Does 2013's gold price correction offer a superior acquisition opportunity?
''Hickey: ...My second pick is gold, which I have recommended for several years. It had a terrible year in 2013, falling 28% after 12 consecutive up years. It's like seeing a stock go from $2.50 to $19 to $12. There are corrections in big secular bull markets. Gold had one in the 1970s, when it fell 46%. Then it went up eightfold. In a money-printing environment, the secular bull market in gold isn't over.''
