I like having some gold and silver in portfolios. In terms of how many silver ounces it takes to buy one ounce of gold, the historical mean has been 50 ounces. Today it takes about 67 ounces of silver to buy one ounce of gold. Silver may be the value play, but keep in mind that the chart tells us nothing about the short-term. It’s simply a nice historical snapshot.
