With world economy experiencing one of the worst recession in recent decades, the fear factor has absolutely taken over the investors mind. But there are some wise investor that keep themselves active whether it is recession or booming market. Just keeping one’s money in a checking/savings account does not help meet the long term financial goals. So what are the options that wise investor are looking at for their money to get multiplied when things improve even by slightest margin. Are they investing in government bonds, real estate, equity markets, gold?
In the current market every opportunity and instrument offers a great value if used adequately. You may ask does it make sense to invest in equity now as the markets are going down 10 to 20 percent every month? I would say yes, there are blue chip stocks available at b1 or b2 teir stock price, do not wait for the blue chip to become 10 cents or 1 rupee to make call, that will never happen unless the company is declared bankrupt. Do assess the financial health and business model, but not go by the down turn. Does IT industry run without IBM or Microsoft, or can the people live with no cell phones in today’s world? Can we live with no power?
The answer is no, so go for those players leading the industry which is linked to the day to day life of the people, you will never make a wrong choice even in the current market. The wise investor have been actively doing this in the stock markets, when the villains are down and exit from the market these heroes take advantage of the opportunity. Imagine if you have been investing stocks for the last 2 to 3 months in phased manner, how much money one could have made after the market has recovered. Of course wise investors never look at the short cycles but these are the stepping stones for achieving long-term objectives.
Real Estate is down, no one got guts to say whether it is going to improve in next one month, 6 months or 1 year, but I would say it has to improve in the long run, the simple notation, number of people on the planet would grow or peoples necessities grow but not the land. Wise people are searching for opportunities that would offer them 30 to 5o% price advantage. In fact if you are interested to buy a flat at Rs 1500 per square foot there are opportunities, what is the possibility of it going down, 5% or 10%…no if it goes beyond that the builder stop the construction activity, that automatically creates demand for the existing ones thus your investment will gain significantly.
Sounds simple right? Try it with small investments in real estate you will be the king by next two years. Gold is a ever safe investment, it is mostly for the risk averse investors but aggressive wise investors not ruling out this option out rightly. They use this as defensive instrument against the liquidity requirements they might have in the process of making investment decisions.
So if you have money and think you are wise you can do the same..what are you waiting for, go and grab the golden opportunities be it equity or real estate, you make a choice and decide.
