    If you had $5,000 and had to invest all today, what would you invest in and why?

      I would give it to GM, quick buk to be made dont you think wink

        I don't think i'm the right one to be asking on GM, but I would "assume" no if I had to guess. I don't believe our government is capable of running part of the auto industry much less anything else.

          Sorry this is some more of my dry humor, GM would be the last firm I would invest in.

      I'll add it up with mine, put it into making this low budget horror flick that's based on a popular urban legend in country. I would make millions - I tell ya!

    Hopefully, I did not start a political debate. lol

      yeah you probably did but it seems that nowadays every thing starts a political debate so who cares, if i had 5,000 dollars i would open a strip club, you can never go wrong with hot chicks, and they bring in alot of money. wink

    I have to seriously think about it, because I'll soon have more than that to invest, wink.

    Maybe more land or real estate.  Maybe Forex.  I do own small shares of Google and PZZA! lol...yeah, Papa John's Pizza.  It was supposed to be a great bargain a while back... It IS the only stock that continues to grow.  At least when I checked my account last.

      Better pizza, better ingredients, Pappa John's!

      On a serious note, great info, Thank You Lita.

        Oh...not really.  But I DO recommend land (very easy).  Or see Iphigenia's hub on Forex.  She evidently turned $2,000 into $25,000.

    I would invest in a different car. My brother has one he wants to sell me and i want it soooo bad but its 4500.

    1. marinealways24 profile image60
      marinealways24posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Lol that wasn't the kind of investment I was talking about, however, still a wise investment if your car is about to break down. If you bought it for $4,500, you still have $500 to invest, what is the plan?

      Car is not an investment. At least not a good investment. smile

        kmackey32posted 8 years ago in reply to this

        And why not. Most people need a car and its better than the one I currently have and cheeper on gas. I drive 30 miles a day to work and its a 4 cylinder appose to me having a 6 cylinder now, and it has less miles so I think its a good investment. So ha..

    Well, investment is supposed to gain a value over time. Car loses the value. smile

      Course, an investment can gain or lose value, though!

      Car might be a good investment for her to make sure she keeps making $$$$.

            You know, I was about to google "illigical" to see what it meant before I thought about the other thread. lol

        Mishaposted 8 years ago in reply to this

        When it loses the value, it is not a good investment - and that is what I told from the start smile

      kmackey32posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Oh depends on what kinda car. Old ones if in great shape can gain value. This car even has hydrolics. I always wanted one of those. :-)

        Or if i buy the car cheeper than what it can be resold for....

  6. Misha profile image74
    Mishaposted 8 years ago

    LOL No problem with you wanting this particular car - whatever hydrolics means. smile

    It is just not an investment smile

    BTW, Ancient cars are becoming a bad investment too...

      Misha, hydrolics is all about the bounce.

    $5000.00 dollars would buy me the tile I want for the master bathroom and living room carpet...... Quite nice!!!!!! My investments have done well thus far, now that extra money would serve for my pleasure...... smile

    It wouldn't take the whole $5,000, so I'll have to think about the rest....but I *know* if I had that much extra $ right now, I'd get lasik eye surgery. I'd love to be able to see this computer screen (and the tv, and the alarm clock when I wake up in the morning, and people's faces when I'm swimming, etc.,) without wearing glasses/contacts.

    that's the kind of "investment" I'm interested in these days - quality of life that I can count on. Growing money? I've never been able to figure that one out.

    I would put a limit order to short Mastercard's security at $170.00 a share; on margin, which is $10k.

    I would invest in some sort of mineral mining or land that had gems.

    Option 1: My brother and his girlfriend have a business idea so probably that if they produce a sound business plan.

    Option 2: Down payment on a very cheap house and then rent it out.

    Option 3: Lobby Congress to give me more money. I could get the lonely hubber bailout.

    I'd invest mine in fierys' film. He's mad as a bucket of frogs (you are you know) but he's full of minerals wink

    I may see a nice return smile

    I think I would invest the $5,000 in Lebron James or Tiger Woods.
