Weekly Touchpoint: Billionaire Sawiris Preparing for Market Crash with Physical Gold
Posted By | May 8, 2018
More people are fretting over a dangerously overvalued stock market and wondering, “Where do I turn next?” Some investors seek answers exclusively within the realm of equities and bonds, but others recognize the potential advantages of moving directly to gold.
• In fact, Egypt’s second-richest man is apparently so enamored of gold’s value as a safe haven that he’s decided to convert half of his entire $5.7 billion net worth to gold. According to MarketWatch, Naguib Sawiris, chairman of Orascom Telecom Media & Technology Holding SAE, is making this strong commitment to gold because, as he puts it, the world is “full of crises right now.”
• Former Kentucky congressman and presidential candidate Dr. Ron Paul says gold should be everyone’s next stop when a massive downturn in the stock market is lurking. He told CNBC a history of quantitative easing has made “everything artificial” for years. Paul is looking for the stock market to give up as much as 50 percent of its current value. Already a healthy investor in gold, the congressman says he plans to buy even more of it.
• The Street notes popular Shark Tank investor Kevin O’Leary is another big fan of gold, however he will own it not through mining stocks but as bullion. In remarks at a recent symposium, O’Leary complained that “the history of mining has been abysmal” and said buying the commodity once it’s out of the ground has “served me very, very well.”
• Regular securities brokerages are not set up to maintain custody of alternative assets. The self-directed IRA is the only way to own physical gold and silver as a part of a tax-deferred portfolio. Also, because self-directed IRAs allow many non-traditional assets besides gold and silver, they just might be the single-best tool for achieving effective diversification of your IRA or 401(k). Learn more about the extraordinary potential offered by the self-directed gold IRA: read the latest blog article from Augusta Precious Metals.
You may not be a billionaire. You may not want to put half your net worth in gold. But if you are hoping to enjoy a secure retirement, it’s a good idea to consider the strategic acquisition of physical gold and silver for your IRA or 401(k).
