Different Opportunities For Different Investors
It’s helpful to start your investment journey with an informed step the right direction. Resources like this guide to investing help you determine what the best options for investment will be, and help you line out effective forward strategies for 2019. The truth is, different people in different places will be better suited making different investments.
Following are investment strategies worth considering as you move forward into 2019. For some, property is a better investment, for others, shares make more sense. Know what capital you have to work with, what you can afford to lose, what the market looks like, and what to avoid.
1. Real Estate: Residential And Otherwise
McDonald’s isn’t actually a restaurant business, it’s a real estate business. Executives buy prime locations and allow franchisees to operate chain outlets there. Having the right real estate is an investment even if you haven’t built a structure on the property. If you’re a larger business, such ventures are key; but even less affluent landowners can make money here.
In olden days, those who had oil on their land could sell it at high profit to drilling companies. Today, property that is ideal for a cell tower can be a goldmine—if you buy the property ahead of the cell companies, and lease the land to them.
Additionally, there’s home investment. Careful examination of real estate markets can reveal property that will appreciate, and which is worth investing in. Which alternatives of the real estate variety best suit you will differ, but as the economy begins to expand, there are property markets which look favorable in terms of 2019 investment potential.
2. Startups And Developing Industries
Here’s a list of 50 companies Bloomberg thinks you should watch in 2019. Now, investing need not necessarily be in high-profile ventures. If you know a couple young kids looking to start a landscaping and snow removal company to give them work throughout the year, giving them a few thousand for a cut of future profits could end up yielding big.
Developing companies need capital, and the right ones are going to bring you returns. You need to know who you’re investing in, and be careful here. However, if you’re strategic, this can be a good move. If you go with more high-profile companies that are developing, it’s a bigger gamble; but savvy investiture yields returns.
3. CDs And Traditionally Viable Investments
All over the web you can find traditional investment opportunities you may want to consider. The link lists eleven common opportunities; such as CDs, government bonds, municipal bond funds, and other more secure investments.
4. Specifically Trending Stocks
Certain stocks remain relatively constant continuously. Coke, McDonald’s, etc. Some are poised to expand massively with swiftness, like the BitCoin bubble a little while back. But that bubble burst. If you’re going to play the stocks, you need to get a feel for the market. Start with small amounts and day-trade carefully. 2019 has opportunities, but be strategic.
5. Careers And Side-Hustles
2019 might be one of the best years in recent memory to invest in your own career, or a relevant “side hustle”. Here’s the thing: economic markets are looking good presently, meaning discretionary income among populations may naturally rise, giving a unique business opportunity greater likelihood to succeed.
Buy that new computer, or that t-shirt making machine for the festival town you live in. If you’ve got something you’ve had on the back-burner, 2019 might be the year to focus on it more. Even if things don’t immediately pan out, careers and side-hustles are more secure investments generally.
Between careers, side-hustles, trending stocks, traditional investment avenues, startups, developing industries, and real estate, there are a lot of investment opportunities in 2019. Figure out which ones resonate with you, and maybe take a chance this year.
