Higher Risk Investing - and Why None of Them are for Me

On the Hunt for Higher Returns


Stocks in the U.S. look expensive and bond yields remain paltry, leaving investors with a quandary: Where should they go for diversification and a shot at greater returns? Wandering off the beaten path almost invariably leads to taking more risk, seeing bigger swings in value and, sometimes, higher fees. ... Here is a look at five options that are generally available to a broad swath of the public.
  1. Peer-to-Peer Lending
  2. Frontier Markets
  3. Farmland and Timberland
  4. Rental Property
  5. Art and Collectibles
Why off my radar:

  1. Peer-to-Peer Lending: Tried it with low returns
  2. Frontier Markets: Nigeria or Romania? Seriously not for me!
  3. Farmland and Timberland: REITs are an option. I haven't looked into REITs in these categories. Although Weyerhaeuser (WY) pays a 3.6 dividend
  4. Rental Property: REITs are a possibility but I don't care to be a landlord
  5. Art and Collectibles: I know nothing about these.
