Jonathan A. Schein President & CEO Real Estate Media GlobeSt.com 12/10/03: As the Dow Jones Industrial Average hovers around the 10,000 mark, there is much to rejoice about concerning the rebounding economy. Or is there? An interesting anomaly about this particular bellwether is that the price of gold is also at an eight-year high. Typically, either equities move up or traditional safe havens–such as gold or real estate–move to higher pricing levels. Just as real estate gained new credibility as an alternative form of investment during the now-receding recession, so it is considered a safe investment during inflationary periods as well. Of course, inflation will have a direct impact on both the recovery and the stock market’s lofty highs as well. So, let’s not get too enthused about the appearance of this apparently great gift of the DJIA’s recovery. That, after all, was the initial reaction to the Trojan horse.
