opposites attract . . . .

Anyway, the other day totally out of the blue she tells me that "at home schooling/classes" are the new up and coming trend and that I should find a stock of a company that develops these programs.

This is so far out of my circle that I'm at a loss of where to begin. I'm aware of MHP and Apollo but don't think either of those two are really what she's thinking about.

Any suggestions? Anything at all?

Thanks in advance,
