Legos, Paxos and the Epic Rap Battle Between Satoshi Nakamoto and Alexander Hamilton: eToro Report
Even though Toys ‘R’ Us didn’t turn out to be such a great investment idea, as it turns out, one of the products from their shelf is actually one of the best investments of all time.
In a study titled The Toy for Smart Investors, two acclaimed researchers do a deep dive into the economics of Lego sets.
During the period of the study, these unique collectors play things averaged an annual return of 11%. As well, they proved to be uncorrelated with other markets so even when times are tough they tend to continuously increase in value.
In this graph, we can see two lego indices outperforming some of your more traditional investments like stocks and bonds.
I guess it just goes to show that a good investment isn’t always an obvious one. Even a simple hobby can turn out some solid profits. In fact, most people who’ve made large returns in things like wine, art, automobiles, or even bitcoin will probably tell you the same.
