    I want to know what business is going to have success in upcoming months or in the next year and why. My guess is Ford is going to make a comeback with the their bailout.

    I would think that any future development in the economy will be accompanied by changes in infrastructure, since this will also create jobs. While Ford might make a comeback, transportation itself will change in the future.

    I would put my money in steel, alternative energy [like coal] and health.

    Well taken samcdkey. I wish I had some money to invest in infrastructure, alt energy, and health, because thats exactly where I would go. Infrastucture specifically is going to boom our economy with tons of new jobs, which leads to a stronger middle class I believe. Any other opinions ?

    I wasn't joking. IMHO "infrastucture specifically" is far too vague.

    Thats why I said steel and coal. Although, if electronics dip, as it seems they will, then thats one more area that will open up for innovation.

    I believe Steel and coal should be bought now, and electronics should wait a year. People still need money to buy electronics.

    Land would be another good investment right now. Property values are pretty good.

    Gold might be iffy, it depends on how far the dollar will fall. It may be kept afloat artificially depending on how much the Americans still import from the Chinese. If Chinese imports to the US fall, they will have no reason to hold up the dollar.

    I Think you are gonna see a big push in green products. The big question is how long is that gonna last. Green energy and products are nothing new then the next dot.com or real estate craze. Everyone i know buys green products because they think its helpful to the enviroment. As far as infrastructure yeah that going to be big in developing nations come to africa and you can see the possibilities to be had here, if you dont mind all teh civil wars. Healthcare will be big as the baby boomers retire and demand to live forever. But go with the basics, like others said steel, oil, gas, gold(not so sure).

    Yeah my philosophy about hot stocks is once it becomes a fad you already can predict the stagnation. Green Products and Energy would have been good about 1 year ago that wher you would have seen the most gains. If you want to find something that gonna make money quickly try to pick the upcomming consumer trend and ride it but that a lot harder then people think. Safe bet is to buy stocks in companies that are good at what they do. Or you can buy house in Detroit for as little as 500 dollars and then quick fix and flip for some cash but it is detriot.

    I think food will become more scarce in the future so I would probably put my money in a large-scale food manufacturer, if I knew of one.

    Maybe the best bet would be not to bet at all. The global economic situation is such a mire of interconnections that some disaster or crisis will trigger another crises in the other side of the world. Buying stocks is the same as gambling albeit a more regulated one. Unless one is a guru of the stock market, then maybe we should just keep our monies in the bank.

    If someone had a golden stock in mind they damn sure wouldnt announce it over an internet forum, they would keep it secret and invest themselves.

    Wait if this is true why are people selling books that say get rich quick, make millions in the stockmarket Yeah there are no magic formulas its random luck.

    Who is to say that your money is safe in the bank... look at Northern Rock in the UK, bank went under run on bank. Yes the Market is more a global one and what happens in China can affect us here and vise versa but the stock market is still a pretty good place to put your money in. The problem is that people arent logical with their money. Ask people who invested in Worldcom why during the plummet did they not jsut cut their losses and jump ship, the willa nswer cause they thought they could get it all back. When people invest in bussiness that have good business fundementals and learn to get rid of emotion when they trade they can do quite well for theselves. It a litttle like gambling but most of the odds ae in your favor not the houses and thats why its a better bet then vegas.

    You've got a point there. But if a person doesn't have a business sense or could not control their emotions in stock market then it would be safer to stay with the bank.

    If I were to invest now in an industry then i would choose a defensive one (ie not moving with market prices with general index) ie. agriculture, energy. Those two. there is always demand for food and there is always demand for energy. I would short banks and of course automotive but that is already known that they are terrible performers.
