The beginning of a new year always comes with an equal amount of fear and excitement. For investors, it’s important to find the right balance of fear and excitement. Too much fear and they’ll miss out on lucrative investment opportunities; too much excitement and they’ll overshoot on every deal. Successful investing relies on more than just current and past information about the market. Investors need to be aware of what’s happening at all times while continually looking for overlooked investment opportunities. An easy to prepare a new year’s investment strategy is reading up on some of the year’s top business predictions.
While hundreds of experts boast their own predictions, most people should look to expert Paul Mampilly for his predictions. Paul Mampilly worked on Wall Street for more than 20 years and made a lot of money doing it. He also made his clients a lot of money. He left Wall Street to guide mainstream Americans to financial superiority. Late last year, Paul Mampilly predicted that more companies would rely on Big Data to capitalize on market opportunities. He also predicted that larger companies would finally look for new ways to relate to modern consumers. A big prediction applies to real estate investors.
Those investors should look out for appreciation rates dropping in value. Currently, appreciation rates are between five and seven percent. Paul Mampilly says they could fall as low as 1.5 percent in 2019. He also made some shocking predictions. Mampilly says that the country’s current political conditions will favor businesses throughout 2019. The Trump administration created many possibilities for businesses, and the Democratic Congress will spend more time fighting him than trying to undo what his administration has accomplished. According to Mampilly, 2019 will be the perfect year for people to start getting into investing. He also predicts that long-term investments will rise in 2019. For the last few years, more investors have looked into ESG, or environment, social, and government, factors. He predicts the number of investors will double.
