It is hard to imagine an investment that has outperformed gold over the last ten years. If, in January of 2001, you had invested $10,000 in gold bullion, your investment in the precious metal would now be worth around $60,000. Not a bad return! Can you beat it? Investing in real estate would not. Stocks? Bonds? The equity and bond markets gyrate dramatically and, for the individual investor, it can be a very frustrating experience. Sometimes leaving your investment dollars in the hands of professional fund managers is a good idea…but again, the returns on mutual funds are unpredictable, at best.
Gold offers good diversification to anyone’s portfolio because its price tends to move in the opposite direction of stock prices, and very often bond prices, as well. In addition, gold is a great hedge against any unexpected and/or catastrophic national or world-wide economic event, as well as a hedge against a falling dollar.
We, like many of gold’s most enthusiastic advocates, suggest to our customers that they dedicate a fraction of their investment portfolio in gold. Why not more than a small fraction? Because gold does not pay out a dividend yield and produces no earnings. It appreciates or depreciates based on supply and demand. Currently, demand is high due to the unpredictability of the stock market, a pallid U.S. economy and worries about the indebtedness and economic frailty of nations around the world. Some central banks that have never before participated in the gold market have begun guying gold, also boosting demand. When world economies are strong and stock and bond markets are thriving, gold prices cannot compete and its’ price tends to slump. That is not the case today! Many of the world’s leading investment experts believe that gold will continue to move upwards, until the United States and other struggling world economies begin to stabilize…and no one believe that that will take place any time soon!
So, if you are one of the many who believe that a portion (10% or so) of your investment dollars should be invested in gold, we have several options to offer you. Diamond Buyers can assist you in your gold purchase by selling you a variety of gold coins or stamped, certified gold bullion bars.
