It means putting your money into businesses and watch your capital grown into profit without really having to move a muscle. For instance, you could decide to invest in the palm oil sector given the lucrativeness of the sector.

You could buy a drum of palm oil at N80,000 and hoard it. During the yuletide seasons, the price would have almost tripled and you could sell the same drum of oil you had bought for N80,000 for more than N180,000.
