The solution found by many investors to the low rates of savings is to invest the money in CDB, LCI, LCA and Treasury Direct bonds. Several banks offer daily liquidity in fixed-rate securities or linked to Selic and IPCA. In these cases there may be a regressive tax on income: 22.5% up to 180 days, 20% between 181 and 360 days, 17.5% from 361 to 720 days; and 15% over 720 days.
If the BRL 110 million from Mega-Sena were invested in a CDB security with a return of 15% per year, the lucky person would have a gross gain of BRL 16.5 million and would pay BRL 2.88 million in tax (17 .5%). Thus, the net remuneration would be R$ 1 million in the first month and R$ 13.62 million in 365 days, bringing the amount to R$ 123.62 million.
Another alternative is to put money in variable income, such as shares and funds on the Stock Exchange (B3). In this circumstance, the chance of obtaining high returns would increase, as well as the risk of seeing equity decrease dramatically as a result of eventual drops.
On the other hand, the shares of Espaçolaser (ESPA3), a body aesthetics company with more than 550 units in Brazil, have plummeted more than 75% since the beginning of the year, from R$ 7.52 to R$ 1.85, and almost 90 % from its debut on B3, in February 2021, when the initial public offering (IPO) was BRL 17.90.
The Ibovespa Index (IBOV), which quotes all shares traded on the B3, started 2022 with 103,921 points and closed at 110,358 this Wednesday (15/9), up 6.19%. In June 2021, the stock exchange surpassed 130 thousand points, while in March 2020, at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in Brazil, it was below 67 thousand.
