7 Precious Metal Stocks That Will Keep Your Portfolio On Trend
The growing acceptance of cryptocurrency is starting to cause mainstream investors to rethink their idea of ’store of value’. The fashionable possibilities of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and any of the dozens of altcoins that exist on the blockchain are all the rage.
However, the thing about fashion is that the more things change, the more things stay the same. Just like the simple black dress that never goes out of style, so do stocks of precious metals. One way to think about it would be to say that the existence of a growing cryptocurrency market does not change the value of precious metals.
Precious metals have long been known as a safe haven in times of market volatility and economic crisis. In fact, during the Covid-19 pandemic, gold prices jumped about 30%, surpassing the $ 2,000 mark for the first time in its history. This was at a time when the prices of many cryptocurrencies were dropping.
And precious metals have also been seen as a hedge against inflation, which seems to be more of a certainty with the Federal Reserve’s commitment to keep interest rates at historically low rates until 2023.
Whether you are looking to take your first steps in building a precious metals portfolio or want to refine the one you own, we think this special presentation is a good place to start your research. We’ve identified seven precious metals stocks looking to maintain their appeal in 2021.
