SILVER: Are you ready?

AmeriacEagle1


Make no mistake about it, now is the time to be getting into position by investing in your favourite silver stocks in order to catch this move by silver prices to higher ground.




The volatility will continue, however the trend is upward for this precious and industrial metal. We don’t care whether you invest in the silver stocks that we have invested in or not! The choice is entirely yours, but do make a choice. Remember that doing nothing is also a decision. The money in your pocket today is falling in value as you hold it, just like the salt flowing through an egg timer.

The chart below shows the fight back by silver from its recent sell off. The bounce off the 200-day moving average is just wonderful to us, but this is just the sort of move we like to see when investing our money into any market sector.


silver25Aug06



Our silver portfolio is up on average 14% in a short time with the old slugger Pan American leading the charge with a 19.5% gain. We think this is reasonably good progress, however if you have something better tell us about it and we’ll mention it on this site for the benefit of our readership. We might even invest in it if we believe that you have got it right! Now there’s a challenge.

Silver Standard Resources Inc: Increases Silver Resource

ssriLogo1

You lucky people, SSRI is now up 16.62% since we recommended it on 14 July 2006, a considerable increase in only 4 weeks.

Silver Standard Resources Inc. has just reported that its wholly owned Pitarrilla silver project has increased resources in a fairly dramatic fashion. The increased resources are comprised of measured and indicated silver resources totalling 234.3 million ounces, an increase of 249%, and inferred silver resources of 192.1 million ounces, an increase of 47.5%. This is a mining property that they have in the state of Durango, Mexico.

While surfing the web we noticed that UBS has set a target price for Silver Standard at $24! Where do they find the courage? This stock will double from our recommended price of $19.98 and in our humble opinion it will do it very soon.

We also noticed that other well-known market commentators such as Lawrence Roulston, and Peter Grandich are saying Buy Now; don’t wait, although with some qualifications. Just what we have been saying and more importantly DOING over the last few months.

Silver Standard Resources Inc. trades on Toronto as SSO and on the NASDAQ as SSRI and is presently trading at $23.30.

Don’t go too mad on it.

Silver Wheaton Corporation

If Silver Wheaton Corporation reaches its sales target of 20,000,000 ounces by 2009 and silver prices hit $20, what will the shares be worth?

This company is planning to sell 15 million ounces of silver this year at the prevailing spot price having bought it for $3.90 an ounce. If we use the current silver price of $12.0 then they are earning $8.0 per ounce multiplied by 15 million, which equals $120,000,000. The current Market capitalisation is around $2 billion, which equates to around 20 times current earnings.

Now this is ambitious but not outside the realms of possibility. Suppose Silver Wheaton achieves its target sales of 20.0 million ounces by 2009 and the silver price hits $20.0? Wow! Impossible some will shout! Not to us though, we think it is more than just possible.

Earning will be $16.0 per ounce multiplied by 20 million ounces, which equals $320 million. If the earnings multiple remains at about 20 then the Market Capitalisation would be around $6.4 billion. Divide this Market capitalisation by the number of outstanding shares, say 220 million then we have a share price of $32.0.

Now consider Silver Wheaton’s vast overheads, in 2005 they had a massive staff of 4 people and I understand that has increased to about 6 people. Overheads, what overheads?

Now consider their tax liability. They are registered in the Cayman Islands, so no tax revenue for Uncle Sam.

This is still a buy for us, SLW on the NYSE, currently trading at $9.71.

Coeur d’Alene Mines Corp: Price drop

CoeurLogo2


The threat of terrorist action today caused silver prices and gold prices to drop taking Coeur down 4% to $5.21, do you sell or buy?

We think that this is a market aberration and when this terror threat is better understood and the reality of it sinks in, precious metals will move up in a big way.

So, based on that premise we bought CDE for $5.21 with the intention being, to make a short term gain. The downside is that if we are wrong and are left with a few more Coeur shares than we had yesterday. This is not a problem for us as we intend to keep adding this stock to our portfolio as and when we can.

However, the gambler in us does want to win!

Chinese Silver usage in decline? Think again

In a recent article in ‘The China Daily’ it was reported that China is using 3 times more silver than it was 20 years ago.



ChineseCoin1

Chinese Silver Coin.


The China Daily was commenting on a report by the Gemmological Association of China, who said China had increased usage from 900 tons in 1985 to 2600 tons in 2005.

The report goes on to say that regardless of the roller coater ride in silver prices the demands for silver continues to grow at a steady pace.

So, when the talking heads pop up on TV and tell you that it is all about to slow down in China, beware! Do some research of your own if you have the time. After all it’s your hard earned cash that you, yes you, are investing.

Relax into this bull market, keep your cool, look at the big picture, implement your investment plan and stick with it.

Coeur d’Alene Mines Corp: Wins legal battle

This is an excellent outcome for Coeur as it allows the construction of their mining project at Kensington to re-commence. Coeur intend to invest around $100 million and are creating over 300 jobs in that area.

The challenge against Coeur was based on the possibility that the Corps of Engineers had issued the permit to Coeur Alaska, incorrectly. The Sierra Club, the Southeast Alaska Conservation Council, and Lynn Canal Conservation brought the case.

A delighted company president, Dennis E. Wheeler, was very appreciative of the work carried out by the Corps, the U.S. Forest Service, and the State of Alaska. And so he should be, this is a very significant outcome for Coeur.

CDE is currently trading up $0.04 at $5.46.

Silver Wheaton Corporation: Update 05 August 2006

Isn’t it just terrific to be in the middle of this reporting season and see Silver Wheaton generate Second Quarter Earnings of US$25 Million, a jump of 274%. Where else can you read such pleasurable reports?

Vancouver based Silver Wheaton Corporation is going from strength to strength and in our humble opinion should form at least a small part of anyone’s investment portfolio.

If you think, as we do that silver is about to outperform the other precious metals be aware that Silver Wheaton is the only public mining company with 100% of its revenue coming from silver production. As a pure silver play it is as pure as you can get and as silver prices head north so will this mining stock.

The future expectations are for sales to reach about 15 million ounces in 2006, increasing to 20 million ounces by 2009 and thereafter.

Maybe we shouldn’t get so excited about this company but we do prefer unhedged miners, which are totally exposed to silver prices, and Silver Wheaton is just that.

This stock trades under the symbol of SLW on the TSX and on NYSE.

Portfolio Update: 02 August 2006

Our silver portfolio gets off to a dream start.

1. Hecla Mining (HL) we paid $5.27 on the 5th July 2006 and it now stands at $5.80, a rise of 10.06%, which represents a terrific start.

2. Coeur d Alene (CDE) we paid $4.85 on the 7th July and it now stands at $5.33, a rise of 9.9%, another terrific advance. Record 2nd quarter earnings have given us a boost.

3. Silver Wheaton (SLW) we paid $9.41 on the 8th July 2006 and this stock is currently trading at $10.48, a rise of 11.37%.

4. Silver Standard resources Limited (SSRI) we acquired this stock for $19.98 on the 15th July 2006 and it now stands at $21.73, a rise of 8.76%.

5. Pan American Silver Corp (PAAS) we bought at $18.00 and it now stands at $20.49 a rise of 13.83%.

Assuming that we placed an equal amount of money into each of these mining stocks then the average gain is 10.78%.

A really pleasing start with the performance of our selection of five silver mining stocks. Our philosophy is to be bold and invest in those companies that will react to silver prices and make us money and quickly.

We are confident that our approach will pay dividends in terms of growth.

We welcome you to observe our portfolios performance and please feel free to make comparisons between us and other analysts. Our knowledge is shared with you for free so please enjoy and have a chuckle from time to time.
