Top Investment Picks for 2019

As the new year rolls out, its time to share the annual investment pick contest that I run. This is the 4th year in the running. This is merely meant to be a fun experiment to run and collect top investment picks for 2019 from a community of investors I regularly interact with. There are still some great picks from the 2016, 2017 & 2018 top picks, and I invite you to check them for ideas. Remember that investing is a long game — so, focusing on short intervals like a year is not prudent — even though this contest focuses on one year return. Plenty of older picks may present long term value.

The rules were simple: Pick one investment (stock, bond, fund, currency, commodity, cryptoasset or any other form of investment security), and present a short & quick investment reason behind the pick. I will track this progress over the year and provide quarterly updates on this blog.

Top Investment Picks for 2019

Before I present the picks, I would like to remind the readers that these are simply picks based on current outlook and each investor should not take this as investment advice. If you decide to pursue these investments, please do your due diligence before investing in any of the securities mentioned.

Without further ado, here are the top picks from the investing community for 2019.

Results: 2018 Top Investment Picks

As we welcome the new year, its time to look back and evaluate some of our investment picks/decisions. At the end of 2017, I reached out to the investing community and asked them to pick one investment security as their top pick for the year 2018. Plenty of folks responded and I was happy to compile the list and track them over the year.  The original post can be found here. Picks from previous years are indexed on this page. It is always interesting to see what everyone was thinking a year ago and how the picks played out over the year.

Again, I would like to remind readers that this was meant to simply be a fun exercise and should not be considered investment advise. Please do your own research before investing in any securities.
