Stick with Gold Right Now, Volatility Back Into Play in H2 – Stifel Nicolaus Portfolio Manager Chad Morganlander

from Kitco NEWS

Gold will likely continue to shine, especially in the second half of the year as volatility comes back into play, this according to Stifel Nicolaus portfolio manager Chad Morganlander. Speaking with Kitco News on Wednesday, he said he expects the metal’s longer-term annual returns to be between 4-6% over the next 5 years. ‘We are recommending a overweight in gold,’ he said. The yellow metal has been under pressure on heightened rate hike expectations, trading at two-month lows. December Comex gold last traded down $5 at $1,311.50 an ounce. ‘Investors should buy a pure play on the commodity (ETF) rather than individual miners,’ Morganlander added. He noted that gold miners are subject to equity risk and he prefers investing in the underlying metal instead.
