Given the "max value" of each position and holding it constant to today's prices, Paul's portfolio submitted to the Office of the Clerks was potentially worth over $3.5 million. With massive increase in gold prices, gold and silver mining stocks and funds have been performing very well today.
According to the stocks and funds Paul owned back in 2010, his dollar-weighted return today is 7.11%. Increasing his portfolio from yesterday's close of about $3.5 million to over $3.8 million today. Currently, the S&P 500 is down 1.9%. So, Ron Paul's portfolio is outperforming the S&P 500 by over 9.0% today.
With this return, Ron Paul can now afford the inflation yield he has been warning about.
