New: 5 Pandemic-Proof Smallcaps You Should Know About...

In the international market, gold prices moved higher, as weakness in the dollar made the precious metals less expensive for those dealing in other currencies.

Speaking of the precious yellow metal, how lucrative has gold been as a long-term investment in India?

The chart below shows the annual returns on gold over the last 15 years...

As you can see, barring just two years - 2013 and 2015, gold has delivered positive returns in 13 of the last 15 years.

Even with the recent volatility in prices, gold and silver remain among the best performing commodities this year to combat the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier, gold had hit a record high of Rs 56,191 in Indian markets amid a global rally.

So, is it time to book profits in gold and silver?

In our latest episode of Investor Hour Podcast, Jim Rogers joins Rahul Goel to talk about gold and more....

In the podcast, he tells that he was buying gold and silver and would buy even more. He believes you can get rich with investments in gold and silver.

He is buying stocks too...but not the ones you might expect.

In this freewheeling chat, Jim also talked about China, his view on the US dollar, the opportunities in agriculture, the bubble in tech stocks, bonds, bitcoin...and more.

Moving on to the stock specific news...

SAIL is among the top buzzing stocks today after the company posted a consolidated net loss of Rs 12.3 billion for the first quarter ended June 30, mainly on account of reduced income.

The company had posted Rs 1 billion net profit in the year-ago quarter.

During the quarter under review, the company said its net profit declined to Rs 93.5 billion from Rs 150 billion in the April-June period of the preceding fiscal.

Its total income stood at Rs 113.3 billion as against Rs 148.9 billion a year ago.

The company said the pandemic outbreak and measures to contain it have caused significant disturbance and slowdown of economic activities. Consequently, the company's manufacturing operations had to be scaled down during the said quarter.

Though the operations resumed in the later part of the quarter with limited availability of workforce and disrupted supply chain, the restrictions imposed adversely impacted the sales volume and realization.

SAIL share price opened the day down by 1.5%.
