The best return on investment ideas are always the simplest. We are of the sincere belief that if you can’t easily understand it, you should not invest in it. There are exceptions, but as a firm and fast rule, this makes sense, because, as an investor you have to understand how the investment makes money and thereby giving you a return. Obviously if the investment is not transparent about how it will make an income, then you should pass.
Some of the best return on investment possibilities come in the form of start ups. New business ideas are always coming up from fresh young entrepreneurs and assessing these opportunities objectively can be very lucrative. These investments are usually small but they can be the next Microsoft, or the next IBM
You have to understand the market to invest in start up and that does not mean being part of it for 30 years. It just means having the nous to investigate the gap in the market the start up is targeting and verify the demand.
Another good idea for your best return on investment often comes in the most unexpected places. Generating returns of a remarkable nature are not as hard as one would expect. Often the trick is following the investment cycle of the economy. The cyclic nature of a real estate boom to the shares boom to the commodities boom is fairly obvious to observe and if you are aware of these cycles, you can ride each boom as it comes, always getting amazing returns just collecting the choice upward swing following the bulls.
