Over the course of the year The Golden Investor has written on different subjects, but also on different equities and financial products. Since the start of the year The Golden Investor was bullish on precious metals like gold and silver. Following the great resurgence of sustainable equities The Golden Investor also turned bullish on copper in late August. All three commodities have performed well since the time of writing, as can be seen in Figure 1.
More interestingly is the performance of the stocks discussed on The Golden Investor. In the following figure all stocks that where highlighted on The Golden Investor are listed.

For the next year, however, The Golden Investor expects a shift back from technology stocks towards dividend and value stocks. Next year will be an even trickier year as stock markets remain high, while the economic turmoil seems far from over as the roll-out of corona vaccines has yet to really take off.
