I'd guess the answers might vary by state.

No rental units for me - tenants have way too many rights, and the chances of getting stuck with non-paying renters is too risky.

Storage units - that sector is almost built out and overcapacity here. I kick myself in the ass for not putting up some storage units 5 years ago. Mailbox money, baby!

Stock market - I'm pulling back and getting more conservative, since I'm getting close to full retirement age.

That leaves land. Under the right circumstances, I'd throw some money there. (Actually just did not too long ago.)

Via The Stock Markets you can invest in the various forms of Real Estate.


The stock markets are beginning to look a little more optimistic with inflation indicators beginning to turn down with the exception of eggs.

All depends on the FED and what further actions they take including no action for a while which would be good for the markets.

According the the article:

Exercise Equipment
Consumer Staples
Coffee and Tea
Tupperware
Cosmetics
Movies, TV and Video Games
Baby Products
Kitchenware
Pet Care
Candy
Auto Parts

Based on that people stay home, cook at home, have kids and pets, and fix their own cars.

Much of our country and what passes for investments are nothing but debt piled upon debt.

We have a massive derivative bubble that will burst sooner rather than later. TPTB are very busy convincing people everything is ok. A con game requires confidence. They will print until they cannot print any longer, then create a crisis that makes the masses beg for CBDC. It will all be blamed on the bad Putin.

My excess money is in land, lead, powder, primers, Gold, Silver, food, tools.

Like much of the eastern world, I am actively de-dollarizing.

I will keep enough cash to survive on. What I can thrive on will be out of the dollar as best I can.

At 65, I am not worried about hitting any home runs with risky stuff.

What would I invest in? I'm actively investing in memories while I'm still young enough to make them. They will help sustain me in my later years. My house is paid off and retirement is mostly funded. I'd upgrade to another home if it came with hunting land. These strategies might not be appropriate for the next person. Everyone's situation is a bit different.

People...

I invest in the good men and women of my Community...

The dividends of good will, honor and fair exchange far exceed "investments"

-----------------

As for monetary investments... I really have no idea...

HARD COMMODITIES... PHYSICALITY HELD... if you have a particular expertise.


If you are not actively engaging EVERY enemy you encounter... you are allowing another to fight for you... and that is cowardice... plain and simple.

About a year ago I started believing all the doom and gloom.

Super inflation is coming, money will be worth nothing, etc...


So in a mild panic I spent 2/3 of our savings on down payment on a 4 bedroom house down the street. It is NOT a money maker but it's helping my sister in law/kids out and I feel better sticking the cash into that house versus the stock market. Land is really hard to come by around here otherwise I would have liked to went that route.

And we got in at 5.25% so not a terrible deal even if we overpaid by maybe 10%.



Also spent a chitload on shooting/defense related products so good there!

As for RE...

Not for me anymore... Sold everything but three.

I think RE has some troubles coming... "depending on location" of course.

Paper gold that has no gold to back it up.

People who sell gold as an investment are using this idea and have been for practically forever to sell it to people who don't understand how futures/derivatives markets work. There are always going to be more paper contracts vs actual physical commodity whether it be gold, wheat, cattle, etc. Its how the system is supposed to work.

I just did a search on "not enough gold to back paper markets" and got pages of hits. This is "common knowledge", so that in and of itself disqualifies it as some kind of trading edge. The old saying of what "everyone" knows being worthless comes to mind.

We bought raw land 25 years back that we couldn't really afford but made the necessary changes in our lifestyle to make it work.

Received our 'new & improved' tax valuation for our place in Virginia last month for 2023.
Simultaneously sold 1/5 of the acreage at 600% profit after 25 years of owning, hunting and playing on it.
That will keep the tax bill at 2022 levels.
The developer will be building at or near $1M homes on what he purchased from us and the adjoining property he already owned[some of which we sold him 15 years back @ 400% profit].

So now we are sitting on 60 acres yet that will adjoin those homes/lots.

Making 4% in the checking account sounds pretty good until the Fed gets out of the way so markets can actually work.

200% agree...
We bought raw land 25 years back that we couldn't really afford but made the necessary changes in our lifestyle to make it work.

Received our 'new & improved' tax valuation for our place in Virginia last month for 2023.
Simultaneously sold 1/5 of the acreage at 600% profit after 25 years of owning, hunting and playing on it.
That will keep the tax bill at 2022 levels.
The developer will be building at or near $1M homes on what he purchased from us and the adjoining property he already owned[some of which we sold him 15 years back @ 400% profit].

So now we are sitting on 60 acres yet that will adjoin those homes/lots.

Might be time to sell it ALL now if the market is bearing such ROI.
In my experience, more property line neighbors mean more hunters. Uninvited and unwanted.
Headache.

Blacksburg/Christiansburg ain't no sleep little town no more...

I hunted the Teal farms in Riner for a few years... LOL

Not no more.
My Granddad retired from Va Tech. He remembered 1000's of acres of mountain land East of Blacksburg going toward Roanoke being sold for taxes on the courthouse
steps. Of course he didn't have any money.

Plan is to sell down to around 10+/- acres over the next 5-10 years.
Keep the view-shed clear and eventually turn that house into an overnite rental.
We both have elderly parents with health issues keeping us here currently.
With the next sale we plan on purchasing a second home in Tenn which would become our 'base'.

Solid plan, R! Those thinking about getting into real estate investment should take heed. A clearly defined event horizon has to be a big part of the planning. It's not just throw down a check at closing time right now.

Slump usually follows lackluster earnings reports.

It isn't money. It is currency. A derivative of money.

Except our currency (the Dollar) is a derivative of a derivative. No real money to be seen for the vast, vast majority of Dollars. In other words, we have dishonest currency. Been that way a long time...and fully realized in 1971.

If you are comfortable with that, go for it! Just try not to be 100% in derivatives of derivatives of derivatives. smile

Stocks is the only answer currently with the fiscal crisis we are in now... And they are not really that attractive. I'm just buying a chunk of something that I wouldn't mind holding for years, and if it goes up a few points in a month, I sell it and wait for another one... Land has gone up so much that I cannot justify buying anymore - I have sold all mine in the last 2 years for obscene prices. When the music stops, you better have your hand on a chair...

Financial whizkids...how 'bout fire resistant chicken/egg production plants? Or just fire resistant food processing plants in general. Seems like these places are tinder boxes waiting to blow up. Who knew? Or how about Nomex butcher aprons? Meanwhile the fbi is checking into the price of Taylor Swift tickets.

Good mix of stocks and bonds, been through this a number of times in the past 60 years, always came out better when things settled down.
I have fun buying some silver and gold. Just a nice sound of the coins clanking in your hands, they all look good too.

Most recent move was a CD at 3.8 short term. Best thing I am holding Transocean Drilling. Up over 400 % since I bought it. If Interest rates would rise a bit I would probably move most to fixed.

You can get 4.17% in a fidelity account . The ticker is SPRXX. Take it out any time. It will likely go to 4.5% after Mr. Powell speaks tomorrow. Now days I would just go with the 4.5% after tomorrow. Before Powell starts cutting next year I will put money in Corporate bonds, but not too much. Bonds might do very well after that. I will be happy with 5 or 6% yield with a little price rise and low volatility . If prices go down, I want to buy a boat ( starcraft Freedom 180T) and maybe some land in Upper Michigan.

Just fwiw, I just recently got several FDIC insured CD’s at 4.6% via my Fidelity account.

I hope so. I’m trying to buy a beach house, so hope that scheit crashes and all the “remote working” liberal programmers have to fire sale and move back to the city to work.

Unless your net worth is over 11 million dollars, there is no gift tax on any amount at this point

I bought a fair bit of Tesla at $113 last month...

It is $173 now.

53% return in a month is a fairly decent return I guess.

According to the IRS it’s $17,000 for 2023 to as many people as you want and same for your wife if filing jointly meaning you can give $34,000 to the same person, for example.

I’d like to know more about what you’re talking about and if there is an approved way to give unlimited without tax implications.

I’m a firm believer in you can’t time the market. But a correction is coming. Bank it.

saying that a correction is coming is like saying California is going to be hit by a earthquake. Sure as sun rise, BUT when?

I agree, this is a bull trap in a bear market that isn't finished yet.

Until 1994. I lost so often while trading stock, I thought doing the opposite of what ever I was doing would get an investor rich.

I was holding stocks for an average of 5 months.

Then I switched to holding MSFT for 5 years, I started making money instead of losing money.

I have been in a major position in GOOG since 2004 and a major position in AMZN since 2012.

Over 10 years AMZN has beat GOOG, AAPL, META, and MSFT....but getting nowhere over the last 3 years.

I know day traders and future traders... that seems like racetrack betting to me.

This is never not true, a meaningless prediction (correction coming). But “yes” nobody can time the market.

But to the OP if you have time on your side continually purchase (dollar cost average) VTSAX and you’ll do just fine over the long haul. And mix in based on your risk tolerance some element of a bond fund and perhaps some real estate.

Almost no one makes predictions like that time bound, and those who do are almost always wrong.

Michael Burry had/has a big following because he made a great prediction and a lot of money in the 2008 market. He has more or less been publicly predicting a crash since then, and while there hasn't been one of that scale his fund did have some pretty excellent returns last year by just being bearish, not crashish.

I think a lot of the crash stuff is just people trying to one up the next guy. Clickbait type stuff.

A lot of people predict 10 of the last 3 of them, so they're always right some of the time. Nobody really knows for sure. For every market transaction there is someone on the other side going the other way on it.

It’s Not always about greed although many claim that the markets are driven solely by fear and greed.

Rothschild also said that, “Many have lost everything trying to get that extra 1% while few have gone broke accepting 1% less”.

Unless your net worth is over 11 million dollars, there is no gift tax on any amount at this point

Positive. Gift.

Do it ASAP as the Biteme administration will be changing the rules to butfugg the people soon

According to the IRS it’s $17,000 for 2023 to as many people as you want and same for your wife if filing jointly meaning you can give $34,000 to the same person, for example.

I’d like to know more about what you’re talking about and if there is an approved way to give unlimited without tax implications.


Check with your CPA or attorney

Unless your net worth exceeds 11 million, there is no gift tax to the giver and no tax to the receiver. A basis is established for property value at the time of giving so that any capital gains can be calculated if the property is sold.

I would think that applies if you’re gifting cash as well

That’s the way it was in 2022 at least. I know first hand

There is an annual exclusion, and a lifetime exemption. Reporting of the lifetime exemption is done on a 709.
Two different things, somewhat linked, as exceeding the annual exclusion requires reporting an update to the 709. It follows for a lifetime.

Many thanks and I’ll run the traps on that with my CPA pretty soon.

There surely have been anomalies and variations from stated regulations in the past like Baby Bush’s exemptions on Long Term Capital Gains back in 2008. That may still be in effect, not sure.

Then there was Trump’s move on RMD’s a few years ago during the Covid pandemic that allowed folks to not take their RMD without penalty or if they did take it, they were allowed to put the total amount back into their retirement accounts before a certain date, again without penalty.

Thanks again for your reply.

I'm investing in my kids - their houses. Cut out the mortgage guys. They pay me back monthly. If we don't need it in the meantime, it's their forced savings account when we croak. Wish I had bought Exxon/Mobil when Blackrock was driving them out of the oil business. That paid off splendidly for someone I know. You can bet on Reality long term and the dollar going down. That's all I know, with no idea how to exploit it. Real Estate is a cash cow - in the Tax Collector's barn. At least it's tangible in limited supply.

I’ve never not done well on a real estate purchase. Some luck, I’m sure, that I’ve not bought at the peaks. I’d never want my kids owing me money. Seems like it would change the dynamic. I’d always want the kids to be free to tell me off. Not saying wouldn’t work for others, though.
