Video first released on 10/2/13

“The world ought to have much less faith in central banks, and as that reasoned distrust of a broken model grows, the gold price, I think, will appreciate,” Grant tells The Daily Ticker. “Gold is cheap at this price.”

In addition to gold, Grant likes Russian oil companies, such as Lukoil. “These companies priced as if they were going out of business,” says Grant. “They’re not. The balance sheets are okay. There’s insider buying. They are hugely and glisteningly cheap–2.5 to 6.5 times earnings…[they have] reserves in the ground…pay dividends and nobody likes them.”
