The idea of receiving dividends in the form of precious metal seems to me like getting double the dividend – the intrinsic value of the metal AND its ”Growth Potential” vis-a-vis fiat currency printing per planned economic stimulation.

Your thoughts ? Any existing ”Investment Grade” models for this idea ?

This is just starting to happen, I don’t know if it will take off or not — the first company I’m aware of that’s paying dividends in gold (sort of) is Gold Resource Corp (GORO), a company I’m not crazy about. I expect that if gold continues to rise we may see others doing this, but at this point it’s really largely a gimmick, I’d say — it’s not any less expensive than buying the gold on your own with whatever cash dividends you receive, and you get less choice and flexibility.

Thanx for prompt response. Some zealots urge physical possession of any precious metal but whom to trust as intermediary supplier – Sprott, Casey, ???
