I know the title is kind of harsh but think about it:
Stocks are ridiculously overpriced. I’m not saying they can’t go up for another year or two but that’s hardly what I’d call a decent investment. A short-term speculative opportunity perhaps but nothing more.
Real estate is also ridiculously overpriced in a lot of countries (especially Canada and Australia but lots of other countries as well).
Gold/silver? We’re in a downtrend and generally speaking, trying to catch a falling knife is a bad idea.
Bonds? The yields are ridiculously low and not the least bit in line with the *real* risks.
I’m not saying domains are perfect but compared to the alternatives, they sure look more attractive right about now.
At least we’re pioneers, our industry isn’t even 20 years old.
Plenty of upside in my opinion.
Sure, as time passes, it will become harder but believe me, we’re still in the early days.
Therefore, even if you’re not a very calculated domain investor and overpay for a good domain, I’m convinced you’ll still make a very nice return as long as you’re willing to hold and are reasonably good at understanding why some domains are great and others aren’t.
For example, let’s assume you’re Joe the investor and buy 5 very good domains but overpay by 50%.
I’m convinced that let’s say 5 years down the road, those domains will be worth *considerably* more. So even if you overpaid when buying them, their value 5 years down the road more than makes up for that.
Whereas with stocks for example, even if you’re a great stock picker and manage to make good purchases today, I’m not sure your portfolio will look all that great if you hold for 5 years.
That’s just my perception.
I didn’t even provide any studies/data/whatever to back up my claims.
Maybe in a future post, why not.
What I’m trying to say is this: in my opinion, domaining is one of the few genuinely attractive investment opportunities we have.
