We tried to turn this setback into an opportunity and bought Viacom (VIAB) stocks... which dropped by -6% today. Still we hold it for a fundamentally good investment and will keep the stock.

JuniorDepot I – Eröffnung bei DeGiro – Basic oder Custody?

Finanzieller Analphabetismus in Deutschland ist – unserer Erfahrung nach - wirklich schrecklich. Leute wollen keine Steuererstattung beantragen (lassen), lehnen jegliche Alternativen zur Hausbank ab und zahlen (zu) hohen Zinsen, und so weiter und so fort. Heute aber berichten wir um einen erfreulichem Fall: einer von unseren Stammleser will für seine siebenjährige Tochter das Depot eröffnen und €100/mo. investieren, so dass die Mädle sich zur Volljährigkeit ein Auto leisten kann.
Da es ein wirklich vorbildliches Vorhaben ist, werden wir dieses Projekt während der nächsten 11 Jahre ausführlich erläutern. Wir fangen mit der Brokerwahl und die organisatorischen Nuancen an.
