    Warren and Charlie Monger HATE gold

    I'd have to say at current prices I like SILVER the best. To me its a no-brainer at $35 vs. $1780 gold. The ratio should be more like 15:1

    Especially considering all the gold ever mined is still there in jewelry, coins, and bars whereas silver has all been frittered away and lost in non-recoverable applications. There are billions of ozs of silver in landfills that will never be recovered. There used to be 10s of billions of ozs of available silver, but now only a tiny fraction.

    Investor demand alone will be a new source of billions of ozs of demand. Industrial usage is massive and growing rapidly, especially in solar.

    I also like platinum and palladium more than gold because their stockpiles are very tiny vs. gold, and like silver, these are indispensable for society. Not only are PGMs far more rare than gold, they also are harder to find and more difficult and costly to mine. Much of world supply is in difficult and problematic jurisdictions like South Africa and Russia.

    If you think that PMs are overvalued, you are WRONG. Many marginal mining companies are barely profitable or not at all. Few companies are able to increase production meaningfully even with higher prices. Material, labor, energy, and other costs are thru the roof.

    Something REAL and time-tested for thousands of years is ALWAYS preferable to PROMISES than can never be repaid. Promises issued by LIARS and CHEATS whose words are less valuable than a pile of dung. Promises issued by BANKRUPT thieves and criminals. Even though they are BK, they are not insolvent thanks to endless money printing.

    "Hi my name is Ricky Bobby and if you don't invest in PMs then F**k You!" LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL If you haven't seen Talladega Nights you won't understand that...
