Stocks for Teens to Consider

Teens and Their Money

By Selena Maranjian

Here's a list of some companies that you might consider learning more about. Note that while each of them is generally well regarded by many people, you shouldn't run out and immediately buy shares in any of them. For one thing, some or all of them might be overpriced right now. Also, some of them might be headed for a stretch of poor performance or sinking share prices. Also, a few of them are included not so much because they're great American companies but more because they're companies that many teens buy stuff from and are familiar with (Vans, bebe, Pacific Sunwear, etc.).

Each is worth learning more about. Each has an interesting business that might reward you well over the coming years. And regardless, just learning about any business will help you understand and evaluate other businesses. Below the list are links to Fool articles on some of the companies. Remember that there are many other interesting firms -- ones you might know more about and might be more interested in.

Below are some Fool articles and discussion board posts on many of the above companies (many are not recent, but they will still inform you about the companies):
