Nothing in life is guaranteed except death and taxes.
There’s even fewer guarantees when it comes to investing.
However, investing is not about guarantees, because no one knows what will happen. Sure, you can make predictions, but the reality is that no one knows.
Investing is about the possibilities of what can go right and what can go wrong.
If you’re like me, you focus on what can go right, while acknowledging the risk involved.
I put together a list of four companies and what a $1000 investment would be worth today if you held it for 10 years:
1. Adobe Inc (NASDAQ: ADBE): $6,826
2. Nvidia (NASDAQ: NVDA): $8,000
3. Salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM): $21,000
4. Mercado Libre (NASDAQ: MELI): $23,619
Other than becoming an entrepreneur, there is no other way of getting these kinds of returns on your money. And as an entrepreneur, you’d surely be investing a lot more time and effort in order to generate such returns.
You could have made over 23 times your investment in Mercado Libre. That’s crazy!
Unfortunately we don’t invest in hindsight. If we did, we’d all be fabulously wealthy.
I just want you to understand the possibilities of investing!
