I've been attending way too many weddings lately. My younger cousins keep getting married, and it may not be long before my eldest niece gets hitched as well. Time flies when you're heaving rice.
I was a chump the last time. I promised myself that I would get my cousin Victoria an eccentric wedding present. I wound up checking off the Crock-Pot on her registry instead.
Why didn't I buy her a few shares of a growth stock? You know, the kind of company that will grow as successful marriages do?
I've still got time to get it right. With the wedding pipeline still flowing in my family, I've narrowed down the search to seven public companies that I think would be ideal matrimonial presents.
Which bride-to-be will get which stock? That remains to be seen. All I know is that as investors, gifting growth stocks is the best wedding choice you can make.
Don't get caught holding a Crock-Pot again.
