Make as much money as you can, for as long as you can.
That should be your motto for 2018. This year is full of promise. Take advantage of it.
Unfortunately, saying that is easier than doing it. The truth is that investing your finances is a risky endeavor. A seemingly good startup today might be a catastrophe tomorrow because circumstances change. For example, Federal regulations, competitors, and technological advances can affect your business.
However, stocks are always a safe bet. Even if you lose some of your money in a bear run, you can never forfeit all of it. Fortunately, the markets are experiencing a bull run right now so it might be an excellent time for you to invest your money in the stock market. Here are the shares that you should consider.
Currently, Facebook is the largest and most influential social media platform worldwide. Almost everyone in the country uses it, and collectively, 2 billion people use it worldwide. Interestingly, the global population stands at 7.6 billion individuals, so the potential growth for Facebook is encouraging. You should also note that this networking giant owns WhatsApp and Instagram, which have 1.3 billion and 800 million users respectively.
This Chinese multinational company trades on the NYSE under the title, ‘BABA.’ Currently, its share price stands at $183.83. Its market capitalization in 2014 stood at $231 billion. In January 2018, it was at $490 billion. That is an increase of over $259 billion over the four years translating to $64.75 billion yearly.
It has operations in over 200 countries, and recently, the World Bank reported that it expected global trade to increase in the coming year. That means Alibaba, which is an online retailer primarily, may see a significant rise in its profits and share value in 2018.
This low-cost airline company from Ireland is on a path to unprecedented growth this year.
For example, it plans to increase its capacity in France in the coming four years. It is targeting 20 million airline passengers annually from this single nation. That is double its current capacity.
Ireland is also an emerging economic giant in Europe so flights to and from Ireland will increase in the coming years. Ryanair will handle many of these travelers.
Now you know which shares you should invest in this year. Take advantage of this information and buy them as soon as you can. Remember, time is money. Purchase these stocks while they are low so that you can reap as much profit as possible.
