A lot of rockets, bazookas and energy bars are awarded this days. Players receive BH/CH medals more often and the logical question appears: Where to invest your gold? Therefore, I have decide to publish a few articles and maybe help you with your decision. However, I am not taking any responsibility for investments you will make after reading this article
Weapon Raw Material Investment
As you can see from most of Marketplaces, the price of weapon raw is 2-3 times higher than food raw material. Logically, with the same investment you will earn more money by investing in weapon raw material building.
It is very important to know, that with investing in this kind of business you immediately lose a half of your money. Why? The answer is very simple, if you would like to dissolve your building you will receive only the half of your invested money. There is no discount like in the food or weapon industry.
Since the most expensive building is Rubber Plantation (35 gold) the starting investment was 35 gold for all buildings. In other words, with this amount of money you can buy approximately:
- 8.16 x Iron Mine
- 4.1 x Oil Rig
- 3.5 x Aluminium Mine
- 1.44 x Saltpeter Mine
- 1 x Rubber Plantation
In the next Table you will see the input data that I have used (from Serbia) while calculating the profitability of investment for each weapon raw material building.
On the next graph the profitability of the investment for one year can be seen, presented in CC:
With current prices on the market, it can be concluded that the Aluminium Mine Building is the most profitable investment (dark green line). The return of investment is achieved in 119 days, and after that you have a pure profit. The only disadvantage is that it requires more health Saltpeter or Rubber.
Although, the Rubber Plantation +4 workers is slightly more profitable, it needs more investments (3500cc for 2000 of extra storage) and if prices goes down you would have to fire your workers and the line is the same as the "dark blue" on the picture.
What happens if your country lose 4 resources (60% production)?
Again, Aluminium is the most profitable, you will just need more days for return of your investment (343 days). For other building you would need more than one year and unfortunately you will lose a lot of your money with Rubber Plantation +4 workers.
