For all the talk of the FAANG-led stock market rally, one asset class that isn’t getting enough respect is gold.
The S&P 500 may be up 20% since year-end 2015, but gold prices are up 21%.
If inflation is subdued as many proclaim, and the outlook for stocks remains bullish, why are gold prices so strong?
