We started our firm back in 1987 for the express purpose of attempting to insure that a client’s account’s value, would be insured against a stock market decline. The theory, and history is showing us that it’s more than just a theory, is that quality gold and silver stocks will insure your stock portfolio against a broad stock market decline.
For example, a $100,000 investment portfolio, according to generally accepted financial planning rules, should always have 20% of their holdings in gold and silver stocks. Thus, if the general stock market declines 40%, gold and silver stocks, being more volatile, may rise 80%. Thus, offsetting the loss in the overall portfolio.
