When share trader Garth McKenzie’s first son was born almost four years ago he started an investment portfolio of 10 stocks for him.
The portfolio McKenzie constructed for him sought to generate an annualised return of at least 15% per annum including dividends.
McKenzie started what became a popular blog entitled “10 Stocks for My Son”.
His portfolio wildly outperformed the market.
Last year, however, was flat, as can be expected.
Listen to the audio below to learn what shares McKenzie is buying for his son (and/or scroll down for quotes).
