Long Term, Stocks & Gold Beat Stocks and Bonds!

David McAlvany, Chen Lin and Michael Oliver return as guests on the radio program.

You are not likely aware that by allocating 25% of your investment portfolio to gold rather than bonds is enormously more profitable. If 50 years ago, you invested 75% of $1,000 in stocks with the remainder in bonds, that $1,000 would have grown to $93,000. But had you invested 75% in stocks and 25% in gold, that $1,000 would have grown to $125,000. Even better, the portfolio with gold would have been less risky (fewer ups and downs) than the stocks and bonds portfolio because gold usually gains when stocks and bonds decline.

David shares some of his firm’s products and how they can be used to grow wealth with less volatility. Chen who has a legendary investing track record shares some of his latest biotech ideas and Michael provides his latest insights into gold and other key markets.

He studied under David Johnson, head of Hutton’s Commodity Division and Chairman of the COMEX. In the 1980’s Oliver began to develop his own momentum-based method of technical analysis. In 1987 Oliver, along with his futures client accounts (Oliver had trading POA) technically anticipated and captured the Crash. Oliver began to realize that his emergent momentum-structural-based tools should be further developed into a full analytic methodology.
