Because of the economy, the stock market has never been more unstable. You literally have to have nerves (and a stomach) of steel – especially if you’re new to investing. And if you are new, then you have to deal with all those shady investment “advisors”. Forget it. We have some investment ideas for you here that are just as lucrative as the stock market, more safe, and even, more fun to invest in.
Like luxury watches? Who doesn’t, they’re the ultimate wearable status symbol. But what many don’t realize is that wearing a watch like a vintage Patek Philippe, or Rolex, is literally like wearing a stock that never goes down on your wrist. Get the right watch, and you could double your money in just 5 years! Plus, you get to wear (ahem, show off) your investment.
Did you know that a well-kept 1977 Pontiac Firebird, a BMW E30, or a Porsche 911 RS can go for more now than what they cost back then – including inflation! Oh, and let’s not forget that 80’s Back-To-The-Future car, the Delorean. These cars are rare as they were produced in very small numbers. So as long as they’re keept in great condition, you’ll have one hell of an investment piece in your garage.
Glenfarclas (made in the 1950’s), or Rosebank (whose distillery closed back in 1993) – are bottles of whisky that have jumped more than 34 percent in just the first quarter of 2015. Who knew your favorite drink could bring you such returns.
Star Wars Toys
When the new Star Wars film – The Force Awakens – was released this year, a whole new crop of action figures were released with it. So what happened to the toys made back when the first films came out back in the 70’s? They jumped by 30 percent or more. So why is this still a good investment? Duh… they’re making at least 2 more films.
If you’re into kicks, like the new Yeezy Boost sneakers by Kanye that retail for $360, then you’re probably already aware that they now sell on eBay for more than $4000! And if you think that’s a huge profit, don’t forget about those classic Air Jordan’s. They’re the most expensive collector sneakers in the world.
Sure, you can buy gold stocks. But buying the actual bars itself is always a safer move. Why? Because other conditions can cause gold producing companies’ stock price to drop – like them going bankrupt. Also, when you own physical gold, it’s not as easy to click sell when you get a bit nervous – making it a great long term hold.
This one’s a no-brainer, but just in case you don’t have a brain… owning real-estate is great if you like having significant cash flow, like to be able to leverage other people’s money, enjoy huge tax write-offs – all on top of making money off a market that just keeps going up and up.
This one is by far the least obvious, but treating yourself like an investment yields the biggest returns. For example, enrolling in coaching programs (specifically for entrepreneurs), will help you to stay on your business goals and help you to achieve more. When you invest in yourself first, all other investments you make seem to flourish along with you.
