The answer depends on what type of investor you are, and what kind of investing you want to do. I listen to a lot of talk radio, and all I hear are commercials from talk show hosts endorsing gold as an investment.

Gold has been hot lately, as it rose to about $900 an ounce, which has probably made it literally a hot commodity lately.

Green is the New Gold: Nine Environmentally Friendly Investment ...
Hoboken, NJ (June 2008)—Sure, you’d like to “go green” in your investments. If you could find some financially sound options, why not? As environmental issues have heated up and gained more and more press, you’ve embraced the concept of saving the planet. You’ve changed your light bulbs, strived to live the “reduce, reuse, and recycle” mantra, and even traded in your gas-guzzling SUV for a hybrid. (Well, at least you’ve considered it!)

2010 Mid year commentary – Investment Thoughts « David's Blog

Price-earnings ratios are once again becoming attractive. While they may seem high and nowhere near lows that sparked past bull markets investors would be wise to begin putting together lists of favorite stocks and begin monitoring prices in anticipation of putting cash to work. We may take 6 months to a year to find a bottom but for investors it is better to well prepared in the event a buying opportunity comes along. At this moment, we are in a stock pickers market and you ... market research, surveys and trends

Guess Who's Betting On Inflation! | LIVING OFF DIVIDENDS & PASSIVE ...
If you’ve been reading the popular press for the past 6 months, there’s been a slew of articles talking about deflation. I’ve been somewhat skeptical of the long term probability of deflation and have been investing in gold and commodities in anticipation of inflation. Looks like I was a little early to the game (which, on Wall Street is just the same as being wrong!). Now however, it looks like we are warming up the printing presses and gold has hit $1,000 twice in a week in anticipation of future inflation. Legendary hedge fund manager John Paulson, who made $2.5 Billion last year from his trades, has been ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
The Coming Housing and Dollar Collapse: Interview with ...
We continue our series of national housing expert interviews by chatting with John Rubino. John operates the finance site ''DollarCollapse.com'', and has published several books on real estate and investing. In this interview, he gives advice on surviving in today's housing market, offers a guess on when housing might hit bottom, and details the coming collapse of the U.S. Dollar. By then I'd already lived through three bubbles: gold in the late 1970s (when I was too young to actually invest but was still paying attention), junk bonds in the 80s and tech in the 90s. Housing had all the hallmarks: ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

keep your cool in a scary market
(Money Magazine) -- You knew it couldn't go on forever. And deep down, the spectacular run-up in stocks that began when the bear market bottomed in March 2009 was actually making you a little nervous.

.  But I've been noticing a new gold rush under way. TV news shows, infomercials and newspaper ads are popping up all over encouraging people to invest in gold as an alternative to stocks.
