    Millennials Love Trading

    This tech-savvy generation is fond of trading and investing, and that's no secret.

    Millennials often trade stocks more actively than other generations, both young and experienced investors, during certain periods. Interestingly, their trading volume can sometimes be twice that of Generation X.

    Millennials are enthusiastic about buying stocks of popular companies such as:

    • Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA)
    • Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL)
    • Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN)
    • Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)
    • Meta Platforms (NASDAQ:META)
    • Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA)
    • Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL)

    Interestingly, Tesla is the top choice among young investors, with the highest number of purchases.

    Other stocks include Mullen Automotive (NASDAQ:MULN), Moderna (NASDAQ:MRNA), and Enphase Energy Inc (NASDAQ:ENPH).

    In 2023, Marathon Digital Holdings emerged as the top performer among millennials' favorite stocks, surging +190%, closely followed by Nvidia.

    Additionally, when delving into less conventional stock choices, millennials favored the following purchases:
