These 10 Stocks Are Gifts That Keep on Giving - Slide 1 | GOBankingRates: Traditionally, gifts for a college graduate or a newly married couple are depreciating assets — like a new car or a set of stainless steel pots and pans. But what if you could give a gift that had the potential to rise in value over time instead?
Gifting shares of stock can do just that. Gifting stock is a simple process. You can buy shares in your own account, then complete some simple paperwork to send those shares into the account of someone else. Even if you just buy one share of stock, it could still be a very generous gift. If you give a share of Berkshire Hathaway's pricier stock, for example, you'll be gifting more than $300,000.
