  • You'd Better Buy Silver Than Gold 0 comments
    Jan 9, 2013 3:10 PM | about stocks: SLV, GLD

    Since president Obama took the office in 2008 through Election Day 2012, SPY, an exchange-traded fund (NYSEMKT:ETF) that tracks the S&P 500, gained 41%. Meanwhile, EEB, an ETF that tracks stocks in the BRIC countries, gained 30%. EEM, an emerging-markets equities ETF, gained 52%, in the same period too.

    But these gains pale in comparison to those made by gold-tracking ETF GLD, which rose 116% over the same time.

    I am definitely bullish on gold-partly due to rising demand from emerging market consumers and partly due to the incredible levels of money-printing in the developed world.

    But the best performer of the last four years was silver. SLV, an ETF designed to track the spot price of silver bullion, rose 198%.

    Silver tends to be more volatile than gold. But if history is a guide,

    it may be a great asset to own over the next four years, too.
