Top 10 Recession Proof Business Investments For the Future

Top 10 Recession Proof Business Investments For the Future

 

Recession Proof Business investments are the best and only option right now because ever since the pandemic and the war between Russia and Ukraine, petroleum or gas prices have risen and also the US dollar getting inflated, the only way to adapt to a possible recession is with top recession-proof investments.

 

 

In Nigeria, we all remembered what happened in 2015, which is the emergence of the All Progressive Congress (APC) and we also remembered when surprisingly the largest economy in Africa, Nigeria was destabilized in the Q2 of 2016 by recession and this weakened the Nigerian economy especially cause of the increase in pipeline vandalism.

 

It’s very important to know or understand that crude oil makes up two-thirds of the Nigerian government’s revenue. This should be observed seriously or taken note of because the recession happening in Nigeria shouldn’t be a surprise, because a country that depends majorly or solely on a particular sector or particular resource is prone to recession.

 

And with the rise of gas prices or petroleum as well as the Nigerian general elections happening in February next year and the US general elections happening in November next year, the possibility of a recession is not far-fetched.

 

It is also important to note if there is one thing that is constant in all recessions in history, then it’s the fact “groceries or foodstuff prices always almost gets doubled but salaries or wages barely increases by 5%”

 

Right now, we have made exclusive or rare research on the top research-proof investments that would safeguard or be a safe haven for you during a possible recession next year or in the future.

  1. Mastery or Self Education  Is A Very Good Recession Proof Inestment For The Future

One of the most famous if not the greatest motivational speakers of all time, is Jim Rohn.

Jim Rohn who is arguably the greatest motivational speaker once said “Reading is essential to those who seek to rise above the ordinary”.

But here at Webbikon Blog, we would say reading or Self-Education is essential to those who seek to harness themselves.

 

When we talk about reading, it doesn’t just mean reading a book, it could be buying a video course and watching the video in that course to learn new skills or improve your skills to be more in demand than ever.

You need to understand investing in yourself is recession-proof because” Nobody can take away anything you’ve learned” and the more financially educated you are, the less of an impact any kind of recession would have on both your mental health and finance.

2. Consumer Groceries or Staples Is A Very Good Recession Proof Inestment For The Future

 

This shouldn’t be a surprise to many because if there is one thing that is constant, then it’s the fact no matter how a recession hits a country, there are some things people will continue to buy.

 

So it would be best if you invest in consumer staples like Nestle, Unilever (link), UAC Food, Pepsico, P&G, etc.

 

NOTE: invest in what you purchase in necessity not because you want to but because you have to. For example, no matter how bad the economy of a country would be, you would still buy soaps and toilet paper.

 

In essence, you find the companies that make this product and invest in these companies.

NOTE: Statistics show Consumer Staples has increased 227.8% after the 2008 stock crash whereas the top 500 biggest public companies in America (S&P 500) have increased by 169.7%.

 

 

NOTE: most of the consumer staples in the S&P 500 are at the top 10 of average gains in each of the past five recessions like Walmart and Kroger. you can actually click here to learn more.

3. Evergreen Businesses  A Recession Proof  Business Investment For The Future

 

 

As we know, evergreen businesses are businesses that have great products and a recurring audience. These are businesses that have been around for a very long time and will still be around for a longer time or forever. These are schools, funeral homes, daycares, etc.

 

It’s very important to understand that the demand for these businesses is continuous, You can check them out by clicking

4. Technology  A Recession Proof  Business Investment For The Future

 

 

If there is one thing that has been noticed since the computer boom in the early 70s in the US stock market, then we are talking about the recession being a catalyst for new tech companies.

We saw the rise of Amazon after the Dot-Com Bubblebetween (1997-2002).

 

We also saw the rise of Airbnb, Uber, Venmo, and WhatsApp after the 2008 stock crises In essence technology stocks cannot be ignored after a recession due to new stocks coming in.

5. Gold And Precious Metals  Is A Very Good Recession Proof Investment For The Future

 

Gold has always been seen as a safe haven before the introduction of Gold 2.0 or Bitcoin.

 

Ever since 1970, the price of gold increased from $35 to $48 in 1972 i.e a rise of only 35%. This is because gold is subject to inflation despite it being seen by Wall Street and the popular press as the hedge against inflation. This is also the same with silver.

 

But when it comes to a recession, gold is a good option because governments need to stimulate the economy, and the only way they do that is by investing heavily in gold.

 

This is because gold increases the financial supply and gold is a rare asset if you’ve read earlier you would understand the price of gold increases.

 

 

The government also invests heavily in gold because the more they print more money, the more the economy gets inflated.

6. Pharmaceutical Stocks  A Recession Proof  Business Investment For The Future

The recession has always been seen as thriving ground for pharma companies.

 

Especially when you realize the demand for medical care during the pandemic. You can actually invest in the likes of Walgreens, CVS, or a big company like Pfizer.

 

One reason why we believe the pharmaceutical stocks would boom during a possible recession is because of Mark Cuban’s Cost plus.. This is because Mark Cuban’s pharmacy is an online pharmacy that sells generic versions of popular drugs at a fraction of the original price.

 

And history always repeats itself as an opportunity that always creates room for competition.

Mark Cuban's Cost Plus is a good recession proof business

7. Blue Chip Art A Recession Proof  Business Investment For The Future

Most people would scroll down because this doesn’t seem realistic, but art especially good art is one of the best ways to protect yourself during the recession.

 

Although blue chip arts are very scarce there is a demand for them by the rich or wealthy, because blue chip arts make them more wealthy during recessions.

 

NOTE: It’s important to note that the art market has consistently performed better than the S&P 500, real estate, and gold for the past 25 years. Art is not just a good investment during a recession but a good performer during an inflationary period.

 

 

The good news is anyone can invest in art now thanks to Masterworks, as it is a platform that allows everyone to invest in art.

Masterworks is a good recession proof investment
Instead of buying the painting on your own. Masterworks actually break the ownership of art into shares, the same way a company does with stocks. You can also sell and buy these shares anytime.

 

We got to understand what makes Masterwork stand out from most investments is the fact there is no minimum investment amount.

8. Telecommunications or Telecom A Recession Proof  Business Investment For The Future

 

With the continuous rise of the internet in Africa over the years as well as the increase of smartphones and also the redevelopment of smartphones using electronic-sim like iPhone 14.

 

 

We can actually say the telecommunications sector keeps growing from strength to strength but there is an increase of almost 10% yearly and unsurprisingly we are actually more dependent on it than ever.

 

 

This is because when a recession hits a lot of people would be left unemployed or out of jobs. So the only solution or option would be freelancing or e-commerce.

This is because companies will be cutting down their expenses, so even more people will work from home and as a result, this will make the Telecom sector continue to grow.

9. Life insurance A Recession Proof  Business Investment For The Future

Rich people use life insurance very differently than we expect. Rich people see life insurance as a vehicle to build wealth. This is because instead of putting money in the bank they put it in life insurance policies and borrow against it tax-free.

 

When it comes to a possible recession, stress and financial hardships are common and insurance does well to tackle their situation.

10. Automation Is A Recession Proof  Business Investment For The Future

 

A lot of financial analysts have seen automation as the future of many big companies and this will result in a global unemployment rate.

It is important to note that the recession period only accelerates the adoption of Automation. This is because local businesses and companies are doing everything possible to be cost-efficient, so they can stay in business, and with the introduction of new automation companies, it’s only a matter of time for more freelancers to work from home and for robots to work for business owners or companies.

 

This is because prices have gone up but wages haven’t. So automation is the future.
