Better for gold, worse for stocks

In Gold, Other Precious Metals on 07/10/2010 at 5:20 am

David Ranson of Wainwright Economics:

When gold was up more than 20% over five years, the median return from largecap stocks was 2.1%

When gold was up less than 20%, the median return from stocks was 44.7%

When gold was unchanged, the return was 52%.

When gold fell less than 20%, the return was 68.7%.

When gold fell more than 20%, the median return was 99%.

… the better for gold, the worse for stocks. Which makes the simultaneous strength of gold and equities today look all the odder.

Thanks Buttonwood
