    Investing abroad. France has a booming IPO market right now. German real estate prices are still depressed, Japanese real estate market finally shows signs of life. The value of European buyouts in 2005 was almost twice that of U.S. buyouts. Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in London shows an increase in the number of companies listed, while NASDAQ shrinks little by little (although AIM is much smaller than NASDAQ). U.S. institutions are searching high and low for European small-cap managers.

    I like your choice of words. . ."boom". . .which, by definition, always implies an imbalance between supply and demand. ..which is why the price for such an asset class becomes outrageously expensive.

    So. . .what's next? Ready?

    Growth stocks (small caps on their way to mid cap and beyond!). . .specific issues. . .and certain sectors. . .and if you don't have any unique insights, then just buy growth stocks. . .individually in a portfolio (8-10 minimum. . .10-15% max. per individual issue). . .or through a mutual fund. Practically every asset class has an ultimate tie in with publicly traded equities. Examples: gold and precious metals - mining/extraction companies. . .real estate - REITS and builders, etc.

    Btw. . .stocks. . .as an asset class. ..are diminishing in supply. . .consider that the current wave of private equity capital availability is REMOVING stocks from the market place. . .and government regulations for publicly traded companies has gotten too difficult and relief will be needed in the near future.

    Equities are also the one asset class that offers the greatest affordability for many investors. . .with widely available information on individual issues. . .and the lowest possible transaction costs (compare what it costs to buy/sell housing!)

    The key though. . .is to position yourself. . AHEAD of the general market. . .which means getting in just before the big (smart?) money arrives and leaving before they do. . .the buy low-sell high advice.

    Btw. . .Investors Business Daily is a great daily publication for learning about all kinds of growth stocks. . .check it out!

    Hope this helps.

    Gold is not a boom! Don't get my wrong gold is a good investment but it is nothing to put all of your money into. Its a safe investment to dodge a bear market and weak dollar. Gold is comparable to bonds, Cd's and high yield bank accounts. Don't get confused by this because most people don't understand that. You have to notice the next big thing before it becomes largely used in society. If something comes out that will replace something that is the major leader in society than you have to jump on it. Sometimes you will be wrong but sometimes you could be rite. Like for instance cellphones replaced home phones. Internet processors replacing conventional dial up methods in businesses. Cysco is a good example. Cd's replacing Tape's, MP3 players replacing prodable cd players. internet replacing librarys... ect You have to figure that one out on your own. When you do figure it out give me a heads up!! Because there are always new things coming out and new opportunities on the horizon.

    It's still real estate. Just moved to China... Property is completely out of control over there. To the point where they are limiting the amount of property a person can own.

    make investments contained in the inventory marketplace presented that you'll arise with the money for to lose the money (there is not any assure right here) genuine resources is pretty possibility-free see you later as you do not overpay marketplace expenditures. Get a GIC at a economic organization oran RRSP and keep on taxes. something without possibility

    Due to the new technology for RFID Chips, and the new Real ID Act, whatever companies make and support this technology will benefit.

    I like the real GOLD nuggets.

    As most gold is mined as very fine dust and tiny nuggets, the larger (over 1oz) nuggets are very rare! Actually they are as rare as large diamonds!

    I would suggest you look into large nuggets!

    To see the 'live' spot NY gold price and some museum size gold nuggets I suggest you visit a great site I found a few months ago. I purchase a few nuggets from them just about a month ago, and not only are they beautiful to look at but in just the last few weeks they have really moved up in value!

    I'm actually saving to purchase others!

    The site is:

    Their museum nuggets are at:

    The most expensive gold is called Crystalline gold. Some great photos of it can be viewed at:

    Gold and other precious metals have risen a lot lately, so I'd say people getting in now will probably be in for a good bloodletting soon.
