It depends on your time frame for holding the asset. I say buy plenty of ounces and then with left over money buy SLW and other miners. Repeat this cycle over the next 5 years to include gold as well. Gold and Silver assets can be risky, but their can be huge rewards when the cycle is bullish. The cycle is bullish for at least 5 more years in my opinion.
Actually, both. Physical metal and mining. If mines go broke and can't dig it out of the ground, PM goes up. When it goes up, miners go back to work and miner stocks recover. Does anyone think that the world will stop wanting PM? Theres only one way to get it, DIG!
