I know many real estate investors that are looking to buy something in this market that will help diversify and protect the wealth that they have created over the last decade.
The big question is: What are people investing in and why?
As the stock market goes down, so does mortgage rates. We are close to all time lows for mortgage interest! That is pretty exciting to me.
However, in these uncertain times I am investing slowly, carefully and making sure to diversify. I am branching out into new investment ideas and seeking out only the best advice.
I realized that value longer term stock picks might be a great way to invest at the moment. Generally, I prefer short term stock trades - but this market is offering up some amazing opportunties. I recently bought a subscription to a newsletter where the guys specialized in longer term investments. They are setting themselves up for the next few years and capitalizing on the discount in the markets.
You can read my review of the Capital Exploits Insider Weekly newsletter here and see if it might be worth your time checking out some of their ideas. They have a stellar reputation for this type of investment and so far I love their investment ideas.
The Capital Exploits team are looking at safe but high return investments. Sectors like shipping and commodities in general offer potential 500% returns over the next few years.
Remember, this economy is temporary and most bear markets are short. I think that the average bear market lasts only 27 months.
I am looking at investing in diamonds, wool, oil and gold. These are all commodities that I think will do well over the longer term. I am not buying these commodities directly - I don't have room for barrels of oil, wool and large piles of gold. I do have enough room for diamonds though!
Rather, I am buying stocks of companies that are linked to these commodities and that the stock price generally follows the price of the underlying commodities.
These are just my thoughts for the day and are not ment as investment advice. I hope that everyone is doing well in this volatile economy! I am convinced that the real tragedy when the dust settles will NOT be the death rate from the virus. I am convinced that the economic destruction of small business and the average american family will be far worse than a few thousand deaths.
Remember, more than 10,000 people die in the USA every day from other causes. I am not trying to down play the seriousness of this illness - just trying to put it into some perspective.
