    Default Highest ROI/Bang for your Buck Investments?

    Fellow L4players,
    In terms of sheer profit potential (dollar-for-dollar), what kinds of investments would you say are the best? For the sake of this thread, please assume that risk and initial funding aren't major issues. I'm looking to see how I can broaden my horizons.

    Thank you.

    If risk and funding isn't a problem?

    I'd say making absolutely huge bets on companies is up there; risks are huge, but rewards are too. If you're throwing enough money around you can make a cool million in an afternoon.

    You've got to limit yourself someway, there is no "best investment" for everyone, because everyone has a different risk threshold.

    edit: In addition, what's your timeline? Low-cost target date funds could be an option for you. Can't go wrong with Vanguard. If you don't plan on touching or managing the investment then look to index funds.

    Also consider gold investing

    Timeline doesn't matter either.
    I was considering getting cheap auction properties and either flipping them via the family business, or hanging onto them and renting the houses out. That's good for long-term, steady income but I wanted to know what the riskier/more rewarding options on the table are.

    I know people making large sums on sports betting, I on the other hand have had very little luck... It really depends, if you have a business you can grow with high turnover that could be good, stock and currency markets can make or lose bucketloads etc. There is no simple solution, just find something you want to do and make sure you get really good at it.

    Day trade forex. If you want to toss me a nice chunk of change I can make you some money doing it, but I'll take a sizeable cut for my services.

    Didn't Robert Himler's girlfriend make a boatload off forex or something? I remember that being controversial a while back.

    If your family business is in the contracting industry I'd say that'd be a good avenue. It's people who buy property, sub-contract everything out without having background in the industry that get bit, hard.

    We have family business in seemingly everything. I've been looking into flipping properties for a while, since funding and remodeling aren't issues. Getting into that game just seems like more work than reward, with so many people already buying auction homes in cash. The difficulty is just getting the ball rolling. It would be great to get side-income through flipping or renting, but I need to sit down and plan the logistics out.

    I'll tell you, and you probably already know, getting the ball rolling on almost anything seems like more work than reward in the beginning; the planning is a bitch, but it's one of the most important things in your arsenal for you to refer back to when you need to separate your emotion from the project.

    Take a few days to put down everything in your head about the project on a piece of paper. Inflate your costs 15-20% then ask yourself if it's worth your time.
