Not all stocks, bonds, and mutual funds are good investments. Some are. Some aren't. Much more likely to do well with these investments than the ones discussed on the previous page, however.

You know what's the worst investment of all? Spending time to read a Moo post.

Jesus. You are like the infernal turd that won't flush.

Shoo.

Why don't you both come take a look at my Pink Sheet. Bring cash, and come alone.

I am generally against the whole need to rationalize trivial purchases.  Really liking something is reason enough.

Because there are probably a few - a few - comic books and bottles of wine out there that might make for a good investment. But I don't know that. So I won't touch that subject.

Now belts... truly do make for terrible investments.

Some comic books have incredible resale value.  

 

Belts are good for wearing around your waist.  I think that Alpha-M would say that they are also a great investment in yourself.

There are a lot of people who like to diversify their investment strategy outside of traditional equity & fixed income.

One of the primary investment vehicle for Americans is real estate (invest in their home equity). Is that a safe/good investment? It's not very diversified, that's for sure.

Lots of people with quite a bit of $ to invest, look for alternative asset classes to add low correlation assets to their mix - gold is the classic one, art is another one, wine is definitely an investment asset class (there are people on this very forum who are either wine investment experts or actually run wine funds). Watches is not an investment class as well developed as art or wine yet, but there is absolutely an element of investment and speculation in some WIS circles. There are flippers, there are people who develop relationships with the boutiques to get first dibs on hot Ltd Editions, etc....

It's clearly not a "safe" investment vehicle on its own but I don't see why it wouldn't be one asset class in an overall investment portfolio for someone who either knows what he is doing/buying or is well counseled on the matter. It is not delusional. I've essentially be wearing watches for free since I bought my first watch in 1999. Every single watch I own, I could sell now for more than I paid for (maybe not inflation-adjusted), which means that they're on free loan to me until the next owner.

Their iPhone tends to drop calls, but it sure does keep my pocket warm.

You could probably make a shitload of money out of selling records if you know what to look for.

 

I mean, you've got stuff like Loefah's Woman/Midnight that drops a limited ed release of 300 copies for ~$10 that's selling on the secondary market for at least $300 now :/

I hear a pair of classic black oxfords are a good investment.

@wurger would be the man to see about black oxford options trading.
