  • Abstract


    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.
