LEGO's might be the hot new investment according to a new study by Researchers at Moscow’s Higher School of Economics. The study found that retired LEGO sets appreciated in value roughly 11% annually from 1987 to 2015, that is more than gold, stocks, or bonds. LEGO sets, especially hard to find or limited edition sets tend to have a “high collectible value” according to the study. In addition, most LEGO sets are discontinued after a few years making them even more of a hot ticket item. LEGO prices are also relatively unaffected by the stock market, the study found and increased in value especially during volatile market times like the 2008 financial crisis.
