Pimco Suggests Investors Give Platinum a Second Look

Gold gets top billing when it comes to store of value,” said Johnson. “But we think given relative valuations, it makes sense for investors to look at alternatives like silver or platinum.”

Investors looking to purchase platinum can take advantage of the low prices and that may not change in the near future. Per LiveMint, “The World Platinum Investment Council estimated in November that supply will outstrip demand by 455,000 ounces in 2019, down from 505,000 ounces in 2018. But it still sees consumption rising about 2 percent, driven by industrial usage and investment flows.

Investors can also take advantage of platinum through exchange-traded funds (ETFs) like the Aberdeen Standard Platinum Shares ETF (NYSEArca: PPLT). The fund is down 4.29 percent in the last three years.
