100K doesnt get you s**t for real estate...maybe one 2 bedroom house that wont appreciate much. Best bet would be to put it down to take out a loan and open a franchise. Subway, jimmy johns etc. These are things that almost always hold their own. How many mcdonalds have you seen shut down? I have not seen one in all honesty

stock market
you would loose all of your money. The stock market is s**t. I say this because, due to our recent depression, trillions of dollars were lost in the stock market. almost 10 years of economical gain disapearred. I wouldnt leave my money in the hands of greedy corperate f*gs.

better yet

BALANCED PORTFOLIO

40% stocks
40% percent bonds
18% interest savings acct
2% checking acct

assuming that all debt is payed off
nice thought. but too much weight on the stock market. id say more like 15% to 20% on stocks. and the difference would be put into bonds since they are much SAFER these days.

Real estate is good, but you won't get s**t for 100k

I'd say a business. If you can maintain it and know how to run one...the outcome of it will come out great.

that's because you don't know how to trade.

if there's any more bad news that would cause a crash, anybody can get rich in the stock market. the idiots who lost trillions of dollars are people who buy buy buy thinking the world is made out of fluffy bunnies and marsh mallows.

the beauty of the stock market is that you can make money in a good economy and a bad economy. if the market is s**t, you can get rich and it's very easy. all you do is buy put options on market leaders or short them. if you're in a bull rally, you go long.

Real estate hands down. In addition to a lot of great comments, the one I haven't seen is in regards to taxes...
Buy a franchise or start a business- Work yourself as a manager and get taxed at your income rate.
Stocks - IF you make money and you want to take it out, pay fees on it. The dividend tax is going up to 40%. Capital gains is going up to 20%. If it is your day job, then it is your profession and you get taxed at your income rate.
Real Estate - Depreciation alone will significantly decrease your taxable income. Passive income is the least taxed income of the 3 types (Earned/Portfolio/Passive).

So if your looking to keep the money you spend and use it as an accelerate to create more wealth while having your money work for you, then buy real estate.

Perhaps a cheap helicopter. Give ppl rides for a payment. Even do some training for money. Of course you'd have to take training courses in how to fly and land a chopper yourself, and get your pilot license.

cramer on mad money has actually made me some money, plus my boss put me on to some good dividend stocks, im at the point where I dont have to add really anymoney s**t is re-investing itself every quarter, phk and rqi have made me a few thousand since last october.
Stock is beautiful in the long run, but if your just trying to make quick cash You need to be real careful, even the best take huge hits in GOOD markets

But to Real estate the 100k can get u 5 properties you can flip. I haven't done myself but My real estate instructor basically explained to us the basics of how he flips houses and then went on to apartment buildings, and he started with 25k
