Are you interested in investing but don't know exactly which markets and industries to consider? You're not alone – there are many beginners and casual investors who need a lot of advice as well. It never hurts to diversify your portfolio, but you probably already know this. Never put all of your money into one investment. That being said, what are some of the best investment opportunities right now? What are some of the ones you should definitely look into?
Here are a few industries and markets that have the potential to pay off huge over the next several years.
Japanese equity markets have been long shunned. However, they are currently among the cheapest in the world. There is evidence that “Abenomics” (policies put forward by Shinzo Abe) appear to be making some slow, yet real improvements in the country's underlying economy. Also, it is no secret that Japan is a leader in technology, and has been for a couple of decades now. For international investors, medium-sized companies might offer compelling opportunities for stability for the long-term, as the larger companies have to deal with market share loss, and the “fast-growth” companies are more vulnerable to crashes.
Drones and Robotics
While so many people are investing in the companies that sell the drones, you might be better off investing in the manufacturers who make the parts. This is because drone technology is still somewhat in its early stages. Like all electronic products, drones will only evolve and become more advanced over time. To diversify your portfolio a bit more, consider investing in the stores and companies that use drones now, and are financially stable enough to continue using them in the future (Amazon).
ULTA Beauty has experienced a lot of growth over the past 5 years, despite the setbacks of the retail industry. The network of stores keeps expanding considerably. There are strong indicators that this beauty / spa product store provides the best investment opportunities in the retail industry. Not only is ULTA an online retail giant, it also has a network of 1,100+ stores, and that number is expected to grow closer to 2,000 over the next decade. In the first half of 2019, the ULTA Beauty stock gained 42% (NASDAQ) and 17% increase in S&P 500.
Aerie Pharma (AERI)
Why not add pharmaceuticals to your portfolio? This particular company has put a significant amount of focus on the development of treatments for eye diseases such as glaucoma. AERI has already successfully developed two drugs for glaucoma with the first MoA (Mechanism of Action) in nearly two decades. With solid first product launch, limited competition in the glaucoma treatment sector, and strong management execution, everything points to this company being one worth investing in.
