SILVER: You have done the hard part!


If you managed to sit on your hands during the recent shakeout and not give any of your silver stock away, then its three cheers from all of us at silver-prices.

Seriously though, very well done, it sometimes takes balls of steel to hold on to what you have earned when the whole world is clobbering you.

If you have not got into position yet, then as we have said before, do not leave it too long. Silver is hovering around the $13.0 mark and in our very humble opinion it won’t be there for very long. We are looking for $20.0 and fairly soon, followed by a run at ‘Bunker Hunt’ levels or if you are of the younger generation, $50.0.

Our portfolio is looking very healthy at this stage and we are happy to hold what we have and invest more funds as and when the cash becomes available. All of our funds are in precious metals, gold, silver and uranium. It will be a close run race to see which eventually provides the best returns. A number of emails have posed the question of which one is the best? Well in our opinion uranium will narrowly beat silver, which will narrowly beat gold. However don’t go mad on just one stock in one sector. Pick at least six stocks in each sector and spread your risk around a little. In our experience some of the so-called best tips have turned into complete flops of a pump and dump nature. So do some work yourself and get comfortable with your portfolio. Always sit down and write down why you are buying a particular stock it will help to focus your concentration. And if your conclusion differs from the heard go with it.

Hang on to silver you are about to reap great rewards for your patience.

SILVER WHEATON CORP: 3rd Qtr Earnings Triple


“Not only did we more than triple our earnings and cash flows, compared with last year, but we also became the largest shareholder in Bear Creek; we obtained a right of first refusal on future silver production from the Peñasquito project in Mexico. All this, for a Company that is only two years old!”

A quote from Peter Barnes, President and Chief Executive Officer, which sums up what a fantastic start to commercial life this company has achieved.

The company reported Net earnings of US$22.5 million or US$0.10 per share compared to US$6.4 million or US$0.04 per share for 2005.

Here at silver prices we are expecting more good things from this company so hold on to your stock and accumulate as cash permits.

SILVER WHEATON trades as SLW on NYSE and is currently trading at $10.81.

SILVER: $15.0 By Christmas

The team here at make this rather bold prediction because that is exactly what we believe silver will do.

We are almost fully invested with only a few bucks still looking for a home! Its sensible to have some cash on hand just in case one of your favourite stocks drops out of the sky for no apparent reason and you are able to average down. For us though, this is a particular moment in time when our research says buy. We have been buyers for some time now and feel really comfortable with what we have.

However we are not complacent and we will continue to monitor the whole economic picture with regard to its effect on silver prices. Yes the volatility is not over and we will still need a mega dose of patience and courage as we suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.


If you were not pushed on to the sidelines well done, if you were, then get back in before this train leaves for higher ground.

Eagle Plains Resources Limited: Update

Eagle Plains Resources Limited, EPL on the TSX has gained approximately 30% since we first recommended it towards the end of July. It was around the 50-cent mark then and yesterday it closed at 65 cents, which is a terrific upward move in a little over 12 weeks.

Hang on to this one for the reasons that we have explained in previous articles on this site. There is a lot more to come from a company with such an innovative approach to doing business. This is a people business and good management is everything so if you can afford to hold on and accumulate then definitely do so.

It is also a multi-metal company and has silver, gold and uranium interests.

Also interesting to note is that these gains in the stock price have come without any real increase in the volume of shares traded. This suggests to us that EPL is still relatively undiscovered. When we experience sudden increases in volume as we have seen with other stocks recently then we can only guess where this stock might go!

The DOW: Overbought?

We would not dream of putting a single penny into the DOW. How overbought does it have to be before profit taking turns to panic selling?

We have had a few communiqués lately asking if its time to switch to stocks. Not for us. There is an election and things need to look as rosy as possible for the next week or so because that’s what politicians like.

Just take a look at this chart: It reminds me of a line from Bob Dylan; “Why do you have to ask?” I think it was from Maggie’s Farm!


We are sticking to the precious metals arena for the time being.

Silver Wheaton is one of our favourite silver stocks as you know and we are accumulating this stock as and when our funds allow.

Now if you missed Doug Casey on ROBtv last Wednesday go back and watch it on the web, just follow this link:

Doug Casey on ROBtv

Doug refers to the business model that is SLW as a work of genius. Sit up and listen! Doug is one of the most respected people in the investment community. Of course we agree with him and we have published our research findings on Silver Wheaton on this website a number of times in the past.

SILVER WHEATON: A quick review

Third quarter results to be announced 02 November 2006 and they should be good. We are holders of this pure silver play and intend to hold for some time to come.

As we have written here before Silver Wheaton is a new innovation in that it is a silver only company and does not own or operate any mines. For more detailed information about SLW please back track through our website as we have covered it a couple of times.

Today we want to take a quick look at the charts. As you can see SLW is holding above its own 200 DMA and putting in a strong recovery from the recent sell-off. The other technical indicators are starting to look a little overbought which could send the stock sideways for awhile but we don’t think that this anything too really lose sleep over. The current buying level is a great opportunity to make an entry or to accumulate more of this stock now. We doubt that once it rises above the $10.0 level we wont see that again in this bull market.


The silver chart itself is also showing considerable strength, which gives us much comfort when buying silver stocks. We are looking for $15.0 to be hit in the near term.

The webs only free portfolio of silver stocks provides a quick update of our silver investments to date.

CDE $4.49 BUY
HL $5.36 BUY
PAAS $19.30 BUY
SLW $9.23 BUY
SSRI $21.25 BUY
EPL $0.55 BUY
CPY $0.86 HOLD

Optimism rules here at silver prices as we are still have the firm belief that silver has a long long way to go. So, we are not selling any of our stocks. If and when we have the cash we will be purchasers of the above-mentioned silver stocks, apart from CPY, which we will hold and observe for a while.

We are researching other silver producers and will post when we have something that we think is worth our investment cash. We are about 90% invested in silver, gold and uranium stocks. We do not hold any other stocks. We think the DOW is way too high and we will remain in cash or precious metals for the future. And the future has a few years to run yet.

We are not ruling out the possibility of precious metals once again running ahead of themselves and we will post when we think that time has arrived.

For now though we will hold, watch and enjoy as things start to warm up.
