I don’t like investing in the stock market. I know in my own business, if I start selling stock, it’s probably because I don’t think it’s going to do as well in the future as it’s done in the past. I think that’s the thought process behind most companies that IPO. I also think that once you have a founder is no longer running or involved in the business, it’s only a matter of time until the company dies.
I have been thinking more and more that I would like to invest my funds into a capital intensive business that I can control and manage myself. I spent a year building a stock program that goes far beyond the capabilities available to any retail investor and goes beyond what I think a lot of hedge funds and investment funds are using. But I still don’t want to be in the stock market. I would rather have something I can control myself and build upon.
Maybe it will be something involving real estate and expensive heavy equipment that will hold its value and create true value to customers.
