Buy something that is depressed

Faber has been calling for gold to outperform stocks, but acknowledges that the yellow metal has been in a correction. "I'd rather buy something that is relatively depressed than something that is relatively high," he said.

But while Faber expects a correction for equities, he still owns some stocks. "The equities I own, I bought in 2008 and 2009 in Asia," he said. "The Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, where I have most of my holdings, are up four or five times since then."

Faber added, "I'm not short stocks. But I'm very worried about it."
