In nominal terms, maybe, but when compared to physical GOLD, the value of major stock market indexes has been declining for over a decade! Although your stock portfolios may be increasing in dollar terms, inflation has been eating away at the true value of your investments - resulting in higher prices at the grocery store, at the pump, and everywhere else.
Gold is one of the only investments that cannot be inflated away. If you haven’t adjusted your stock investment gains for inflation, chances are you think you’ve gained more than you really have.
Gold on the other hand, has delivered keen individuals like yourselves handsome returns over the past decade and has allowed many to offset the further depreciation of their US dollars.
How about you? Can you say the same?
Across the board, physical GOLD has outperformed essentially every major stock index from 1999 to 2011. As evidenced by the chart, the Standard & Poors Index shows a nominal growth of 25% over the last decade. Adjust those gains for inflation, however, and investors are left with a negative return. Meanwhile, GOLD prices are up nearly 300%!
Here at Swiss America, we think diversifying a portion of your portfolio into gold assets is not only recommended, but also essential for the long-term health of your and your family’s financial well-being.
