Fisher Investments’ Ken Fisher Gives His Thoughts on Gold’s Recent Rise

Fisher Investments’ founder, Executive Chairman and Co-Chief Investment Officer Ken Fisher discusses gold’s recent rise and what it means for investors. Ken says some investors think of gold as an inflation hedge or volatility dampener and that is potentially why gold has performed well recently. However, Ken points out that gold has historically not provided investors the benefits many perceive.

Ken explains that gold is a commodity with relatively few use cases compared to other commodities, such as copper and oil, but with lower supply—which can make it very difficult to forecast its price. Ken also points out that positive gold returns have been historically concentrated in short periods of time, which require impeccable market timing. For example, the price of gold peaked in 1980 and didn’t surpass that level for over 30 years despite ongoing inflation and volatility. While Ken acknowledges gold can do well in short periods, he says stocks and bonds have had higher returns than gold with less volatility over the long-term—making them more suitable for most investors.
