In the following video David Morgan (of The Morgan Report) discusses sensible gold bullion investment allocations as we hear from financial experts like David Harquail, Jeffrey Christian, and Nick Barisheff.
We also explicitly cover Jeffrey Christian’s recent 25% Gold Bullion allocation study here which backetests bullion investment allocation performances spanning from 1968 to the year 2016 vs US equities and US bonds respectively. The results would suprise most main stream financial media talking points about bullion allocations.
Why an Allocation to Bullion Currently Makes Sense?
S&P 500 price to earning valuations are currently much higher than they were before the 1987 black monday crash and even at current valuations above the 1929 black tuesday crash level. Perhaps now is the time to take some profits from equities and roll them over into precious commodities.
The following chart, provided by Incrementum’s In Gold We Trust 2018 report, illustrates that the relative valuation of commodities in comparison with equities currently seems low by historic standards.
Compared to the S&P 500, the GSCI Commodity Index is now trading at its lowest level in 50 years and significantly below its long-term median of 4.16.
If we postulate the general tendency of reversion to the mean, we can likely anticipate attractive commodities investment opportunities and better performance for bullion investment allocations to come.
