To my delight, my sons accepted the terms and started investing in January 2014, each choosing one stock from those offered at Loyal3.
At the end of last year, I turned the tables on my sons and asked them for a different kind of Christmas present. I asked them to e-mail me an update of their accounts and to do a little reflection on their first year as stock owners. I also wanted to nudge them into thinking about the next year and their future as investors.
my article on Seeking Alpha where I share some of the lessons learned, including one that was most humbling to me. I include a summary of each of my sons' portfolios and share some of the reasons for their stock picks.
