Gold Stock Bugs Screaming Buy Have Lost Money Over the Past Four Years

Commodities / Gold & Silver Stocks Jan 31, 2010 - 02:37 AM GMT

By: Ronald_Rosen

Commodities

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe gold community for a number of years has been screaming, “Buy, buy, and buy now before it’s too late!” Advertisements to “Buy gold…..” are all over television seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year. Gold bugs claim that the gold shares will far outperform the metal. Well, if you want to know what distribution over an almost four year period looks like study this chart of the HUI. It will take you less than a moment to recognize the fact that if you owned the shares in the HUI for the past four years you now have a loss. Unfortunately this loss takes place at a moment in time when the HUI has once again made an important top and is prepared to move down with a vengeance.


   HUI MONTHLY

The monthly chart of the HUI is posted again to show that for quite some time the proper shout was not “BUY, BUY GOLD,” it was “BYE, BYE GOLD.”

   HUI MONTHLY

Gold, not to be out done by its cousin, the HUI, is also telling us that it too may be declining to such an extent that its price will represent a four year loss to all believers in its invincibility as a winner. However, all is not lost. Remember, we have an appointment to go deep sea diving. Your captain has invited all subscribers to join him in an underwater exploration most likely starting sometime between (…for subscribers only). A huge treasure of discarded valuable gold and gold shares will be found at the bottom. We will celebrate at the bottom in approximately (…for subscribers only).


    GOLD MONTHLY

For almost ten years the stories surrounding the potential rise in silver were so glowing that they made the brightness of the sun look dim. It was written that not to the sun but into “outer space” the price of silver will rise. Silver is poised to decline to a low below the low of $8.40.  Once the bottom is here between the months of (…for subscribers only) a spectacular rise will finally begin.

SILVER MONTHLY

Gold coins and bars should be considered an insurance policy. I do not believe that they should be sold regardless of a decline in their price. The percentage increase in the precious metal shares is a multiple of the rise in the price of gold. The percentage decrease in the precious metal shares is a multiple of the decline in the price of gold. The shares are obviously more volatile than the metal. There is more hope for riches placed in the shares than there is in the metal. That hope gets dashed easily on the way down. Speculators in gold and silver have their hopes for riches dashed on the way down but gold has a hard core of holders that refuse to have their holdings dislodged by fluctuations. Holding the metal gold as insurance is the way to proceed until the financial and economic mess that we are living with is resolved or at least mitigated.

not true

Not sure what you are talking about. I actually made +50% last year by buying gold stocks since 2007.

I think the main reason for that was that I did not belive gold bears and Paper Roaches and T-bonds Worms who screamed sell gold and buy bonds and dollars that are printed +250% a year.

I was just comparing base money supply in USA (look at Fed) and it was clear where the dollar goes and where gold goes.

No wonder gold jumped 50% despite heavy bashing, manipulations, massive naked short selling of the gold futures and of the gold companies stocks, leasing and so on by hired crooks. It is still off balance and have huge way up.

Considering rumors about tungsten fake bars in Frot Knox, gold have huge potential. And dollar - is just one more forgotten paper scam in 5 years from now.
