“The case for investing in gold has not been this compelling in years,” Portfolio Manager Joe Foster tells Financial Advisor Magazine. In this article, he outlines the key trends in the current environment—including a weak U.S. dollar, geopolitical uncertainty, rising corporate debt levels and negative real interest rates—that may suggest a long, sustained gold rally that we believe could put the price of gold over $3,000 per ounce. He also discusses investing in gold miner stocks and what he looks for, as well as why, despite their strong run so far this year, he does not believe they are overvalued.
