Gold vs Silver vs Real estate Or Anything else

POSTED BY Nayandeep Saha ON September 7, 2011 11:54 pm COMMENTS (5)


I would like to invest some of my savings. I am thinking where to park my money…. will that be gold or silver or real estate?

I personally prefer real estate as the  first priority, then silver and lastly gold.

Real estate.. because I am thinking of renting that out later to get a constant source of income. Or since I am buying it around an emerging IT hub area may be I can sell it off after 3yrs that might give me a 15% annualised return after repaying the home loan(if I need to take it).

Also I found that Religare has come up with there NCD issue, where they have mentioned guaranteed annualised return as 12%. But no where have they mentioned whether it’s cumulative or simple ROI.

Any advice will be highly appreciated

    Yes. Equity should give better returns..

    On the funds u have, continue only with dsp small and midcap, the rest u can switch to dsp top 100 equity fund.

    Thanks Abhishek for your suggestions. I currently have DSP BlackRock Small and Midcap fund, SBI Bluechip fund and Sundaram Select Small Cap fund bought at NFO.

    So you think equities give better returns than gold or silver in the long run?

    You have not mentioned your time horizon.

    1. Nayandeep Saha says:

      It’s for long term like 15-20 yrs. I am not very comfortable in short term profit bookings.

        Considering ur time horizon, equity will be the best option.
        Invest lumpsum and start a STP into Equity Fund. Have a look at flex stp offerred by hdfc and icici pru mutual fund.

        Happy investing !
