Millennials: Scared to Invest or Just Broke? - Zacks Market Edge Podcast 25

In this episode, Tracey is joined by Ryan McQueeney and Andrew Steele, two of Zacks financial writing interns, and also millennials, to talk about what it’s like being a millennial in 2016. Are millennials investing in stocks or are they just too broke? If not, why not? Many of them basically “came of age” during the Great Recession, which saw one of the worst bear markets in stocks in the last 50 years. But if they do have any extra cash to put into the stock market, after paying their student loans, what kinds of companies most interest them? The millennials grew up with Amazon (AMZN), Facebook’s Instagram (FB) and Twitter (TWTR) as part of their everyday lives. Does that mean they want to invest in these companies? What about “old” name companies like the railroads or General Electric (GE)? And is Apple (AAPL) now, gasp, “old”? Some answers may surprise you. While the millennials face a lot of challenges other generations before them didn’t have, such as a tight and competitive job market and soaring rents, it’s also been a great time to be a stock market investor. Find out all about what millennials really think about investing, why Tracey is “depressed” and more, on this week’s interesting podcast.
