It is good to have investments. You have the opportunity to get more money back than you put in and it can be of a higher rate than a standard savings account will help improve your finances. The issue is knowing what to invest in and when to buy/sell, so here are some tips on what to invest in and when you might want to buy or sell.
Apple products have taken over the world in recent years. You can barely walk down the street anymore without seeing someone with an iPhone or holding an iPad. They don’t look to be slowing down anytime soon, so this might be the perfect time for you to invest in their stock. This is especially true at Christmas time as many people buy Apple products as gifts for family and friends. The increased sales will likely cause an Apple stock seasonality effect. This means that it will increase far more during the busy holiday period than at any other time of year. You can buy the stock before the New Year and then sell once it has hit its apex and make a nice amount of money. You could also invest in Apple for the long run, too. Many professionals project an increase in Apple’s stock price for the coming year.
At the moment, Netflix is dominating the streaming service market. It has a new Netflix original series coming out almost every week and has seen a massive increase in subscribers over the past few years. Netflix is likely to continue this growth with a steady flow of excellent movies and TV shows. This makes it the perfect long-term investment. You might want to invest in shares rather than stocks for Netflix, but either one is a good choice and should see a return on investment. If you are thinking about investing in streaming services, then Netflix is the most likely of all of the current services to continue to be successful.
Sports Trading Cards
Some things never die, and society's love for sports and their favorite players, as well as statistics about those players is a passion that seems to burn on despite the world changing so rapidly. Taking the opportunity to invest in a highly graded sports trading card of one of your favorite players is a brilliant idea, as these often acquire higher value with age, so the longer that you look after your purchase the more valuable it will be. You can even purchase sports cards with your player's autograph, or cards with a piece of a jersey they have worn! Sports card investing can be a wonderfully exciting investment pathway to explore, as you can either choose to shop from home in online auctions, go small scale in person at local trading events, or go large scale in person at huge card trading shows. So get clued up on the latest names and faces to ensure you can attract the largest return on your small investment.
