How Old Do You Have to Be to Start Investing?

As Fools, we're often asked the question, "What is a good age to start investing?" Well, from our Foolish perspective, it's never too early to start! Recently, Motley Fool One analyst Jason Moser spoke with his daughters Hannah (age 8) and Ainsley (age 6) about what they've learned so far in their young investing lives. The girls now own four stocks, and they've been investing for a little more than a year. Thanks to My Scorecard, they also know they're beating the market by four percentage points! Jason finds out more about their favorite stocks, and why they like them in this video.
