What should you do with your stimulus check?

Robert Kiyosaki, the best-selling author of “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” offered this bit of advice to his 1.3 million followers on Twitter /zigman2/quotes/203180645/composite TWTR +0.87% for when that cash finally arrives:

Yes, instead of stashing away your check, Kiyosaki says load up on bitcoin /zigman2/quotes/31322028/realtime BTCUSD -2.12%  , gold /zigman2/quotes/210034565/delayed GC00 -0.43% and silver /zigman2/quotes/210315219/delayed SI00 -0.27% in the face of the dying dollar /zigman2/quotes/210598269/delayed DXY -0.10%  .

This has been a theme on Kiyosaki’s social channels for awhile and has taken on an added urgency as the coronavirus pandemic continues to weigh heavily on the stock market:

And here’s a recent episode on his YouTube channel that’s racked up more than half a million views:

Gold’s been a relatively great place to be over the past three months, having rallied more than 5% as the Dow /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA -0.04% plunged into bear-market territory. Silver and bitcoin, not so much, with both posting double-digit percentage declines over that same period of time.

Kiyosaki has been pushing silver, which he hails as the “best buy,” for a while now. Earlier this year, he told Kitco News he won’t stop buying silver until it tops $40 an ounce — it currently sits below $15. “Silver is the most undervalued, lowest-risk, best investment of all asset classes,” he said.
