Adrian Day, chairman and CEO of Adrian Day Asset Management, chatted with the Investing News Network at the 2018 Prospectors & Developers Association of Canada conference in Toronto.
Day opened the interview by reminding investors that gold performed well last year — in fact, it increased 13 percent. For the most part, Day was interested in looking ahead for gold and stated that “the main events for gold are interest rates, inflation and concern about other markets.” He then added, “all of these add up to a positive year for gold.”
While he noted that US Federal Reserve interest rate hikes and inflation have an effect on gold, he also weighed in on bitcoin specifically and how he sees it in relation to gold and gold stocks.
Day stated, “I think bitcoin has had much more of an effect on gold stocks, particularly junior gold stocks, because it is the same kind of investor who is buying junior gold stocks, bitcoin, marijuana — so it has been competition for that.”
He continued on to say, “for gold itself, I think it is very marginal. It’s definitely competition and it’s definitely a negative for gold, but to me it’s very, very slight.”
