    I am posting this to a very biased group!! If you had to hold it for the next five years, would you rather have one share of Amazon stock or 1.25 oz of gold? At today's prices, they are worth the same.

    5 Years?
    Do you want to hold bullion,
    or get an investment that could increase in overall value and may in the future start paying dividends?

    I'd probably get the AMZN though not right now $1530/sh as it's been tumbling since about $2,000/share

    hows that for biased?

    except his question was specifically AMZN vs GOLD.

    I thought about adding in other stocks but that would just muddy the question.

    I would take Amazon. That company is not going under. They don't only sell stuff on the Interwebs.

    Looking backwards, you would have almost quadrupled your money with Amazon if you bought it 5 years ago today. You would have lost a little bit with gold. But that is the past of course. I feel gold has too much of a ceiling 5 years from now.

    **This is my personal opinion and not financial advice for anyone...purchase either at your own risk and I take no responsibility for how much you make or don't make**

    Now let me go cash my Cisco dividend.

    I'll take the gold, in fact I've been buying more gold lately and not a single share of Amazon.

    It's really just a bad question. Buying a single stock of a single company is foolish. Investing everything into gold is idiotic.

    If the question were would you rather have an ounce of gold or put $1225 into the market, the better answer is you should put it in the market.

    But I refuse to accept even that. I would use that $1225 to buy 1/10 oz of gold and put the remaining $1100 into ETFs of stocks and bonds.

    I was having some fun. It could have been a general market comparison just the same. I was talking with a guy that has 100% of his investments (a big number) in PMs and is gambling on the next "pop". He takes the opposite approach that I do when it comes to investing. We had a fun conversation. It just so happened that Amazon was the stock we picked for the discussion. Could have been and S&P Fund just as easy. I was curious what the bullion guys would say here and I thought more would be leaning more towards his school of thought.

    I'm a newbie, so, please forgive my ignorance, but what are "PMs"?

    Private messages. You'll get a lot of them for asking dumb questions.

    Why are you being mean? I'm a new bullion collector, I don't know very much and have spent the past few months reading all I can, I've invested some money and have lots of questions. I've been trying to learn by reading and have been reading posts on this forum for a few days. I finally decide to post, and then you go ahead and act like a meany! I am starting to regret my decision to join this forum. Is everyone here obnoxious or just you?

    It's not just him, but it's also not everyone.

    In this context, PMs are Precious Metals.
