Gold's Investment Returns

Gold Delivers Competitive Returns

Gold has earned well-deserved acclaim as a safe haven in times of economic distress. However, it’s worth noting the metal also actually has outperformed stocks over key long-term stretches.

This reality trumps common perception. Many people assume equities always far outdistance gold in any side-by-side matchup lasting longer than a few years. But it’s not true.

As you can see in the chart below, over the last half-century (since 1968), gold has actually managed to outperform the Dow Jones Industrial Average:

The next chart (see below) represents the period from January 2000 through the end of 2018. During this period, the Dow grew roughly 115%, while gold returned well over 300%:

Gold will always be prized for its use in helping portfolios stay safe during uncertain economic environments. However, it’s also important to recognize its viability as an asset for capital appreciation.
