Invest In The Poor Man’s Gold?
However, if for some reason you haven’t taken action yet, here’s an alternative strategy that costs less and may even produce higher returns.
Simply invest in Silver.
Here’s why: As you probably know, the majority of analysts believe that gold will explode to a price somewhere over $5,000 per ounce in the next few years.
As gold rises, the price of silver will follow, because it is over 90% correlated to the price of gold.
However, silver has one EXTRA advantage that makes it an even more desirable play.
Right now, it’s greatly under-valued relative to its long-term relationship to gold.
Here’s what I mean: Over many decades, the average ratio of the price of gold to silver has been about 45:1
However, with the current price of gold at $1293 and the price of silver at 19.78, the ratio of gold to silver is 65:1
That means that silver is currently SIGNIFICANTLY undervalued.
So, what could this mean if you were to buy Silver right now?
If the price of gold remained the same and the ratio of gold to silver simply returned to its average, your investment in silver would grow from 19.78 to 28.73, a 45% increase!
What this ultimately means is that with the pending skyrocketing price of gold, you can probably grab an EXTRA 45% return by simply investing in Silver instead of Gold.
This “extra” benefit is almost like running a race with the wind at your back, pushing you forward faster and faster by up to 45%!
According to John Stephenson, author of the “The Little Book of Commodity Investing, “In a world where the amount of paper fiat currency is staggering and increasing as governments from U.S. to Europe keep printing, it may be time to start looking at the poor man’s gold.”
The bottom line is that while gold has exceeded its record price during the 1980s, silver is still way off the $68 per ounce level it reached during that time.
So, why not consider investing in Silver, while the opportunity for significant profit is so easily available?
