Here's another quick comparison between PAAS and SSRI =
SSRI TOTAL MARKET CAP: 667 MILLION VS. PAAS TOTAL MARKET CAP: 1.1+ BILLION
SSRI total inferred and indicated silver in the ground: 956.5 million ounces
PAAS total proven, inferred and indicated silver in the ground: 744 million ounces
And don't forget the fact that SSRI has converted 20% of their cash to silver bullion. PAAS isn't a bad investment, there are just better opportunities for your money.
The silver bull will be greatly benefical to those that are positioning now. Which is why I hold a large portion of my PF in SSRI. Another large chunck is in Capstone Gold (which really they should change the name to Capstone Silver). 2 of my other favorites in the silver arena are Impact Minerals and First Majestic Resources. I continue to add to all of my positions as current prices are attractive.
