Ease Up on Stocks, Gradually Accumulate Gold: Marc Faber - Yahoo!Finance (blog)

"Where investors were overly negative last year, they are now overly optimistic about the prospects for the U.S. economy," Faber says, pointing to the ''huge bull run'' we have had since 2009. "I think the (stock) market is very overbought."

While he still supports gold's long term opportunity, he feels the precious metal is "still in correction phase" and that "individual investors should gradually accumulate gold" because of the outlook for continued money printing by the Fed and other central banks around the world.

His advice to investors is ''to hold some cash, hold some precious metals, hold some equities, and hold some real estate," he says, adding that "if one asset class or the other declines substantially move money into that asset class."

Marc Faber is a famous contrarian investor and the publisher of the Gloom Boom & Doom Report newsletter.
