Now for the superpower, imagine that you have x-ray vision. You can see all the components of all the objects around you, the springs and stuffing in your bed, the wires and plumbing, the bricks, plaster, cement, the metal window locks, the PVC, glass, the screws, nuts and bolts. How about all those automatic things that are also supporting this modest existence of yours? The utility company, your broadband provider, your insurance policies, water supplier, your bank accounts and so on. A vast number right? So many you probably gave up or did not attempt to count.
Most of those products and services are provided by companies found listed on the world stock markets. They are also in your portfolio, no matter how big or small it may be. They are there. This is investing. Deploying your money to back businesses that we all use, many of which we do not even realise. Even with the huge rise in technology where you will be using software on hardware that perhaps you are so familiar with it does not even register until its replaced, upgraded or fails…much like (exactly like) all the things you have just observed.
You own a part of all of this. A small part, but your money is backing those companies to improve what they do. We all know that the future will be different, and some businesses will need to adapt to the changes or fail, but new ones will emerge for things that none of us can imagine clearly (if you can, please get backing (money) to make it).
This is what your investments do.
Should you wish to see the mini-series WandaVision about Wanda and Vision, it can be found on the Disney channel, another holding in your portfolio.
