Default Opinion: What is the best investment for the next year?

I spent a few moments today adjusting my 401k and had this thought.

Stocks, mutual funds, commodities, dirt, bitcoin, etc. What do you think is the best investment for the next year?

Watch the market and wait for 2015, say sept/oct. If everything has not bottomed out by then, invest in commodities and dirt/ in your back yard. That's where you need to put your money.

I know a lot of the conspiracy theorists are saying the market will crash. But lets be honest, they are always saying that.

Use your company buy in to get the 10% discount on company stock..........as long as it doesn't drop 10% through the year before you can sell it back off(if you choose to), you profit. Look into it........srsly.

I'm a fan of commodities.

I guess I consider myself a realist, and I like to see my money.

I currently do that with about 5% of my income. I let it sit for a couple years, then withdraw to another account. I am nervous about getting over invested in the stock of the company that employs me. I take the money and invest elsewhere after it sits for a while to avoid penalty.

This year, I'm not sure how I should invest that money.

Are you saying commodities as in precious metals?

Precious metals are not a commodity.

Semi precious is.

I buy and sell a lot of things lately, and seems to be a better investment imo. I invest in items that can sell usually very easily, can use to create more money or items, or have high scrap returns.

If you are in shtf mode, you might as well collect lead, copper, steel, and other things. Lol.

Any advice you could offer would be great. You probably know a lot more about investing than I do.

Find a CFP and pay a small fee for their services.

I figured you had nothing to add to the conversation.

In response to the joke of advice you offered, I have met with many CFPs in the past. I have yet to be impressed by that trade. Most will try to sell the product that nets them a good commission. In their own lives, they spend more time building an image of wealth than actually building wealth.

I don't follow financial advice from poor people.

Thank you for your input, it was worthless.

Enjoy figuring it out on your own then. How to invest is a small part of financial planning but you probably already knew that.
