The best time to start investing is when you are young. The best time for learning how to invest is as early as possible. Here are a few thoughts about investment opportunities for young people, and as an example, how to invest $10,000.

Not What but How

Before thinking of a list of investment opportunities for young people let us think about how to start investing. Good first rules for investing are as follows:

Be careful with credit cards
Always pay off credit card debts
It is hard to find investments that gain you more each year than the interest you pay on credit card debt
Get an education
because more education means a higher income
Own you own home
One of the best deals around is the fact that interest on your mortgage is tax deductible
Start planning for retirement on your first job
If your company offers a 401K plan, take advantage of it as soon as you can
Start putting money into an IRA
Learn about a Roth IRA versus a Traditional IRA and start putting money away each year
Learn the basics of stock investing, investing in real estate, investing in gold and other commodities, and learn why one might want to buy insured municipal bonds instead of ordinary ones. You do not need to know all of this on the first day but educate yourself as you go and invest wisely.
Diversify your investments.
Some investments do well in some markets and others do well in others. Learn which is which and diversify your portfolio as you go.

Investment Opportunities for Young People

Because the first investments you make should be secure ones, buy bank CDs or invest in US Savings Bonds with each pay check. And remember the power of compounded earnings. If you invest $100 a month starting at age 25 in something that earns 7% a year it will be worth over a quarter of a million dollars when you turn 65! So, you have lots of years ahead of you and have purchased your own home, are not running up credit card debt and are feeding your IRA or 401K or both every year. What are some investment opportunities for young people that you can take advantage of? As the US economy expanded and new technologies came on line in the 20th century, people who invested in Ford, General Motors, American Telephone and Telegraph, Coca Cola, General Electric and others and did very well. Think about the 21st century and about technology innovators like Apple and Google, biotech companies, and offshore investment opportunities as nations like Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa repeat the American economic experience. Penny stocks may be appealing because you can, in fact, buy stocks for pennies.
