    Saw this on another financial forum and figured it might be fun here:

    2018 is coming to a close. Which would you rather have for the next year:

    10 silver 1oz bullion coins (we can say ASE or kangaroos or anything that goes for roughly spot +10%)
    or
    1 share of APPL stock ($171 USD as of today)

    One word answers are fine, or you can give a one sentence explanation if you like. Keep it short.
    Always fun to check back in a year.

    Three cartons of Asahi. On second thoughts, that might not make it until 2019.

    Going to go with 10x bullion coins.

    I would go with the coins.

    At the end of the year if silver has somehow not managed to go to the moon, I will have 10 Christmas presents already bought.

    I would take the APPL stock. Apples a great company with great products and unless they do something silly to destroy their brand they will survive and pump out more and more high end products every year and that means the stock price will only go up.

    I took the silver.

    I'd normally bet on a good stock for more growth, but silver's been down and the stock market up up up for awhile now.
