So where is the young money headed and what are some millennial investing trends?

Hot FANG stocks like Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN) and Netflix (NFLX) are no doubt interesting to this generation of investors, as are Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Turns out, Apple (AAPL) is the most widely held stock by millennial investors, according to trade-clearing firm, Apex. Millennials are also winning big on stocks like Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA) and Snap (SNAP). And investing apps like Robinhood, Acorns, Stash and others are roping in beginner investors.
