    An asset doesn’t have to generate income. Gold in your safe don’t generate income. The house you live in doesn’t generate income. A company stock that doesn’t pay a dividend doesn’t generate income. Your coin collection doesn’t generate income. Etc.

    It is something of value.  Many assets do not generate income.  Cash in a zero interest checking account generates no income.
