PAAS Coins 23Aug07

Excuse the pun but this is a golden opportunity to add to our holdings of this premier silver stock. It has been dramatically oversold as all the precious metals exploration and mining companies were sold off in what we can only describe as panic resulting in capitulation.

Yesterday savvy investors, who are currently searching the wreckage looking to salvage quality stocks from the debris, saw the value in this stock bidding it up by a $1.87 for a gain of 8.5%.
(As indeed we took the opportunity to accumulate SSRI)

The market capitalisation of PAAS is $1.82 billion and the P/E Ratio is down to 22.12 with 76.48 million shares outstanding. The companies’ recent quarterly results were excellent as summarised below:

“Record quarterly silver production of 4.2 million ounces, up 27% over Q2 2006.
Net income of $18.5 million ($0.24/share), up from $15.0 million ($0.21/share) in Q2 2006.
Record quarterly cash flow of $31.5 million, before changes in non-cash working capital.
Sales up 26% over Q2 2006 to $79.2 million.
Alamo Dorado in commercial production as of April 1, 2007.
Operating improvements at La Colorada resulted in a 7% production increase.
San Vicente ownership increased to 95% and mine expansion project initiated.
Construction at Manantial Espejo mine over 33% complete.”

Now just look at this chart, it clearly demonstrates that PAAS has been oversold for no other reason than a general market sell off.
