An 8-pound, 6-ounce package captured the world's attention this week. Prince George Alexander Louis, the newest heir to the British throne, arrived Monday at St. Mary's Hospital, London. With a net worth measured in the tens of billions, this baby boy could use some stock picks to keep his empire pulling profits. Here are three stock ideas for the prince's portfolio.
1. Boy toy
While George might not go bananas for Barbie or American Girl, he can hop on board with Hot Wheels and Fisher-Price, as well as licenses for Thomas & Friends, Toy Story, and Cars.
Naysayers (understandably) point to the demise of physical toys, but Mattel has made its mark with strategic partnerships such as an Angry Bird board game. If Mattel can adapt to the changing child-entertainment world, its 3.3% dividend yield will keep George in golden diapers for plenty of years past potty-training.
2. Gimme those car keys
The company bought the failing British business from Ford (NYSE: F) in 2008 for a paltry $2.3 billion, and sales have skyrocketed ever since. It's now Tata's most profitable entity, and it has enjoyed major sales growth in Asia. With its new entry into the Australian market, this might be George's best ticket to reliving the British Empire's heyday.
3. Power to the people
