These 3 Metals Could Continue to Be More "Precious" Than Gold! (+2K Views)

The movements and potential movements of the yellow precious metal often grab the spotlight, even if there are other assets outperforming it.

Some have called for gold to surge to new historical highs [Read: Goldrunner: Gold’s Extremely Bullish Backdrop Setting Stage for Run to $2,050, Then $2,400, Then $4,500 and Ultimately $10,000-12,000!], while others are not quite so sure [Read: My Case Against the Case Against The Case Against Gold] but one thing is certain, gold is getting handsomely outperformed by all three of its precious metal counterparts in recent weeks, as the safe haven metal has failed to keep pace as of late.

Gold

All in all, gold has had a strong 2012, up more than 11%, but its performance in recent weeks has been overshadowed by silver, palladium and platinum. In the trailing four-week period, gold has gained just 2%, as its price has kicked back and forth depending on what news of the fiscal cliff and euro debt woes came about.

The other three white metals have been able to turn in much stronger performances.

Platinum

Up by 4.3%.

Silver

Below, we outline the most popular ETF for adding exposure to the above three precious metals for anyone looking to play the hot hand for the time being.

  1. iShares Silver Trust (SLV): This physically-backed silver product has more than $10 billion in assets and sees more than 10.2 million shares trade on a daily basis. As far as silver exposure is concerned, investors will be hard pressed to find a more liquid and stable option.
  2. Physical Platinum Shares (PPLT): This platinum fund has just over $770 million in assets and has enjoyed gains of nearly 16% thus far in 2012.
  3. Physical Palladium Shares (PALL): Though it is the smallest of the three funds with just under $500 million in assets, PALL still offers a nice liquidity and physically-backed structure for investors. Note that while this fund has been surging in recent weeks, it is still only up 1.7% on the year, as it got off to a rocky start in 2012.

11. My Case Against the Case Against The Case Against Gold

saupload_thumbsdowngold

All thing considered, it seems clear that the long-term real returns of gold have been poor (compared to stocks and bonds), and I see no reason to expect long-term price appreciation for gold to be above inflation. In fact, as with any non-income producing asset, it would be unreasonable to expect gold to provide significant positive real returns over an indefinite period of time…I would argue that buying gold is a short-term gamble that is completely dependent on the unpredictable vagaries of perception, market psychology and the “greater fool” theory…While it is true that gold can be a good short-term trade and offer superior returns over shorter periods (as has been the case in recent years) I believe that stocks will continue to substantially outperform gold over time.  [Let me explain these less than popular conclusions further.] Words: 1258
