The Truth About
Gold As an Investment (What Bubblevision "Experts"
Conveniently Overlook) by Tyler Durden |
February 10, 2016
Almost every other day I
read an article telling me that owning Gold is dumb or that
Gold is doomed as an investment.
These articles would be useful or insightful
if they weren’t based on “analysis” that is either misleading
or downright wrong.
Gold has absolutely CRUSHED stocks since
2000. During this period, we’ve had two of the biggest stock
market bubbles in history. Yet Gold’s performance has made
stocks’ performance look like a flat-line.
Put another way, Gold has demolished stocks
during a period in which the Fed was printing money by the
trillions of Dollars. The Fed and other Central Banks may
want to boost stocks, but Gold is the biggest beneficiary
from their insanity.
However, Gold’s long-term outperformance
of stocks is even more incredible.
Most “analysis” of Gold as an investment
runs back for 100 years or so. However, this analysis is
deceptive as Gold was pegged to major currencies up until
Of course, the geniuses in the media overlook
this little tidbit because once major countries began to
de-peg their currencies from Gold in 1967, the precious
metal has absolutely DEMOLISHED stocks in terms of performance.
Since 1967, Gold has risen 33 fold. The
S&P 500 is up just 21 Fold. Had you ignored stocks completely
and simply bought Gold you would be significantly RICHER.
Owning Gold is just one of the methods investors
can use to generate real wealth in today’s market of financial
bubbles. We outline two others in our 21-page investment
report titled Stock Market Crash Survival Guide.
