With the global economy finally showing signs of a rebound, many people on the sidelines who pulled their money from the market are considering getting back in.

Below are just 3 of the many ways you can invest your money and likely profit as the economy eventually turns around:

#1 Stocks (Capital Gains)

The stock market has been the most volatile of late, but as the economy recovers, they will bounce back. For Long term capital gains choose mid cap and large cap growth companies with products and services that look to be on the verge of rapid growth once economic activity picks back up. Internet technology, stem cell research, and biopharm industries have quite a bit of potential. Diversify for best results.
#2 Stocks (Dividends)

Investing in dividend stocks have never been as rewarding as they are right now. Many big name large cap stocks are paying dividends of over 5%. These are solid companies which will likely increase their yield as the economy picks up as well. Look at stocks like Intel, British Petroleum, The Southern Comapny, and Altria for some examples. Be careful though because inflation will rise making the yields a little less attractive.

#3 Commodities

With Inflation predicted to rise quite a bit over the next 12-36 months, it is never a bad idea to invest in commodities in moderation. Gold, Silver, Oil, and other commodities will make great hedges against the likely inflation that surely will come once the economy starts it’s recovery.
