  • Consider This Silver Miner That Trades At A Discount To Book

    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 »

  • Why You Should Invest in Silver over Gold

    By Chris Johnson - August 9, 2013 | Tickers: AG, PAAS, SLW

    On Monday, gold futures fell for the fifth straight session, capping the longest slump since May, as a stronger dollar crimped demand for the precious metal. For many, this comes as no surprise. Gold gets all of the press, but what about silver? Silver is not going to remain gold's ugly little brother for much longer.

    The last decade was the decade of gold. But it's my more »

  • Silver Companies Ready to Launch

    By Usman Ghani - July 29, 2013 | Tickers: AG, PAAS, SLW

    We know the age old rule, right? When the U.S. dollar strengthens, the value of precious metals falls, and when it weakens, we see a surge in the price of these metals. Well, there are other factors too which influence the price of these precious metals.

    One of them is the demand for precious metals coming from the two upcoming giants: India and China. The demand for these precious more »

  • Time for a Turnaround in Precious Metals?

    By Jacob Wolinsky - July 16, 2013 | Tickers: AGI, AUQ, AG

    After losing tremendous weight in recent months, gold and silver stocks are looking leaner and fit for a rally. There are some fundamental reasons behind this positive take on precious metal stocks such as First Majestic Silver (NYSE: AG), Alamos Gold (NYSE: AGI) and AuRico Gold (NYSE: AUQ). Here is a closer look:

  • 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 Mike Thiessen - March 25, 2013 | Tickers: AG, FSM, SLW

    Investors who have followed the investing moves of famed commodities investor Eric Sprott over the past few years are well aware of the man's penchant for physical gold and silver. Along with many other seasoned, well-respected investors, he is a fervent long-term precious metals bull who believes that the "easy money" policies of the various Western central banks will undermine the broader currency markets and lead to a sharp more »

    "Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold."

                                                                              -Maurice Setter

    Silver often plays a secondary role to its more illuminating sibling – gold – in the precious metals family. However, the potential for returns for investors exists with companies aggressively advancing their silver programs in diverse regions of the globe. The following are some silver expectations to examine from three enterprises operating in this industry:

  • Is Silver in Mint Condition?

    By Michael Ugulini - February 22, 2013 | Tickers: AG, PAAS, SLW

    Every cloud has its silver lining, but it is sometimes a little difficult to get it to the mint.

    Don Marquis (Author, 1878-1937)

    What's up with silver and silver companies for 2013 and beyond? A look at past performance, as well as forecasts already made, is giving investors some indication. Is silver in mint condition, or are there caveats to consider before taking a shine to a major silver more »

  • Is Silver The Next Big Thing?

    By Pierre De Vitton - December 17, 2012 | Tickers: AG, PAAS, SLW

    I don't know about you but I'm getting tired of gold. Gold gets all the good press and everybody loves to talk about how great gold is (everybody except for Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger). Do the test: choose ten people around you at random with some knowledge of financial matters and ask them what the price of gold is at the moment. I would bet that most more »

  • Demystifying Silver

    By Douglas Ehrman - November 2, 2012 | Tickers: AG, SLW

    One of the biggest challenges faced by investors when considering silver companies is the reality that looking at earnings consistency and other common metrics can be seriously misleading. Over the past several years, silver prices have ranged from below $25 per ounce to over $50. What this means for these metrics is that the variability in earnings is likely to be dramatic and not a good forward-looking indicator of where more »

  • Big Upside in This Silver Mine

    By Piyush Arora - October 30, 2012 | Tickers: CDE, AG, FSM, SLW, SVM

    Many investors prefer to not invest directly in silver because the commodity’s volatility is too high. It is due to this reason that investors are more willing to invest in silver mining companies like First Majestic Silver Corp (NYSE: AG). Unlike silver streaming companies, the silver mining business model is not highly leveraged. Even if silver prices consolidate at inflated levels, the company would make profits.

  • A Gold Mine in Silver Streaming?

    By Piyush Arora - September 7, 2012 | Tickers: CDE, AG, SLV, SLW

    Whenever investors see a problem in Europe, they rush to precious metals like Gold and Silver. The prices of both the commodities are sentiment driven and have risen significantly over the past two years, but in the current year, we haven’t seen any fireworks. The reason could be because 2012 has been a less dramatic year, which has kept the prices in range, and commodity investors would not be more »

    Gold and gold miners get a good deal of attention from investors who want to invest in precious metals, but what about silver? Over the last two years Silver Wheaton (NYSE: SLW) has returned 55% against about 30% for the SPDR Gold ETF (GLD) and a decline in the Gold Miners' ETF (GDX) which tracks gold mining companies.

    SPDR’s Gold Shares (NYSEMKT: GLD) has been offered to traders as a means of trading physical gold without taking delivery. The idea of being able to trade commodities like stocks is a day-trader’s dream. However, does it pass the comparison test on all levels?
