Age Affects Stock Picks

54515014_ba429ba652_oGenerational gaps are apparent in many areas of life, but did you know they affect what stocks you are more likely to pick?

Apple is the top stock pick for almost all investors, but after that the next popular picks vary depending on the age of the investor.

Millennials are far more likely to buy stock in newer technology and Internet companies. Facebook (FB, Tech30) is the second most popular stock among ages 25 to 34, according to TD Ameritrade.

And when it comes to Baby Boomers, who are 65 or over, they are the only group that would not buy Apple as their first purchase. Their first stock is more likely to be GE.
