 If you had $3,000,000 what would you do with it to prolong the value of it?
topic by I'm The Dan - 05-30-2010, 05:47 PM


If you got three million dollars what would you do with it to prolong the value? I've heard some people tell me to throw a mil in an annuity. That would give me $6,000 a month for like 30 years. That would double the value of it, but it takes 30 years to get it. Plus, I am not sure if the annuity adjusts for inflation.

So, I ask what would be the best possible investment of money RIGHT NOW, that would bring in a steady monthly income.

I guess it was too much to expect a logical and well thought out answer when it comes to anything other than sports and music on Boxden.

I'd take a portion of it and invest in undervalued companies that offer high dividend yields in their stock. I'd collect on the dividend and the actual stock (assuming it's a good trade).

Bonds, stocks, annuities, etc... many options.. There's a bunch of different types of bonds you can buy, and yes, one of those types of bonds is a bond that does adjust for inflation (i believe)... but generally they don't and that's what investing is all about, its a risk... the bigger the risk you take (the more you invest) the more you can make on it (or lose)

and like dude said above... franchising is a steady flow of income as well.. If you have enough to open up a well known fast food restaurant in a great location, you'll definitely see a great return on your investment

You gotta know how to run the franchise...you can't just hire people to do the work for you...

Liquor stores and apartment buildings are great. People need a corner store and a lot more people need a place to live

on a serious note from a person studying econ and finance on a grad level: municipal bonds that will pay you a nice interest rate. Municipal bonds hardly default.

Gotta pick a date you want to become financial independent and save/invest accordingly. Invest in things that will produce a constant cash flow and compound interest will take over.

i don't think i'd do much of anything. i'd probably build a better garage and buy a truck and call it a day. other then that just let that #### sit in the bank.

real estate, it gives you the most flexibility. either you can manage ur properties, or have a company do it, but either way, it's liquid enough where u won't take a loss.

and you can do rentals, and rent goes up annually anyway, and if u sec 8 it that's even better b/c it guaranteed money.

It is liquid in a sense, but you could take a loss if you had to sell it in a market down turn for a loss. Real estate isn't as simple as buying a property and selling for a profit in two weeks. You are not guaranteed a profit.
