Hey cr^p for brains.... How about Apple on January 12, 2009 being $83.22 per share and today it is trading at $348.95. Makes no difference where a stock used to be. SLW had no business being at $3 in 2008 anyway and it should actually be HIGHER today....and Apple probably shouldn't have gotten that low either. Silver is down because the folks at the COMEX are manufacturing the crash via raising margins. Plain and simple. Yes, it hurts in the short term, but smart money is gobbling these prices up...and I do mean gobbling.
