Frank Holmes of US Global Investors is also calling for a “super surge” in silver and silver stocks as the yellow metal rises.
As money printing accelerates globally, gold’s chances of surpassing its old high are rising.
“With all this money printing it looks like gold could easily surge,” Frank Holmes of US Global Investors (NASDAQ:GROW) told the Investing News Network.
“We forget what happened to palladium in 2018/2019, in particular 2019 — out of nowhere it went from US$1,000 (per ounce) to US$2,700. Why can’t that happen again to gold? It’s very feasible, and you don’t have a war, you just have this new money printing.”
Holmes sees major potential for gold, and noted that based on the yellow metal’s performance during the financial crisis of 2008/2009, it could go well beyond its current price of around US$1,800 per ounce, easily taking out its previous apex of about US$1,920.
“If we take a look at the last money printing, we’re going to go from US$1,500 to US$4,000. I think over the next three years there’s a high probability of gold going to US$4,000,” he commented.
In terms of the other precious metals, Holmes also anticipates a big move for silver, which he described as a warrant on gold. “We’ve seen looking back over regressional studies that after you get a sustainable run in gold you get a 50 percent bigger move in silver. It’s just a matter of time,” he said.
“I think … as gold runs (we’re going to get) a super surge in silver and silver stocks.”
For those wondering how to get into the market, Holmes advised abiding by the “golden rule,” which suggests that investors allocate 10 percent of their portfolio to the yellow metal.
That 10 percent could include individual stocks, exchange-traded funds like the SPDR Gold Trust (ARCA:GLD) or the GO GOLD and Precious Metal Miners ETF (ARCA:GOAU) from US Global Investors. Importantly, Holmes emphasized that when buying individual stocks it’s important to look for management with a track record of success.
