This article introduces five growth models as an investment
method. These are conventional logistic growth, Gompertz growth, generalized
charged capacitor growth, combined logistic and charged capacitor growth, and
combined Gompertz and charged capacitor growth. This article demonstrates how
to apply the growth models in investing while taking oscillation and
lengthening cycles into consideration. The growth models applied as an
investment method are compared with 15 other common investment methods. The growth
models can be used to predict the prices of various types of assets, including
derivatives, stocks, bonds, real estate, and cryptocurrencies. Other phenomena
involving growth and fluctuations can also be analyzed. This article provides
insights for researchers and investors for how to predict when investing.
