Winter Upgrade Investment: Goncalo Guedes
Winter upgrades are fast approaching, and many players (Salah, Bailey, Kane, etc.) have begun to inflate as a result. Goncalo Guedes, on the other hand, is a player that is off a lot of people’s radar. Here are 3 reasons why he is an amazing investment opportunity.
1. His 83 will be boosted to an 84, no matter how small the upgrade.
All 84 rated informs have value because of SBCs. Here are the cheapest one’s currently on the market.
Guedes currently sits around 25k, so this means that he is at his basement price in terms of 84 rated informs.
2. He is usable in game.
The graphic via FUTBIN below shows the in game stats for 2IF Guedes. Not bad for a 25k player, right? In a league with minimal inexpensive options at the LW/LM/LF position, the Portuguese international is a good bet.
3. The cheaper the player, the better the return on investment.
I’ve said this before, but inexpensive players tend to have the best ROI. For example:
Let’s say you have 500k. You can spend it on (1) 89 rated Salah, or on (20) 83 rated Guedes. If Guedes rises from 25 to 30k, that means that Salah would have to rise from 500k to 600k for the same return. The Guedes scenario is far more likely to happen.
Target Price: 25,000 coins
He is 30k on PS4, is it worth it?
He has spiked a bit in the past couple days on PS4. I still think he’s a good buy, though, even at that price. Still, try to get him for closer to 27-28k via bid or snipe.
How to snipe him…? If u use price filter, his first if (80 ovrl) will appear and mess with the sniping… any other solution for snipe?
Set a minimum BIN price a few thousand coins below the maximum BIN price i.e. 22,000 min and 25,000 max. I’d recommend using the Compare Price Sniping Trick I posted about yesterday to snipe him most efficiently.
Either Im doin sth wrong or it doesnt work..
The 80s will still be there on the page. But newly listed items will show up on the end of the page.
Should we invest even with the Lunar New Year comming?
Yes, I don’t believe any of the players who will get upgrades will lose value at all.
Hey Chief, as for the SIF of MILINKOVIĆ-SAVIĆ. Price already appears highly inflated. Wondering if it still makes sense to invest?
I think he is too inflated now. I predict his price will actually drop when the upgrade is announced as he seems a bit overinvested at this point.
Thank you! Much appreciated.
I bought 2 PTG Rashford cards for about 64k last week… you reckon they will inflate as he will get an upgrade tomorrow?
I also have 84 rated Sterling and SIF Bailey as well as the TIF David Silva. I also picked up an IF Lingard for the same reasons.
When will be the best time to offload these for the maximum profit?
I think many people have predicted the Rashford upgrade and invested accordingly, so no, I don’t think he will go up much.
We don’t know definitive times that EA will release upgrades for various leagues. Based on last year, they would be tomorrow, but they could hold off until next week because there are so many events going on tomorrow (POTM and Lunar New Year).
Best time to maximize profit? I’d say sell before the upgrade. Overinvesting has been a common theme in FIFA ’18, and many times players plummet in price when the event (TOTW, POTM, SBC, upgrade, etc.) actually drops. This is why we always “sell in the hype”.
And the hype will be in the hours leading up to the upgrade itself right?
Not really since we don’t know exactly when upgrades will be announced. If they don’t come out today, I expect them to start next week Friday.
Do the announcements come in advance like with TOTW?
Yes, but SBCs will be announced much more quickly after. Maybe 5 minutes or less.
Still worth to invest? ( bought some, 23k each) Is the best time to sell on this thursday? Did I understand you properly?
As the entire market has taken a big hit with Lunar New Year, so has Guedes. I think he will bounce back. I’m hoping EA announces more information this week about when upgrades will be released, so I’ll have a better idea of a sell time when we hear.
Will tell us in this post when to sell exactly? =))
Yes, I’ll make a post and tweet about it.
Whats your nick pn Twitter? Same as here?
