Marc Faber: Gold Is One Of The Few Cheap Assets

So if you compare the performance of gold shares to the S&P, I think it’s been a disaster for gold shares. When I look around, I think the price of gold is one of the few assets that are relatively inexpensive.

Don Coxe: Gold Will Be Worth Much More Than $1,300 per Oz

The Gold Price Is Rising. What’s Gold’s Message?

The recent rise in the gold price may well be an early warning sign that the currently extant asset price bubbles as well as the economy are set to suffer a sizable setback in the not-too-distant future. Admittedly, the recent rally in gold may yet be reversed, in which case these musings would no longer apply.
