Oil & Gas Portfolios

You compare the dividend yields, the interest income that you get on bonds, compared to the cash flows that you can get on oil and gas investments. You get much more income on those portfolios and I think personally it is better because you have the inflation hedge, even though you have more volatility, you trade the volatility.

What is the dollar going to be worth in the next 5 or 10 years? I have no idea. Maybe its going to be worth anything. But I am very confident that oil will have value. The world is not going to stop using oil, as much as these environmentalists in their fantasies want to see the entire planet powered by wind or by solar. It will not happen. I mean, maybe in 100 years but it is not going to happen in the next 5 or 10 years.
