While CNBC and other media outlets continue to hype stocks and talk down Gold, the precious metal is crushing virtually every US-based asset class.
Year to date, Gold is up over 20%, compared to nearly 5% for Treasuries and a mere 2.55% for stocks.
[…] This outperformance is nothing new. Since 2000, Gold has returned 340%… nearly twice Treasuries’ return of 186% and exponentially higher that the S&P 500’s 42% return.
And this is including Gold 40% correction from 2011 to today.
