Gold vs. Stocks and Bondsno you have it backwards ..it is you trying to disprove what I post with either no facts , wrong facts, or you try to post things like a 100 year chart that have zero To do with anything I said.
believe me I do my homework ..I talk facts and figures and if the numbers show what I say there is nothing to argue but yet you do it anyway
When evaluating the performance of gold as an investment over the long term, it really depends on the time period being analyzed. For example, over a 30-year period, stocks and bonds have outperformed gold, and over a 15-year period, gold has outperformed stocks and bonds.1 2
Over the past 30 years, the price of gold has increased by around 280%.2 Over the same period, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) has gained 839%.1
If we look instead over the past 15 years, the price of gold has increased by 278%, roughly the same as the 30 year.2 Over the same period, the DJIA increased by only 173%.1
So, over the longer term, stocks seem to outperform gold by about 3-to-1, but over shorter time horizons, gold may win out. Indeed, if we go way back to the 1920s through today, stocks blow gold away.
Turning to bonds, the average annual rate of return on investment-grade corporate bonds going back to the 1920s is around 5.25%. That indicates that over the past 30 years, corporate bonds have returned around 450% - nearly double that of gold. Over a 15-year period the return on bonds and gold has been fairly comparable.
These are facts..look at the 30 year. I like facts.
I think this board is about people expressing what they think ...opinion..and facts. I do both. If you do not like what I post like I said ..so be it.
