This Is Great News For Gold

The 2010s were not kind to precious metals, in either nominal or relative terms. Gold and silver are down from their 2011 highs and waaayyy down versus equities and other favorite assets of the 1% like fine art and trophy real estate.

But this imbalance has begun to reverse, in two ways.

First, stocks have soared to nosebleed valuation levels — see Nasdaq caps $7 trillion decade with its best rally in 10 years. Apple, Gooogle and Netflix might continue to rise from here, but they’re no longer anyone’s idea of a safe haven.

Second and a lot more interesting, “collectible” assets, those “God isn’t making any more of” things like Van Goghs, vintage Jaguars and dusty thousand-dollar bottles of vinegar, er, wine, having soared for a decade, are finally starting to roll over. From Monday’s Wall Street Journal:

The Finer Things in Life Weren’t Good Investments in 2019

When stocks and bonds do well, the rich usually feel richer, driving sales of luxury assets like wine, diamonds and fancy cars. That wasn’t the case in 2019.

The market for luxury assets has been subdued this year, despite a record year in financial markets. Driving the decline were geopolitical tensions, including uncertainty around Brexit and the U.S.-China trade conflict.

“The froth has gone out of the market. People have realized you can’t just buy stuff and expect the value to go up,” said Andrew Shirley, a partner at global real estate consulting firm Knight Frank and editor of the group’s Wealth Report.

Just about every financial asset did well this year. Major stock market benchmarks in the U.S. and Europe hit record highs. Bond prices surged as yields tumbled, thanks to looser monetary policy from major central banks, including the U.S. Luxury assets, however, were weighed down, partly by lack of Asian demand. Chinese buyers account for around one-third of world-wide sales for big luxury companies.

“There is a lot of uncertainty in Chinese markets and the riots in Hong Kong didn’t make it easy for people to come spend money in Hong Kong,” said Eden Rachminov, chairman of the board at the Fancy Color Research Foundation, a Tel Aviv trade group that tracks diamond prices.

Colored diamonds—the rarest kind—lost 0.8% in value in the first three quarters of 2019, a figure which researchers say is expected to roughly stand for the full year.

Global trade tensions had a direct impact on the wine industry in October, when Washington imposed a 25% import tax on most wines from the European Union as well as whiskey and liquor.

Investors who put money into fine wine at the beginning of the year saw an average loss of around 3.6% by the end of November, according to the Liv-ex 1000 index, a broad measure that covers wine prices across regions.

Meanwhile, those investing in classic cars have seen a loss of 5.6%, according to Historic Automobile Group International’s Top Index, which covers rare and collectors’ cars.

The art market has also shown a broad slowdown and signs of caution among art investors. Art Market Research’s All Art Index, the closest thing the industry has to a benchmark, was up just 5% this year to November, compared with a 12% rise in 2018.

The number of blockbuster sales dipped markedly. Out of the 40 most expensive paintings ever bought at auction, 18 were sold in 2018 compared with just three in 2019, by Art Market Research estimates.

Now pretend you’re someone with a lot of wealth to protect. The trophy assets you’ve been buying are not only losing value, they’re costing you time, money and stress to insure, store and guard. What’s the point if, after all this loving care, they don’t actually preserve your capital?

Still, your money has to go somewhere. So you look around and see that gold and silver are not only cheap in terms of their recent past, they’re easy to understand and buy compared to Maseratis and Monets, inexpensive to store, and have held their value for 3,000 years, something no bottle of wine can claim.

And lately, they’ve been going up.

Precious metals, in short, are now just about the only trend that looks friendly. So expect a rising proportion of wealthy investors’ spare cash to flow their way in coming years.

  1. Gold is insurance against the coming disaster. Everyone knows it’s coming – just not ‘when’. If I grow old and ‘miss’ the collapse, I’ll be quite grateful. My children & grandchildren will thank their late ‘grandad’ for having the foresight to gift them some untraceable, immutable protection.
    Pay your monthly “premium”, hide it away, and don’t fret. The death of fiat currencies is within sight. The E.U. is positioned for failure. The U.S. has exponential, unsustainable debt. China is even worse. This silliness can go on for a long time, but it can’t go on forever.

    1. Tim, jokes aside, I agree with you entirely and continue to buy more AuAg. I fear that the longer the silliness goes on, the more terrible the ending will be. I also suspect that the perps see it coming and will give us WWIII to distract us from their bankster machinations. Actually wars ARE bankster machinations.

      Meanwhile the chatter about a “cashless” society gets louder and that means they are planning to take all our wealth as well as all our guns.

      I believe paranoia is now a noble virtue rather than a mental deficiency.

      1. The ‘death of cash’ is also the ‘death of anonymity’. I think we vastly underestimate the value of actual privacy in how we live our lives. How will we like our government healthcare administrators knowing exactly how much wine out households consume? Or that you enjoy an occasional cigar? Everything we do will be ‘known’.

        1. “Everything we do will be ‘known’.” Yes, unless we work in the upper levels of government, in which case we will be able to keep lots of secrets; national security, don’t you know.

          I continue waiting for the day when a majority will conclude that government is not a good idea being performed poorly, but rather an evil idea being performed very effectively.

          1. “Hellooo” means I better wake up and start agreeing with you, yes? A heat wave in Australia is not global. The polar bears are doing fine. I live in Florida and all is well. Global warming is a prediction, not a fact, and it continues to fail because it is computer, not evidence based.

          2. I genuinely profit around $6,000 to $8,000 each and every month utilising the internet. I was jobless inspite of giving a great no. of hours and diligence.
