    By Vladimir Zernov - August 19, 2013 | Tickers: CDE, EXK, AG

    Precious metals have been under pressure this year, and silver is not an exception. The weakness of global economy and uncertainty about Chinese growth have sent silver from $30 at the beginning of the year to under $20 in July. Since then, the prices have shown positive dynamics. The silver mining stocks have been punished even more than the metal itself. Now that the price environment has seen some changes more »

  • Time to Look at This Beaten Silver Miner

    By Vladimir Zernov - July 12, 2013 | Tickers: CDE, AG, PAAS

    This year has been a bad one to invest in silver miners. The stocks just kept on falling, following the drop in silver prices. The precious metal seems to have ignored all the positive news while concentrating on the negatives. The last big sell-off in silver was inspired by June’s Chinese manufacturing PMI, which has fallen to a nine-month low of 48.3. As a result, some silver stocks more »

    By Rupert Hargreaves - July 11, 2013 | Tickers: CDE, HL, PAAS

  • Basic Materials Stocks to Consider Buying

    By David Gould - December 6, 2012 | Tickers: CDE, HL, SLW

    Since it's often hard to predict basic material prices, investors should look carefully at corporate volume and overall industry supply levels. In my view, the best miners are those that are focused on accretive takeover activity while targeting high-grade regions with conservative spending and research-minded exploration. Below, I review three stocks with this perspective in mind.
