Today in Skokie; Gold is trading firmly above the $1200/oz, and almost 70% higher than Skokies target price. But of course, just like any other ‘analyst’, the bank quickly reversed its course just a few months later when the market started to turn around. The bank, just like so many other banks, suddenly realized gold was there to stay, and started to run behind the curve as their target prices of $1100/oz were immediately met.

Just an FYI…. Retail jewelers mark up diamond wedding rings by an average of 300% up to a unbelievable 1000%. The estimates on markups are broad, but most of the reliable sources we’ve seen indicate that 300% is the usual markup. Your acquaintance who says he bought a $10,000 ring for $1,000 might be on the level.

Taking a closer look at gold’s qualities as an investment, it’s easy to see why the Oracle of Omaha has stuck to stocks. Here are five characteristics that show gold isn’t a great place to put your money:

Poor long-term returns. Let’s start with the biggest one. Investors are familiar with the phrase “past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results,” which is a sober reminder that mutual funds and managed accounts frequently mean-revert (or move back toward their average).

However, that implicit warning holds less muster when looking at the performance of entire asset classes over time. This, says Robert R. Johnson, president and CEO of the American College of Financial Services, is where gold’s inferiority comes clear.

Johnson and his colleagues in the book “Invest with the Fed” wrote that gold underperforms equities in all interest rate environments, despite its celebrated popular status as a hedge against inflation.

“From 1972 through 2013, common stocks returned 14.68 percent in falling rate environments while gold futures returned 7.85 percent. In rising rate environments, stocks returned 8.47 percent while gold only returned 4.86 percent. When rates were flat, stocks provided a gain of 10.61 percent and gold returned 8.61 percent,” Johnson says.

The first full year the dollar wasn’t tied to a set price of gold was 1972, so it’s an important year for comparison’s sake.

How do you value gold? Finance nerds will tell you that the value of any asset is the present value of all future cash flows. Old-school Wall Street firms live and die by this concept, and many a blue-chip stock is bought or sold when the “models” – rigged with well-researched growth and interest rate assumptions – flash “buy” or “sell.”

Similarly, there are all sorts of ratios – price-earnings, price-book value, price-enterprise value, etc. – that investors use to gauge whether a stockis a steal or a ripoff.

These metrics don’t exist for gold, says Tom Cassidy, chief investment officer of Univest Wealth Management Division.

“The value of a company can be estimated based on forecasts of future earnings and the growth of earnings. Gold does not have earnings and, in fact, if you want to hold physical gold there is potentially a cost to hold and insure it. Gold is worth what people are willing to pay for it on that day,” he says.

“The value of gold is determined by supply and demand, which is very hard to predict. Demand typically goes up based on fear and not fundamentals.”

You can’t exactly put a dollar figure on a fear index, can you?

Gold doesn’t throw off cash. One of the best things about stocks is their ability to produce income for the shareholder. Over time, not only do you get to keep your equity in a growing company, but you get to receive the dividends it paid out over the years, too.

Johnson puts the dilemma simply: “A major disadvantage to investing in gold is that there are no periodic cash flows made to the investor. Unlike most stocks and bonds, there are no regular cash dividends or coupon payments made to gold investors.”

Also, cash isn’t used exclusively for dividends. It can also be used to buy back stock or reinvest in the business, neither of which apply to a nonproducing asset like gold.

Little actual utility. OK, so the famed precious metal doesn’t throw off cash. But neither does it really provide much utility in the way of production value, says Andrew Chanin, CEO of PureFunds. In fact, gold isn’t even the most useful precious metal, practically speaking.

“Most gold that gets mined gets turned into bars, jewelry and coins and then stored in a vault,” Chanin says. On the other hand, “roughly two-thirds of silver produced goes to industrial applications, such as solar panels, medical devices and electronics such as computers and cell phones.”

In short, “gold lacks significant industrial utilities,” he says.
