I call bull.

on average it costs 7 dollars per trade, so the initial investment would only be 93 dollars, assuming his dad let him use his account . the average growth of a stock is 9% a year in generous mutual funds. if he invested 93 dollars, using the rule of 72 it would double to $186 in 8 years. he has only been alive 12 years. you could argue that he invested them all into corporate stock at average 11% return rate. but still his money would double in 7 years.

stock grows but it grows exponentially over time. for instance, if you invest 1 dollar into a mutual fund today, you could get back 44 dollars in 44 years assuming no crashes, recessions, buy outs e.c.t. e.c.t. . but if you invest 1 dollar in the market and pull out in 4 years, you get $1.50. there simply isn't enough time to *10 your money in one year. especially when trading fees are close to 10% of your investment

tl;dr op is a faggot

All I see is a picture of a kid in front of some money. He got 100 bucks for his b-day and there are 10,000 on the table. So what? The text doesn't create any connection between the two.

Context clues indicate that he invested the 100$ and wound up with a **** ton of cash. You need to go back to school.

Gonna go with bs on this one because $100 is really not that much if you want to invest, even starting out with $1000 is low, the only way this could happen is if his dad attache the $100 to a portfolio with more money in it, but simply returned the kid's fraction of profit at the end.

Except the likelihood of winning the lottery as opposed to investing with some sense and making good returns is retarded.

Have you ever consider that the post actually says that his brother get $100 and IT'S FEELS LIKE having $10.000? I mean come the 			****		 on, don't you feel like a billionaire pimp when you get $100 on your 12th birthday?   
   
This has been reposted a lot of times and now OP's title and description ruined the joke.

You kidding me, dude?
Now this whole thingy mabober probably isn't true, seeing how everyone's getting riled up about how this isn't possible in the stock market. But when it comes to the picture, that kid is sitting over at least $5,000.

The cash rectangle is lined with multiple hundred dollar bills. That's way more than $100.

Can some one explain to me what the content actully says? I mean, I know what stocks are, but I don't understand what it means? He got 100$ for his 12th birthday? And now it's almost 10,000$? The kid still looks twelve.

The kid got $100, invested it in the stock market and made $10000.

I'm not sure if tomahawkkit is correct or not, but he makes sense, but it's a ****** gift either way. "Here's $100 you can use on the stock market. If you lose it, you don't get birthday money."
