Would you really consider purchasing 1 BTC a valid investment? That's like purchasing 1 share of everything on the NYSE. In the end you won't earn as much as you would want to. Furthermore, you have to be a bit more interested in the success of the BTC to justify investment.
To answer the question, BTC investment is as easy as leaving 1 BTC in a wallet. The BTC will probably reach a higher value but that speculative because the entire economy is an experiment that has never been carried out in practice. This is why it is a volatile currency.
Mining is not a viable way to invest since the difficulty of successfully mining BTC has gone way up due to tech advances in hashing and BTCs increased popularity.
