My name is Alfred Horg, and I am glad that you enjoy reading my humble opinions. But I believe that you would find my opinions less humble if you review my companion blog at: http://3yeardouble.blogspot.com/
In my companion blog, you can access raw data sufficient for auditing my conclusion that I have achieved a 26.58% annualized gain between 2006 and 2017 (i.e. I beat the 6.76% annualized gain of gold by 19.82%).
I achieved my outstanding annualized gains by investing into stocks. I measure my performance against gold not to show that gold is an unwise purchase. I measure my performance against gold because gold is a store of value that has remained stable for thousands of years. In other words, gold is a reliable ruler. The U.S. dollar that most people use to measure value, in contrast to gold, is a shrinking ruler.
