This is Where Marc Faber sees Opportunities
"Over the last 12 to 24 months, many sectors have had huge declines," the editor and publisher of the Gloom, Boom & Doom report told CNBC's "Fast Money" traders on Tuesday. "And I see here, there are some opportunities."
"[The U.S. dollar] is not a desirable currency," said Faber, perplexed why the world has been so "enthusiastic" about the greenback. "I think the most desirable currency will be gold, silver, platinum and palladium. I still think the mining sector has embarked on a new bull market."
"I think that in Asia, the sentiment turned very bearish at the end of last year and especially concerning China and the Chinese economy. And as a result of that, Macau gaming companies got slaughtered," Faber said. "And now they are, in my view, at a relatively attractive level. They started to move up: [Las Vegas] Sands China, Wynn China."
"I don't think it's a bargain by any means, but I believe China despite its near-term problems that could be very substantial, will in the long run be a very rewarding investment destination."
