A quick update of our portfolio of silver stocks shows just how well these silver investments have performed to date.

We are very pleased with the progress however we have lost patience with CDE and have decided to sell it and we will replace it shortly with a new silver mining company.

Below is a list of what we have and a record of the progress that has been achieved to date.

HL $8.28 BUY
Bought for $5.27 has gained 57.12%

PAAS $31.03 BUY
Bought for $18.00 has gained 72.39%

SLW $10.89 WATCH
Bought for $9.41 has gained 15.73%

CDE $4.68 SELL
Bought for $4.85 has lost 3.51%. Our patience has come to an end. The geopolitical shadow hangs heavy on CDE, which has resulted in the market perception of this stock turning from exciting to dull. CDE may well come back and has recently made a great effort to regain lost ground. However we feel that this recent upward move could be short lived so we will go back to the sidelines and watch how it develops from here on in.

SSRI $36.05 BUY
Bought for $19.98 has gained 80.43%
The average gain for the above silver stocks is 44.39%. We try to invest in ‘quality’ silver stocks and expect them to rocket as and when silver takes a run at $20.00, which we believe, is imminent.

EPL $0.80 HOLD
Bought for $0.53 has gained 50.9%. This stock has a reputation as a project generator with the ability to develop and then spin off a project. Investing in EPL is a bet that their management can continue to surprise by way of innovation.

Our research continues but it is difficult to better the above list.

For now though we are content to hold and enjoy as steady progress is being made.
We are expecting silver to move to higher ground and do it very soon so hang on in there we also expect the above stocks to move dramatically higher along with silver.

SILVER: Preparing to challenge recent highs?

After a $0.44 price rise yesterday, Silver looks to be poised for an ascent above and beyond its recent highs of $15.00 or so.

From the chart we can see that silver has been dragged down by the bears but has managed to hold at the 200DMA and rally back again. It is now in position for a serious assault on $15.00 and from there we expect silver to take a run at the $20.00 level.


When this happens we believe that some sleepy investors will be awakened to the true value of silver as a metal and as an investment in terms of holding the metal and silver mining stocks. Their participation will bring new money into this small sector of the market and it will chase prices ever higher.

So now is the time to get your portfolio into position to take the maximum possible advantage of what’s to come. We will shortly add some new silver stocks to our portfolio and will indeed publish the reasons for putting hard earned cash into such investment vehicles.

When we do this we invite you to comment and add your thoughts to the debate as we may well have missed a vital piece of information. Your comments add balance to the debate and all of our other readers will benefit from it.

Time to get moving if you are not already in!

Silver compared to silver stocks


This is an interesting chart, which clearly demonstrates that good quality silver stocks can outperform silver by a long way.

As we can see for the graph the quality silver stocks have performed very well indeed when compared to silvers progress to date. However a long political shadow hangs over CDE so we have decided to re-deploy our hard earned cash elsewhere.

Our portfolio is small at the moment but is about to grow as we have been researching a number of very interesting possibilities.

We believe that it is not the number of stocks that you have in your portfolio but the quality that counts and that quality will pay handsome dividends in the longer term. Come to think of it, it’s not doing too badly in the short term.

Go gently.

SILVER: Preparing for another attempt at new highs?

Having been hammered back from $14.00 silver once again brushes off the dust and climbs back into the ring.


From the chart we can see that despite the sell off silver did not break through its own 200 DMA but managed to hold and then bounce to higher ground. This is great to see but we must expect more volatility as more and more speculators decide to try their hand in this sector of the market.

In our humble opinion we believe that the longer silver goes sideways the greater the breakout when it finally arrives. That could be a downside breakout I hear say, yes indeed it could be. However we think that this Bull Market has a long way to go yet so hang on to your stocks and be patient, the best is yet to come!

CDE: Disappoints

This is a real shame that such a well-managed stock is suffering at the moment.


From the chart we can see that a recovery has begun and that the technical indicators are heading north however as an investment we are not impressed. Stock performance is all about comparative analysis and when compared to other silver stocks in this sector CDE pales badly.

PAAS and SSRI have out performed CDE by a long way so we have to ask the question of why do we still have our hard earned money in this stock? Well we had hoped that the Bolivian political situation would only affect the stock for a short time but on reflection that does not appear to be the case. Our conclusion is not fight this stock but realise that this situation may persist for a long time to come, in which case we have got to move on.

There is nothing more distressing than being in a Bull Market but on the wrong stock. We will reduce our holdings from here and place CDE on the Watch List just in case the environment becomes friendlier towards CDE.

COEUR D ALENE MINES: The shadow of Bolivian politics

It’s a pity that the geopolitical situation in Bolivia is casting a huge shadow over CDE, which in our opinion is one of the best silver mining companies around today.

From the chart we can see that CDE has taken a battering and looks to be in a in a beaten state. Has this silver stock now found a support level, which incorporates the political situation, or could it drop further? The question now is where do we go from here? Do we sell and take a small loss, do we buy more and average down or do we continue to observe?


An anti capitalist government wishing to use its weight does not fill us with confidence. Can the management at CDE negotiate their way through this minefield and strike a win-win deal with present government? Its all a little hazy and does not get any clearer with contradictory statements coming out of La Paz on a seemingly daily basis.

For now we will remain patient and observe the movements of the market. Market perception is a powerful tool and should not be ignored. If a recovery begins to show itself then we may well put more money in to this stock to reduce our average price.

Be patient for now.

Coeur de Alene Mines trades as CDE on the NYSE.

SILVER: Takes a fall so BUY

As we can see from the chart this precious metal along with the usual suspects took a battering in the recent wash out.


Now is not the time to panic or sell.

If you have the funds then accumulate your favourite silver stocks as quickly as possible.

We can only describe this situation as the last watering hole before the desert. The fundamentals have not changed, demand is still high along with inflation and the world is not a safer place.

This low price start to 2007 is the opportunity of a lifetime for those have been on the sidelines waiting for a suitable moment to get involved. You may not like our portfolio and that does not matter one jot. But please buy your preferred stocks or the recommendations from your favourite financial letter writer and do it soon.

Happy New Year.

SILVER: Breezes through $14.00

We are now ahead of schedule with our prediction that silver will break through $15.00 by the end of the year. So expect some volatility in the near term but don’t be put off and hang on to your silver investments.


There will be knockers all the way up.

People who think that silver is going nowhere, people who did not get in, people who want a major correction so that they can make an investment. These price levels will soon be history so if you are not in buy a few silver stocks now and forget about them for a year or so, you wont regret it.
