What is a safe investment now?



July 27, 2011 – Comments (7)

How safe was gold today?  How safe were stocks?  How about treasury investments?  How about foriegn currancies?  Maybe we should buy farm land with a good water supply?

  An analyst on CNBC announces he is 100% cash, buy why?  How much is cash worth?

  For me I gave up some cash for BA and XLK today.  

  Feel free to share your thoughts?

Cash is never, ever going to drop 10 or 20% in a day.  The value of cash is in its ability to buy other assets that may.

Over long periods of time cash loses value to inflation. Over short periods of time it is much less volatile than pretty much anything else.

How about filling out an application to obtain a Canadian Citizenship, where at least they are becoming ever more progressively Conservative and Business Friendly ever since Stephen Harper's election.

I expect a brief but ugly correction and would keep cash for now. Look, almost everything dropped today (my favourite stock of SLW dropped by 5% TODAY). Much better entry points could be coming soon.

Jimmy2008 - Good call.  Also good comments by everyone else.  I stepped back in yesterday and today going back to near 100% invested in my IRA.  Maybe too soon, if market drops more, I have more new IRA money to invest later.
