    I've not read his book, not a fan, but this video is very good and he explains it better than most people. Sometimes, it takes experience and many failures to know...



    Fast forward to 6min 30s.

    I've heard other reports of countries reversing the IMF advice or directions and turning their economies round.

    The status of the IMF puzzles me.

    Its predictions are wrong, its loans are onerous and destructive and it's run by crooks.

    That aside, dividends good!

    Funny, you keep talking about silver and gold.

    If you want dividends then you’re investing in companies that are basically saying there is no room for growth in the future.

    Growth stocks are better. It’s that simple.

    Edit to add: and buy your own drugs instead of bumming mine.

    If you theoretically bought the All ordinaries in 2007 at the last peak then in 2019 it finally came back to that peak. In other words it took 12 years to get your money back if you invested in an ETF that covers the market. But, and here's the big but, you would have picked up between 5 to 7% fully franked dividends during that whole time which is not a bad effort considering the ultra low interest rates we have right now.

    To a correction or crash coming, I don't know. Our markets always crash with the DOW so if the DOW was to crash so would ours. But one thing to note, during presidential election years (like 2020) the DOW tends to outperform. Since 1928 there has been 28 presidential election years, during that time only 4 were ever negative and the last one was 2008. The odds are stacked in your favour for a positive year this year. But when the SHTF nothing will save you and all the statistics, charts, gurus, brokers, tea leaf readers in the world won't mean much, most of them got the GFC wrong.

    I would say (and have done so myself) that if you are getting worried about the rise of the DOW and XAO then perhaps take a bit off the table and squirrel it away. You never go broke taking a profit. It is a bitter pill to take but at least you won't lose half your money overnight, good luck out there.

    And something you can't do with silver if you re invested that 7% compounding the returns over that time frame you would be much further again

    Lol at 7% per year.

    Silver 20% since July 2019.

    Damn that’s some sideways action.

    <=====> isn’t that how it goes?

    Yes but silver is down over 60% since 2011.

    If you are just talking stocks vs. PMs and no diversification, there really is no argument to this. If someone put their $$$ in the US stock market for the past 8 years they would be better off than holding silver or gold during the same time frame. Not even close.

    Even if you bought your silver and gold in 2008 and held it till now. I have friends with IRAs and such that are 400-500% higher than what they were in 2010 or so. And they are conservative investors nothing flashy.

    It might be a different story once a stock market crash does finally happen.

    I’m not. I’m just firing back meaningless posts at him because I learnt a long time ago that it’s pointless trying to have a meaningful conversation with a homophobic 15yo private school boy.

    7% dividends per year on top of the 50+++% capital gains

    Silver is garbage in comparison
