Ted Bauman, editorial director at Banyan Hill Publishing, recently posted an article on www.medium.com that may get investors anxious about their money. The article presents an investment opportunity premised on the dollar’s exchange rate against foreign currency and the prospect that it will inevitably weaken a bit. If you’re a risk-taking investor, Bauman’s article is just for you.
According to Bauman, the money is in assets that produce streams of income in future. Using shares as an example, he explains that when you buy foreign shares (shares in a foreign company) priced in local currency, they will be cheap because of the dollar’s stronger position. Now, take the decline of the dollar into account, say, 1 to 4 years from the time of purchase, it means that the shares will be worth more in dollars. This will provide you with extra income. If Bauman’s enthusiasm for the dollar’s declination concerns you, don’t be; it might not be such a bad thing after all. While the strength of the dollar is a manifestation of our economy’s strength, it also means locally manufactured products are expensive compared to those manufactured in other countries, which means fewer exports and more imports, and no one wants that.
Bauman’s exact goldmine is in land. According to the Banyan director, land is the ultimate revenue-producing asset. Land in foreign countries are relatively cheap because of the dollar’s strength. This means you can buy agricultural land easily. Furthermore, such land appreciates on an average of 2-5% every year. Add the annual return on investment and the value of appreciation for every year you hold such land and you have yourself a turbocharged investment. Bauman also asserts that such investment is very easy to make because of local industries that encourage foreign investment in the agricultural sector, so much that you might not have to physically go there. He will have a more detailed presentation on the same in The Bauman Letter, coming out early 2018.
