These silver stocks are for insiders. They are all trash and if you are young you will learn that any survivors will be the same price in 50 years.
Investing in silver is like investing in corn. You can put it in the bin or sell it as new crop. If you put it in the bin you get nothing and hope the new crop will be higher next year. If the new crop is much higher next year you can bet there will be more corn the following year. Silver is pretty but what a lousy investment.
Silver is a commodity . In 1964 a dime was worth a dime. That silver dime today is worth 1.10-1.20. In 50 years that is it. If you are young get out of this #$%$ and into stocks that have been around for 86 years and increase their dividends. Hecla mining has been around for 125 years and is at the same price. No charge for the advice.
Why should they buy? They get option awards and are certainly going to put their money in growth equities.
