If You Invested $10,400 In WWE In ’99, You’d Be A Millionaire By Now

Published

on

Earlier this year, we looked at WWE’s 4x returns in the first nine months of 2018. This stock has been crushing it on the stock exchange and more than quadrupled in value.

Though the recent pullback impacted investor returns slightly, it has still gained a staggering 142% this year.

So what if you had bet on The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin way back in 1999? That was the year WWE went public. What if you put aside $200/week and invested it in the WWE stock?

Your investment would be worth $1M today

Yes, your $200/week investment for the last 19 years in WWE would have made you a millionaire. However, just like any other stock, WWE has had its share of ups and downs.

In December 1999, the stock was trading just shy of $18 a share. Over the next four years, it fell to $11. Though it rose over the next couple of years, the stock slipped again to the $10 mark around the end of 2011.

WWE shares only began its staggering bull run by the end of 2014, where the stock rose from $14 to its current price of $73.6. The stock touched an all-time high of $97.69 earlier this year.

Are these returns impressive?

What if you had invested in WWE when its IPO (initial public offering) was launched in 1999? A $200/week investment amounts to an annual investment of $10.4k. This then amounts to just over $200k over the next 19 years.

With a payback of $1M, the annual rate of return is 16%. Is this enough for the amount of risk undertaken?

Despite the $1M tag it promises, any other major index or alternative investment vehicle such as REITs would have generated similar returns with a far lower risk exposure.

Imagine an investor who had actually invested during the IPO. He would have had to wait for 16 long years just to break even.

What’s the way forward for WWE investors?

WWE’s traditionally focused on male wrestlers, skewing to their male-dominated audience. But it looks like that could change.

Led by former UFC superstar and current WWE Women’s champ Ronda Rousey, the company has staged its first-ever PPV this year in an ambitious attempt to broaden their female audience base.

This event included over 50 female wrestlers from the “Raw” and “SmackDown” franchises.

Wall Street estimates WWE’s sales to rise by 60% over the next two years to $1.27B, up from $800M in 2017. With rapidly improving profit margins, earnings are also expected to grow at a significant 71% over the next five years.

In fact, WWE’s net margin is expected to rise from a mere 4.1% in 2017 to 22% in 2020.

Though WWE’s stock lost over 25% in market value since October this year, analysts are again betting big on them.

How Big Real Estate Moguls Avoid Taxes (And How You Can, Too) 👀

Published

on

I was looking around Google for an old article on tax strategies and this five-year old video of myself happened to pop up.

I’m interviewing a tax expert about how real estate investors avoid paying taxes in perpetuity—AND how everyday citizens can do the same thing.

(Real estate—our TEMPLE I and TEMPLE II projects included—has a number of tax benefits savvy investors have capitalized on for years, including Opportunity Zone breaks and 10-year tax abatements.)

There’s the 1031 exchange, of course, which I’ve shared with you guys before. 

Just to refresh your memory, the 1031 Exchange allows you to roll over gains from your last project into a new property TAX FREE—as long as said property is worth the same or more.

But there’s ANOTHER TAX LOOPHOLE that can take your portfolio to an entirely new level by splitting your capital gains into MULTIPLE properties.

So I thought I’d share it with you guys. 💎

You can check it out here.

Let me know what you think. 😎

PS: In our next update, I’m going to break down how real estate moguls get paid from their properties…tax free. 👀

How I run a $300M+ business from the beach…(and how you can TOO!)

Published

on

Yes, you read that right.

If there’s anything the pandemic taught us, it’s that the paradigm of “office” and “workspace” has been shaken to its CORE.

Universities are teaching via Zoom, court dates are done virtually, FULLY REMOTE businesses are valued at $1B+, and legitimate Inc. 5000 startups are run from…wherever. 📲

This is my office for the day…

I am actually running our business from the beach, typing this from here.

It’s 4:28 pm CET, which means it’s 10:28 am EST and I am CRUSHING my to-do list.

(And the team will continue to crush it while I’m asleep. That’s the 🗝)

So how did we get here? 

We launched NYCE and our mission to create 100,000 millionaires in March, 2020…just as the global COVID-19 lockdown happened. 😳

As a result, we shut down our main office and set EVERYTHING up to run remotely…

SMOOTHLY! And a system that allows us to outperform competition by 200%. (You can build this system, too. More on this in a second.)

Here’s what we were able to do since then:

  • Gained 6M+ followers across all platforms 📈
  • Add 1500+ new apartments to the portfolio 🤑
  • Grow to $300M in real estate 🚀
  • 105% investor returns 🎉
  • 700K+ community members 🤝

And here’s the best part…

Having team members in all the main time zones gives us a 24-hour work cycle vs. 9-5/eight-hour on-the-clock performance.

This means we get 3x the productivity of a similar company. 🔥

Let me repeat that…3x PRODUCTIVITY vs. our competitors.

Meanwhile our project management software grants us 24-hour TEAM-WIDE connectivity that tracks all tasks and lets us know if productivity dips even a little bit.

There is ALWAYS someone senior awake. It could be Martin in Barcelona…Nat in New York…Vineet & Arif in New Delhi.

All the while giving YOU GUYS wealth hacks and daily content. 🔥

OK, so how can you do it?!

Well, the first step is to have an actual side hustle you’re launching. Not just an idea, a validated business.

MAJOR KEY: Do NOT spend money until you’ve made your FIRST DOLLAR! 🗝🗝🗝🗝

(You can catch a replay Business Launch masterclass here and see TRIBE member Nessa launched her business on the spot and got her first $45K client shortly after.)

One of the easiest ways to start is with Airbnb—you can start that in 10 minutes. Literally. (Here’s a guide if you need it.)

Once you have your business, you build a virtual infrastructure (you really just need two softwares, which are FREE), manage the team accordingly and run the business from there.

I’m gonna put together a step-by-step video breakdown this weekend inside the new TRIBE U on the FIVE key things you need to do this for YOURSELF. 💵 💎

From what software to use, how to build a team, how to keep.

In the meantime, drop a comment if you’re ready to build some wealth and any questions if you want more…

Let’s get to work. 🙌

PS: If you can’t be bothered with video and just wanna get to work, we’re hosting a TRIBE U workshop that will help you get this process started on the spot. It’s $479 $49. 🔥
