15 BEST INVESTMENTS of 2020-2021
Hello alexers. And welcome back to the sunday motivational, video, you've been waiting for for so long. 2020. Has been one of the most interesting, years, to say the least, that we've experienced. In our lifetimes. And since your interest is in making the most out of this period, we're about to break down for you the best performing, asset, classes, and industries, of 2020. And what we're betting our own money on to perform, well as we go into 2021.. Six months ago we made a video about stocks we purchased, right as the pandemic, hit and those of you who followed along have seen massive, returns. If with that video we were looking to capitalize. On this unique opportunity, and make as much money as quickly as we can, in this video we're taking a more medium-term. Approach. The worst thing you could do is to sit on the sidelines, and expect, things to get better for yourself, without even playing the game. Welcome, to, alex.com. The place where future billionaires. Come to get inspired. If you're not subscribed. Yet you're missing, out. So let's take a look at the 15, best investments. Of 2020. And 2021. Number one. Real estate. We said it once and we'll keep saying it real estate, is the best investment. Medium, and long term, many of you are probably waiting for property prices to go down while smart money has already begun acquiring, properties, the pandemic, has forced some businesses, to sell premium properties, that they wouldn't have let go otherwise, at discounted. Or fair prices. Here's a golden, rule of real estate. The profit, is made when you acquire, a property. And the pandemic. Proved to be a once-in-a-lifetime. Opportunity, to acquire, undervalued. Great properties. 2021. Is probably, going to be another great year for real estate prices, since interest, rates are so damn low and the businesses, are still hungry for capital, to keep the lights on which is why they're willing to sell off some of their assets. Be on the lookout. Number two. Gold, and silver. We love every opportunity, to hedge against the government. For those of you unfamiliar, with the term hedge, it means to make an investment, that protects, you against a financial, loss. Basically, we invest, both in the stock market, and in alternative, assets, like gold and bitcoin. If the stock market does well and governments, do their job our wealth increases. If the government, starts printing money like crazy, then the price of bitcoin, and gold goes up our wealth increases, once again. In the long term hedging your investments, is a great way to secure, and grow your wealth, the average return of gold in 2019. Was 18. In 2020. The year-to-date, returns, of gold are close to 30 percent. Silver, is also at 30. If you timed your purchase with the march collapse, as many investors, did, you would have seen even higher returns. As long as governments, keep printing new money alternative, assets, will be an incredible, investment. With 2021. Around the corner we're more than likely to see another round of financing, trying to, revitalize. The economy. Allowing, for even more opportunity. For growth. Number three. Electric. Cars. Electric, cars have been the biggest, biggest, winner of the stock market, despite, the news despite, the industry, pushing against, it despite, the big oil money, people are betting, long term on electric, cars and the process, results, in incredible, short-term, gains. Here are the numbers. Tesla's. Year-to-date, returns, are 650. Percent. If at the beginning of 2020, you invested, 10 thousand dollars in tesla, stock, you would now have over 65. 000. Mind. Blown. Do you want to have your mind blown even more. Okay, then, have you heard of neo. Neo is basically, china's, version of tesla, they're the biggest, electric car manufacturer. In china, and the most likely to win the ev market there, neo's, year-to-date, returns, are, 1250. Percent. If at the beginning of 2020, you invested, 10 000. In neo stock, you would now have over, 125. 000. If one was paying attention to what's happening in the electric car vehicle space, you could have become a millionaire, in 2020. With a 70, to 80, 000, investment. And this year, isn't even over yet. Number four. E-commerce. And consumer. Staples. When the pandemic, hit every small business, worried about survival. But what did the consumers. Do, they stocked up on everything they could get their hands on, anyone, remember the 2020, toilet paper wars. Pepperidge, farm remembers. Remember when the government, gave everyone, free money, where did that money go, people spent it on amazon, and their large chain grocery, stores.
Amazon's. Year-to-date, returns, are 72, percent. Target is at 40 percent, walmart, at 30. And this has been the case, everywhere, around the world. Number five. Bitcoin. And crypto. When the pandemic, hit and the government, started printing money like crazy our focus, turned to crypto. We were not the only ones to understand, what's happening and more and more of our connections, started reaching out because they needed help with getting started, even, unsophisticated. Investors, wanted in on this, we've had our eye on the crypto space since 2015. And have been active investors, since, 2017.. We've used our own experience, to teach our inner circle what blockchain. Is how bitcoin, works, where and how to purchase your crypto, and more importantly. To store it safely, as a long-term, investment. As of making this video we're close to 3x, in our investment, we made just seven months ago. During the initial lockdown, we found ourselves, having to explain, over and over again the entire, process, to different people, so we decided, to do something about it, everyone, should have access to this kind of specialized. Knowledge, but explained, in a simple and easy to understand, way from someone they can trust. We put everything on hold and began working on a secret project, called, bitcoin. Essentials. Everything, we've been teaching our family and close friends has been structured, and put into a premium learning experience. For you the aluxers.

Bitcoin, right now and make 2020, the year you've decided to invest in your future, or you could just sit on the sidelines.
We'll See you on the inside aluxers. Number six, renewable. Energy. If the electric, car is any indication, to where money is going the renewable, energy space as a whole will be one of your safest, bets, go green etfs, have a year-to-date, return, close to 100. Basically, doubling your money, everything, that has to do with solar, and wind is booming. You've probably seen campaigns, even in your own country where your main energy providers. Are boasting, about how much money they're investing, in renewables. This is where the puck is going and as technology, gets better and better, the higher the scalable, adoption, will be. Number seven. It. And big tech. This has been the biggest, year in tech, the entire, world ran a massive experiment, in their ability to work from home, in just a few months this new company called, zoom, crushed, skype, a company that had been the main video conferencing, software, since we can remember. People purchased, products, online, food delivery became the main revenue source for restaurants, and we all consumed, more content, than ever before. If you timed it right you could have literally, purchased, any big tech company stock and you could have seen, thirty to fifty percent returns. Netflix, is at fifty percent, apple, at sixty percent. Google, facebook, microsoft. All around, thirty to forty percent. The biggest, one to come out the gate was nvidia. They're the biggest, graphic card manufacturer. And their year-to-date, return, is at 125. Percent. Number eight. Pharma, and healthcare. During a medical pandemic, as you would expect, pharma, and everything connected, to the field, blossomed. Every big company, started competing, in a race to get the first vaccine, and we already have three big winners. Pfizer, moderna, and astrazeneca. Are already on the cusp of mass production with their own version, the biggest winner out of the three is moderna, with a year-to-date, return of 450. Although this is an extraordinary. Result, there's no way you would have been able to tell that moderna, would be the one to crack it unless you had a magic, crystal, ball. Number nine, travel, and hotel, stocks. If you remember our stock video, you know that this is one of our favorite bets and it paid off great so far, basically, the entire, hotel industry has been shattered by the coronavirus. Situation, with stock prices, tanking. We picked up all the big chains for cheap, our bet is that once the vaccine, becomes largely available, we'll see a steady increase in tourism. As more and more people look forward to a new holiday after all of this quarantine. Hilton, hilton grand vacations. Marriott, and mgm, provided, us with over 100. Return. Each, since we purchased. We were also betting long term on airlines, but the growth hasn't been that impressive. Right now we are waiting on the airbnb, ipo, and we'll probably, get some of that as well since some of our own properties, are monetized. Through them as short-term, rentals. We're pretty confident that six to 12 months from now everything, travel related, will see a jump as travel picks, up. Number 10. Index, funds.
Index, Funds have been our go-to recommendation, for what we call lazy investors. Do you want your money to grow consistently, without touching it well go with an index, fund, the s p 500, is an index fund bringing together the top 500, companies in the us. Basically, you invest in all of them at once, it's a great reflection, of the us economy, as a whole. Here's the thing, for the past 30 years the s p has consistently, delivered, over 10 percent, yearly returns, and this year is no different. The markets, crashed, in march earlier this year with the s p dropping, almost 30 percent. At that point, everyone, who was smart, started buying. By the end of august, all the loss had been recovered, and now it's going back up, even if you took the hit and invested, in the s p 500, before covid, as of making this video, you would still see plus 15. Returns. The thing is not many people know how to leverage, these types of events in their favor. We've learned how to monetize, financial, crises, from a book called unshakable. By tony robbins. It works great as an extension, to, money, master the game, you can go right now to. Alux.com. Freebook, and if it's your first time signing up you can get unshakeable. As an audiobook, for free, thanks to our friends at audible who are kind enough to support our community. Number 11. Energy, and petrol. We talked earlier about where the puck was going to renewables. But this has been an incredible year for where the puck is. Once petrol tanked we were ready to buy it and it proved to be a great choice. Marathon. 60. Laredo, 80. Murphy, 100. Matador, 270. Returns. Truth be told we wish we would have done more, at the end of july we picked up general electric, and four months later we're up by over 50 percent. Everything, fuel wise we see as a strong, medium-term. Investment. We're being strategic, and regularly, selling a percentage, of our high return, stocks, and shifting, that excess, capital into index, funds for safe keeping. Number 12. Luxury. And fashion. Based on the profile, of our business you wouldn't expect us to ignore the luxury industry, would you, rest assured, we didn't. What we love about the luxury markets, is they're not as affected, as everyone else, sure, there was a drop in march in april, and sure we loaded up on everything we wanted to and then we waited. As we expected, the markets, bounced back. While the likes of coty and ralph lauren provided steady 30. Plus returns. Tapestry. The company, formerly known as coach you know their products, has been the real winner with over 110. Returns, although historically, we've seen bigger returns, in the tech space, we always recommend, diversifying. Your portfolios. Into industries, you have an interest in that way you know about the companies, who are struggling, and those who are coming up. Number 13.. Banks. We dislike, banks as much as everyone else one of the main reasons why we invest in crypto, but in the times of pandemics. Banks are usually the first ones, saved by the government, so if there's an opportunity, to park some cash for short to medium term we'll take it, we like banks because they also pay dividends, regularly, so it's a form of passive, income in addition to the growth of the stock price, for example, the biggest investment, in our banking sphere, is held by citigroup. The return on our stock investment, has been around 40. But what might be interesting for you to know is they also pay dividends, four times a year and the rate is zero point five one dollars, per share owned where the share price is around sixty dollars. You buy a couple hundred shares to hold and the dividends. Pay for your new iphone. Number fourteen. The companies, that make the products, you use and love. You're here because you're looking for advice on where to invest your money. Our best take on this, look around, you, what are you buying, and what products, do you love. Then, buy stocks in those companies. We get our coffee from starbucks, so we purchased, some stock.
We Wear nike, adidas, and under armour so we bought them, we love tesla, so we put some money with elon. All the tvs in our rental apartments, are lg's. So we purchased, lg, stock as well. Love your playstation. 5, buy some sony stock. Every time we spend our own money on a product and end up loving it we make sure to invest in that company as well, investing, in your favorite companies, has become incredibly, easy. Now we're not paid by any of these companies, but you should check out robinhood. Revolut. Etoro. Vanguard. Fidelity. E-trade. And so on, you can google and pick any one of them and they'll get the job done. Just, never go full wall street bets with your finances. And you should do all right, and if you guys still find it difficult to start let us know in the comments, and we'll make a step-by-step. Course into how we do it. Number 15. Our most, recent, investment. Palantir. We get this kind of question, all the time, hey what did you guys buy recently, what's the inside, scoop, the truth is there isn't an inside, scoop we're just paying close attention to the market and taking decisive, action when we believe something feels right based on all the experience, we've learned in the past 15 years. But more than two years ago we made a video about peter thiel which barely got 30 000 views. Peter thiel co-founded, paypal, with elon musk and is one of the smartest, and diligent, businessman, we know, he's one of our personal heroes. After the successful, sale of paypal. Elon musk, started tesla, and spacex. While peter went on to invest in a new company called facebook, and on the other side, build palantir. Which was operated, privately, until this year, they went for an ipo, in september, and we were excited, to be part of the action. The open price was 9.50. A share and as of today it's trading, north of 30 dollars a share giving us a 3x, return, in one month and depending, on how things go we could easily see the price going up to 100. Per share in the next 12 months, with peter teal at the helm we can't wait to see what happens. This is what they mean when they say knowledge, and timing, are more valuable, than money, and why we do these daily videos, on a variety, of topics, because the more you learn and understand, the market, the easier, it becomes, to be part of it. Sometimes. Not paying attention, is costing you money, which brings us to today's question. If you had one hundred thousand dollars to invest, right now, what would you invest, in, we're really curious, to see how our community, would do it and who knows you might inspire, other aluxers. As well, we can't wait to read the comments, on this one. Now for those of you still watching, of course you're getting a bonus. Invest. In yourself. Yes yes we know it sounds cliche. You hear people say all the time, an investment, in yourself, pays the best dividends. But what does it even mean to invest, in yourself. There are three, big segments, you can focus on if you're looking to grow financially.
First, Invest, in your physical, and mental health, if you're not healthy, you won't be able to do anything else and in a year like 2020. Those who have previously, invested in their health have seen it pay off big time, it is literally the difference between, death and staying, alive. You're also spending more time inside, so your mental health needs to be on point for you to be able to overcome, situations. Like the one we find ourselves, in, this is why we built mind mastery, in the first place, it addresses. This issue specifically. Second. Invest, in relationships. The people you know make all the difference, in moments of crisis. They save you money and time and help you grow when otherwise, you would feel stuck. Invest, in growing, and maintaining, your connections. Thirdly. Invest, in what you know, understand. And are able to do, if it's in your mind nobody can take it away from you, whether or not you're going to be successful, in life depends on how much you know and are able to deploy, it's that simple. Either, you know how to do it and then do it or you're left on the sidelines. This is why we spend, so much time getting our courses, right, they leave you with a skill you can monetize, for the rest of your life, to invest in yourself, means to spend, time, and, yes. Money to make sure you've got a better shot at hitting the window of opportunity, when it presents, itself. We said it in the past, and it's the truth. Your life is cheap, because you think investing, in yourself, is expensive. A single, idea. A single, decision. Can change the rest of your life, the worst thing you can do is to make no decision, at all because that's when you lose by default. You're watching this because you're a true a laxer, and we're thankful for your continuous, support, so maybe this is a great opportunity, for us to give something back. We really believe you'll benefit from bitcoin, essentials, so if you go to alux.com. Bitcoin, on the checkout page, use the promo code, first. The first, 100, will get 100.
