Centuple (in English) means ‘a hundredfold.’ “Centupler” (in French, although not sure about the pronunciation) means ‘to increase a hundredfold.’

As the name “Centupler” suggests, the goal for those gathered here is a hundredfold return. No, even more than a hundredfold! This is a place for audacious individuals who scoff at anything less.

A hundredfold return… Hahaha.

Can you imagine it? Investing $1,000 and turning it into $100,000 is a hundredfold return. Just the thought of it is exciting and delightful, but at this moment, are you logically considering if this is even possible? Is it a scam? Does it seem too good to be true?

If you think that way, you’re absolutely normal.

Nowadays, I’m not sure, but back in the day, if you went to a bookstore or looked for investment information on YouTube or blogs, you would often see titles like ‘Make $xxx a Day with $x,xxx,’ or ‘How to make 1% Daily’. These titles grab your attention with specific numbers, and you might think, ‘Making 1% a day doesn’t seem that hard, so maybe I can do it too.’ (I was also tempted at first. Everyone has a first time.)

Making 1% a day. Does that seem like a realistic goal?
Let’s calculate if it’s really feasible.

There are about 250 trading days in a year (a year has 52 weeks, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays). If you make 1% a day, the annual return would be about 1,200%, or roughly 12 times. (If you invest $1,000, a 1% daily return means earning $10 a day, so how does that become $12,000 after a year? This is compound interest, where interest is added to the principal, and over time, it grows exponentially.)

If this continues for 2 years, the return is 144 times, and after 3 years, the return is about 1,742 times.

What do you think? If you consider a 1% daily return realistic, achieving a hundredfold return in 1 year and 10 months is very achievable, so why does it seem more unrealistic than a 1% daily return? (Simply because people believe it without calculating or questioning it.)

Investment requires you to question and calculate every scenario. There are many who will try to deceive you for money, and a lot of misinformation out there. Since all investment decisions are your responsibility, you should develop the habit of calculating everything in advance to avoid losses.

Going back to the starting point, “Centupler” aims for a hundredfold return. However, the investment period and target timeline for achieving this return differ significantly from other investors. We plan to achieve it in at least 10 years, up to around 30 years. A hundredfold return in 10 years means an annual return of about 59%, in 20 years about 26%, and in 30 years about 17%.

<Apple’s adjusted stock price chart since January 2000>

For example, in January 2000, Apple’s stock price was about $0.9. Now, 24 years later, it’s around $190, which means it has increased roughly 200 times (with an average annual return of 25%, it takes about 21 years to achieve a 100-fold increase). That’s right. Centupler aims to buy stocks like Apple in 2000 and hold onto them for over 20 years through rain or shine, dot-com bubbles, bust, and financial crises, to achieve returns exceeding 100 times! Ta-da!

World Billionaires (https://www.bloomberg.com/billionaires/)
According to Bloomberg’s list of world billionaires, most of them became rich by investing in stocks for the long term. They started companies or received shares early on and held onto their stocks for decades until the companies grew significantly and the stock prices soared.

Does it seem more feasible now?
No? Well, maybe this isn’t the place for you. Please gently click the X button in the top right corner.

Centupler” is not an impossible return. It just requires thinking and acting differently from others. We’re not claiming this is the best investment method in the world, nor do we believe it to be. Each person has different investment goals, timelines, and target returns. They might even have different concepts of ‘investment.’

We’re simply following the investment method that seems the most realistic and suitable for us after long and arduous consideration. (We’re not born into wealth, and we don’t have the Midas touch. All we have is plenty of time.)

This space was created to record our thoughts and experiences along this journey. The primary purpose is to reflect on our past in the future, wondering whether we’ll regret it or proudly say, ‘I told you so.’ We also hope it might help those who are considering a similar path, though whether it will be helpful. who knows.

If not, oh well…
Just thought you should know.

Enough with the rambling. Let’s get started!
