So I found this really weird investment on the internet:  lean hogs. Does anyone know anything about them? I got a bit confused if I'm honest, but the return actually looks good and it's a well-established market, apparently.

Investing firms - to trust or not to trust?

My friend has just started with an investment firm.  Bascially you give them what you want, and let them invest for you, and you can add more monthly if you want.  You can get your cash out at any time and they make a plan for you based on your needs. I am not sure if this is a good idea or not, or is it just lazy investing where they take all your money.

Should I invest in high fashion?

I was thinking of investing in a high end fashion piece such as a Channel handbag, but it seems that really I can't use it, and they don't actually accumulate in value unless they are completely unmarked ergo you can't use them.  However, whilst researching I found that it's acutally a really good time to invest in high fashion companies. Is anyone an investor?
