Investors are always looking to put their money in safe and secure markets where possible profits seem more eminent than losses. Unfortunately, investing in stocks, bonds or any other financial markets can be daunting because of the volatility of such markets. 2018 was a highly volatile financial year with the most promising industries fluctuating due to international politics, surging technological innovations and other industry dynamics. Moving forward, the volatility that plagues most investment opportunities should not deter you from investing wisely and leveraging opportunities. The following are three of the most plausible investment opportunities to consider for 2019.
Exchange Traded Funds
These are used in tracking underlying indexes and are traded like stocks. In the last few years, their intraday trading continues to grow in a very promising trajectory for the incoming 2019. An exchange-traded fund is arguably a basket of securities and is very like a mutual fund. You should not rush into buying exchange-traded funds though. You must fast take time to study the longstanding performance of the funds into which you would like to invest. ETFs are often specialized, and utility ETFs show the most promise. This is because the energy sector is experiencing more demand than supply. In fact, with the rise of solar energy reliance and the onset of Power Purchase Agreements, ETFs seem to be a really viable channel for investing in the coming times.
Real Estate Investment Funds
Herein referred to as REITs, Real Estate Investment Funds are the ways to go in 2019 for investors looking to make good profits from their investments. REITs are really great for investing only if careful and detailed analysis guides the investment process. The real estate markets in the country are regaining profitability thanks to burgeoning populations. According to the UDR, Inc. financial records, those who invested in the markets for the last few years enjoyed lucrative dividends from their investments. The dividends, according to the highly profitable REIT, are termed as funds from operations. It attributes its excellent dividends payouts to the increasing number of renters, especially in highly commercial areas.
You should consider investing in REITs that develop properties in popular neighborhoods where corporates and Universities demand huge influxes of workers and students respectively. In such places, housing is difficult because of higher demand forces than the supply forces. This is especially common in more urban areas.
Senior Citizen Care
This is perhaps the most promising industry to invest in for the long term. In fact, it is also the most versatile industry that presents a myriad of elderly-care products that are increasingly growing in demand. According to the World Health Organization, one in every five people will be aged 60 years or older in the next three decades. That’s right; your investments are likely to attract lucrative dividends for the next thirty good years. Additionally, this investment trend is not based on speculations like the one that crushed the real estate market during Bill Clinton’s presidential term.
