"Best" investment may not be the one with the highest percentage gain. We know that AG has also been very volatile, and some investors don't like big price swings. I do, because I trade them. I never seem to be able to buy at the absolute low, nor sell at the absolute peak price. But usually I'm able to grab a big piece of the swing. IMO silver will someday be trading above $100, but the upward ride will be very volatile. Therefore, I consider AG to be a great trading stock, but not necessarily one best suited for longer term investing. SS
SS, I've noticed you usually catch a big part of the swing, but in the wrong direction. You generally buy right near the top and then get impatient and sell out near the bottom just before the next rally up.
