The look on the broker’s face was priceless. He tried to remain stoic, but I saw the fleeting look of shock in his expression. Along with a bemused look that signaled his educational pedigree was insulted. He was reviewing my investment portfolio. He was indeed surprised—but what he said next didn’t surprise me.
“You’re taking way too much risk. Physical gold? What good is that going to do you?”
A dozen rebuttals ran through my mind, most of which our readers can recite, but I didn’t say anything. With his lack of understanding, what would be the point?
It was 2005, and I had been buying gold and silver bullion coins, along with inheriting a little more, so it was a sizable portion of my portfolio at the time. I also owned some common stocks, but like some investors I was getting uneasy with the real estate bubble, the vulnerability of the stock market, and the growing levels of both government and consumer debt. It seemed time to play defense, especially with how giddy many investors were, so I’d lightened up on those considerably.
The broker naturally disagreed, I’m sure partly due to the fact that he earned little to no commissions on gold. His income came from selling stock and bond investments, so we shouldn’t be too surprised that that’s what he recommended.
