4 Investments to Consider


Investing can be a lucrative way of making your money work for you, but not every investment pays off. That's why you might want to think outside the box and consider less traditional ways of making your money grow. Of course, no matter what you choose, you will want to make sure you become an expert in that commodity so you will have a better chance of making things work for you.

Penny Stocks

Penny stocks have a relatively low cost compared to their traditional counterparts, so you can purchase however many or few shares you want to start out with. You can often get thousands of shares for not too much money. There's also the potential for gaining money quickly. Of course, as with any type of investment, you will want to know what you are doing, so it pays to do your research. That's why it’s a good idea to have a stock watch list ready so you can take advantage of the best penny stocks to trade.

Sports Collectibles

The same way many want to diversify travel experiences, diversifying your investments can be fun and exciting as well as profitable. The value of certain types of sports collectibles and memorabilia has gone up over the past several years, and if you collected it in the past, you may find you can cash in on your collection. Of course, you will need to make sure you are not emotionally attached to any items you decide to buy or sell. Instead, you will need to cut yourself off from any emotional attachment, as the price is determined by the commodity’s sully and demand.

Spend some time learning about what has gone up in value and begin by collecting the items you are able to afford. Consider investing in a wide variety of items, such as autographed items. If you come across anything rare, like items from popular athletes. Know that just because an athlete is liked now does not mean they will be in the future.

Comic Books

In the past, comic books were often thrown away after kids were done reading them, and as a result, not that many have survived. They became valuable for a number of reasons, and scarcity certainly played a role. When you are investing in comic books, make sure you check for defects, such as folds or missing pages. Often, the most valuable ones are those with the first appearances of characters.


Depending on the coin, you could get thousands of dollars by selling a coin collection. Of course, coin collectors often look for coins that are still in good condition, even if they are old. In fact, sometimes, the most valuable coins are ones that are old but still in mint condition. If you will be collecting this commodity, make sure you do your research to understand what is rare and what is common so you don’t get ripped off by a coin dealer. Keep a good price guide with you at all times, and make sure you aren’t paying more than the investment is worth. Otherwise, you won’t be able to sell it for more than you paid for it.
