Five Investments That Will Be Worth Your Time in 2014


In 2014, you may be poised to have your best financial year yet if you make smart investments. With the sea of stocks and real investment opportunities abounding, it is important to be smart with your money in 2014. Analyzing the debt-ratio and annual profits of a business is just a start. In addition, you should also consider other factors like the company’s history and whether the company offers a dividend. Here are five investments that you can consider as part of a winning strategy for 2014.
1. Real Estate
In a recent letter addressed to shareholders, billionaire Warren Buffet spoke on the practical benefits offered by real estate investing. He recounted one of his first investments, which included a small farm in Nebraska in the letter. He also recounted the road to making one of his successful investments in New York City real estate. His key point was to consider investing in real estate for its long-term benefits. In 2014, you may benefit from investing in real estate that offers benefits for the rest of your lifetime and not just for short periods of time.
2. Philip Morris International (PM)
Despite the implementation of anti-smoking laws throughout states, Philip Morris International (PM) is poised for growth in 2014. The reason this company is likely to succeed is due to the fact that it sells its tobacco products throughout the world. Philip Morris also yields a dividend of $3.76 per share. For dividend investors, this stock is a smart option to add to a portfolio for its consistent returns.
3. Apple (AAPL)
Apple continues to exhibit strong growth rates. Even though the cost of one share may be too expensive for you to afford, you should consider using an automatic investing tool to purchase portions of the stock. The company also recently announced a 15 percent increase in its dividend. Although many people are giving on on Apple, wall street is optimistic for Apple growth.
4. Verizon Communications
Verizon currently offers an annual dividend of $2.12. The continued growth of this power player will likely only continue in 2014.
5. Investing in Jets
Similar to real estate, many people are finding success purchasing jets and participating in private jet rental. There are a variety of ways to do business this way from renting your jets by the hour to leasing them to a small airline long term. This option isn’t for everyone because it does have overhead costs like jet maintenance.
6. McDonald’s
In a difficult economy, McDonald’s sales continue to thrive. The affordability of its fast food makes McDonald’s a popular choice amongst those on a budget. The stock has a share price of $96.02 and annual dividend of $3.24.
These stocks and investment opportunities are sure to grow in 2014. This may be the year for you to take your income to soaring heights through smart investment choices. You may also use this year as time to create your long-term investment strategy.
