I know several things to be fact. Debtor nations around the world are printing fiat currency like mad to solve their problem. Paper money will continue to decline in value. Positive balance of trade nations are dramatically increasing their holdings of gold as a percentage of their reserves. Physical demand continues to be very strong. The silver/gold historical ratio favorable for silver. Industrial demand for silver is strong. SLW is an excellent way to get exposure while collecting a div while you wait. Seasoned management team to take advantage of opportunities. In the short run, I have NO idea where the metals might go. Hedge fund and margin liquidations, "chart patterns", seasonal issues and other things may trump what I have stated if you are a trader. IMO this is a stock to take a position in around these levels to hold for at least several years if not longer. I'm betting both the pice and payout will grow over time.
