Most people want more money yet most people are not investing in the stock market. Many of them claim they don’t know what to invest in.
I always tell people that they already know some of the best companies of the world to own. They are consumers of these dominant, branded companies.
Visa and Mastercard (PayPal as well) happen to be a few companies that most people intuitively know have been doing quite well and will continue to do well. Visa is up 171% over the last five years while the SPY is up 101%. Visa has outperformed the SPY for almost ten years.
I say just own the obvious companies and go live your life. This is called good investing and it will make you rich over the long-term.
