These celebrities have over 50% return on their investments

While the trades, investments, and other money-making strategies of well-known investors like Michael Burry and Warren Buffett are often topics of discussion in many households, the stock market activities of other celebrities who have also proven to be successful investors are not as well known.

Perhaps surprisingly, YouTubers have proven to be the most successful investors in terms of return rates, while comedians’ trades are the least lucrative, according to a study shared with Finbold that analyzed 233 top celebrities.

In terms of net worth, athletes take the top spot, averaging $905 million while having a 9.84% return rate. Across the board, the most successful of the analyzed celebrities, luxury vehicles and real estate represent their most common investments though many also trade stocks, luxury yachts, and even cryptocurrencies.

Looking at individual celebrities, Kenneth Brian Edmonds, a 90s superstar better known under his stage name – Babyface – could easily go down in history as one of the greats as his overall return on investments came up to 134% of his net worth. Per the data compiled by the study, Babyface’s primary investments are real estate and luxury vehicles  – including a $7 million New York property and a $3 million Bugatti Chiron.

Chase Hudson, a TikTok star, is also a highly successful investor and has managed a return rate of 68.70% on his relatively modest net worth of $11 million despite being rather young at only 21. Similar to Babyface, Hudson also mostly invests in luxury vehicles and real estate.

Billy Joel, worth $230 million, comes in third with a return rate of 52.20%, proving once and for all that Huey Campbell has a point in more than one way.
