Dear readers, thank you for sharing a moment to leave your stocks preferences below my previous post! Some of you even trusted me to analyze some high-tech stocks, I am honored, and maybe one day I will find time to do it. Silver stocks and gold stocks are in your focus as I understood. This post is dedicated to the silver stocks.

This February I analyzed the top silver stocks (by market cap) and brought you some interesting and potentially profitable disparity that I found on the chart. After the comparison chart I asked you to pick your favorite stock among the top five and below is the graph of the voting results.

Silver Stocks: Is This Fallen Angel Worth A New Chance?

People ask me why I prefer silver over gold recently. There are several factors why I like in silver, the first is the cheap price, you don’t need to use leverage to enter the market, the second is that I have a bearish view of the gold/silver ratio and the third, but not the last thing is that it is not favored by central banks or ETFs and flies die when elephants fight.

So, in this post I would like to analyze some silver stocks. As you might remember they scored record gains last year and I thought we could see more gains as precious metals crept to the upside after consolidation.

Back in August of this year, I shared with you the comparison charts of gold and silver stocks. The precious metals hit the new highs before that, and so did the mining stocks. After that, the prolonged correction of underlying assets (gold and silver) put pressure on the mining stocks. Below is the chart showing you the 6 stocks’ behavior.

At the start of this month, I shared with you the comparative dynamics of gold and gold stocks. I joked that the commodities traders could only envy the stock investors as the results of gold purchase were laughable compared to investing in stocks. And today I would love to show you an even more surprising results of silver stocks.

Veteran Investor Rick Rule Reveals a Unique Arbitrage Opportunity

One of the hardest things for a mining executive to do may be nothing. But in a market that is not rewarding companies for pulling resources out of the ground, Sprott US Holdings Inc. CEO Rick Rule would prefer to see what he calls "optionality" rather than dilution from companies looking to justify salaries. In this interview with The Gold Report, he praises innovative precious metals streams on base metal projects and one Canadian company that is adding value and being rewarded for it.

The Gold Report: In November, you called the bottom for precious metals. Do you still believe that we're in the bottom?

Rick Rule: Yes, as long as you can define a bottom gently. I said in that same interview that the most important factor in gold pricing was the fact that it was priced in U.S. dollars, and we see a topping in the U.S. dollar. In fairness, Karen, if you had asked me that same question two years ago, I would have responded in the affirmative and been quite wrong. But I do think the upside in gold is both larger and closer than the downside in gold.

TGR: Now that the Federal Reserve has increased the key interest rate slightly, the expectation is that the value of the dollar will increase relative to other currencies. How could that be the sign of a bottom for gold? Continue reading "Veteran Investor Rick Rule Reveals a Unique Arbitrage Opportunity"
