Is Gold Still a Buy?

My favorite gold stock is up 179% since I introduced it as a buy in my stock letter Brush Up on Stocks in late November 2015, and then purchased it. I reiterated it several times along the way as a “must own” stock before the big move up.

This compares to a 69% gain for the gold miners ETF GLD, and 15% for the gold ETF GLD.

Are gold and gold miners still a buy? Probably.

“Gold will shuffle around at this level. But I can’t help but think it goes higher,” says Tom Winmill, who manages the Midas Fund (MIDSX).

John Hathaway, manager of the Tocqueville Gold Fund (TGLDX), thinks gold is in a sustained uptrend that could take out prior highs, over the next few years.

Of course, no one knows for sure. But these and other gold experts I talked with for my MarketWatch column on gold cite a growing lack of confidence in the Fed and other central banks, a “war on cash,” growing use of gold as portfolio insurance, a declining dollar, and a gold shortage that will benefit my favorite gold mining stock and others, due to an overall lack of investment in mines in the past several years.
