Buying stock now while the crisis/collapse is looming is almost suicide. Stocks are worth less than fiat and the entire investment system will collapse. I would focus more on real estate. Probably venture capital could help (here I don't mean buying up shares of a company, but actually investing like a producer would invest in a music band). But not stocks, shares. After the crisis kicks in, you could turn part of your PM's or other assets into stocks and hoard shares, stocks... At least this is what I think. My very humble opinion.
