Apparently Tesla stock is popular with young adults and not seniors like me: Tesla ainâ€™t no stock for old men, but Apple is - MarketWatch My cohort seems stuck in only the most familiar mud. Indeed, it has been hard to convince my older friends about Tesla cars and stock. They want cars that make noise, guzzle gas and are smiled upon by the hosts of Fox News. They want stocks that pay dividends and are recommended by the Wall Street Journal. They appreciated new ideas when they were young, but no more. Fortunately, today's young people can see the prospects for innovative 21st century products. I suspect they'll be buying Tesla cars and stock in even greater volume as they grow wiser and richer. I'm 69 and have been a Tesla shareholder for 27 months. What's your situation?
