Kids stock portfolio

Hey everybody

The opposite day I used to be listening to Mikes @ dividend shares rock podcast’s – The dividend man weblog podcast. I actually get pleasure from his episodes however one specifically stood out just lately get your children to take a position. It was an amazing one.

Final 12 months I did a publish about us getting our youngsters into shares, you will discover that publish right here. On the time it was simply my son, however our daughter is now investing as nicely.

For the file my son is 9 and our daughter is 4. They’ve a longtime body for investing and I can’t wait to see their portfolio develop earlier than they’ll want the cash sooner or later for probably their first automobile or a home and so on.

Mike teaches his children somewhat in a different way then we’re, however they’re additionally older. My son may in all probability go that route however our daughter is just too younger. Personally I began this to indicate them money circulation for doing nothing and simply get their toes moist into the world of investing.

He truly opened separate tfsas for his children whereas I simply preserve their shares in our portfolio in our tfsa’s. I created a google sheets spreadsheet to maintain monitor of their buys and dividends they obtained. I truly like his far more, however for now I pay my children the money dividends at any time when they obtain them. Whereas Id love for the money to remain of their investing account, they at all times received the selection to reinvest it as soon as they get sufficient for a full share.

If you recognize me, you recognize I’m an enormous fan of drip investing however in the mean time they don’t make sufficient to drip any shares. They like the money and to be sincere I like giving it to them. Cash for doing nothing. Its a studying lesson and it additionally teaches them to spend the cash or reserve it.


The children birthdays are each round Christmas. They get flooded with items and “stuff” a lot stuff… They don’t want as a lot as they’ve. Most youngsters don’t! Fortunately some members of the family give money and we have a tendency to present stuff and money now as nicely. (no money on Christmas, however their birthdays we give them some)

I then give them the choice to purchase some extra shares or preserve it. Generally they need to preserve it, however as soon as I pay them a money dividend they typically ask if they’ll get extra inventory. With shares like Algonquin energy at lower than 20 bucks a share, it’s inexpensive – even for them.

They bust out their piggy banks and see what they’ll provide you with. 1 12 months in the past we began to get the youngsters into investing and issues continue to grow for them.

Youngsters Inventory Portfolios

Yesterday my son and daughter gave me some extra money to take a position. I purchased our son 2 extra algonquin energy and 1 suncor and our daughter 1 algonquin.

I then went over their portfolio to indicate them the expansion.

Sons Portfolio

My son at present holds these shares

  • 3 tc power
  • 5 algonquin energy
  • 9 suncor
  • 2 td financial institution

Whole Capital Invested = $729.09

Worth on March thirteenth 2022 – $865.66

A 18.73% improve in worth not together with dividends since final 12 months. A terrific begin. He has obtained $14.52 in money from dividends leading to a complete improve of 20.72% since he began his journey in investing final 12 months.

Daughters Portfolio

Our daughter at present holds these shares

  • 3 Suncor
  • 3 Algonquin
  • 1 Td financial institution

Whole Capital Invested = $248.66

Worth on March 14th 2022 – $274.27

A ten.32% improve in worth. So much much less however her portfolio actually didn’t begin till October final 12 months. Most of her holdings have been bought after Christmas 2021. She has obtained 78 cents in dividends.

The cool factor is her face nonetheless lights proper up when she will get her dividends. The greenback worth doesn’t matter a lot to her now, its the behavior that she is beginning to construct that’s necessary.

Inventory Selecting

A few of you’re in all probability questioning how my children got here up with their holdings. Proper now I choose what they need to purchase. I purchase worth and likewise need there to be a good yield and dividend development. In fact I need inventory appreciation as nicely however these holdings are by no means development shares.

I really feel at this stage of the sport its all about constructing habits. The explanation I actually get pleasure from dividend development investing is the rising money circulation. If their portfolio was made up of simply development shares they wouldn’t get these smiles once I hand them the money funds each time they receives a commission. (To not point out their portfolio would of gotten killed, and that may be a tough promote – you had x now its value half wanna purchase extra?)

With their long run investing horizon would they be higher off with development names? Possibly however they might solely purchase 1-2 prime quality development shares and they’d receives a commission peanuts. Possibly sooner or later as soon as my son will get somewhat older we are going to discuss going that route however for now the largest windfalls they get is 100 bucks right here and there


Exhibiting my son yesterday his portfolio he was shocked to see how a lot cash he has and likewise that he has gotten paid and the general worth has went up. I don’t assume he even realized the inventory worth can go up as nicely, though we now have talked about it. They’ll additionally go down I inform him….

My daughter actually doesn’t care in any respect, shes mainly like cool can we play barbies now? Positive, however I’m Chelsea!

Nicely there’s somewhat replace on the youngsters portfolio a couple of 12 months later. I like to recommend everybody begin educating their children ultimately about cash. I do know I might of benefited rather a lot with one thing like this rising up, however my household didn’t discuss cash a lot. Ahhh nicely I’d prefer to assume I turned out alright…….

Do you get your children into investing or train them about funds? I might like to know what you do, perhaps I may strive one in every of your strategies. I’m certain all of us do issues somewhat in a different way but when there’s a studying lesson in there for the youngsters its all value it.

Haha, have an amazing day
