  • hypothetical: silver at a sustained $50/oz by Oct 2015

    I own 25000 HL shares still (down from ~55,000 in early 2011)

    bought at avg of $2.47 = $61,750 paid

    $50 Ag spot nets $0.225 div/share total (primary and secondary div)

    $5625 div per year

    Yield:

    61,750/5626 = 10.98%

    Also, at $50 silver spot, HL stock will likely be at least $12/share.

    My appreciation would then be:

    ($12 - 2.47)/$2.47 *100 = 386%

    Let's say it does that starting in Oct 2015, and my avg buy year would be Oct 2009 (I bought big in Mar 2009 and again big in July 2010), so that's a 6 year hold.

    Using no compounding, just simple math, my gain would be approx 64% per year, plus an ~11% Div on top of that from then on, plus whatever other appreciation accrues after that.

    That's why I just hold and wait. It's coming.

    In the meantime, I'm already up a few % per year and have received massive tax savings on donated shares and avoided any capgain taxes simultaneously.

    HUGE buying opportunity here at a meager ~$3.25+ per share. It's a *much* bigger, better company than it was when I bought at $1.30 and $2.30 and up.

    fitt.mary, if you could help me out here please...

    What would be the annual yield if the silver price sustained just over $50/share on a 25,000 share HL position bought at an avg of $2.47 ?

    please include the small first Div as well if you don't mind.

    It's just a matter of time now, so might as well look ahead a bit after 3 yrs of nonsense.

    Thx!

    LOl.
    That's it? You're both an idiot and a fool.
    I thought you might come back at me with something a little more clever...like maybe a "your Momma's SO fat..." joke.
    But no, just your usual ignorant and incorrect tripe. At least you know how to apply apostrophes...I guess that's something.

  • Her "buy some more" directives recently at 2.80 and 3.15 are looking pretty good...so far.

    It looks like silver crimex spot triple bottomed in the mid-$18s and have now broken out (a bit, tho not really strongly yet). Let's hope the massive shorts find some reason to start to cover...and then let's hope the masses come to their senses and finally start to draw down some of their ill-gotten-luckier-than-$hit-feb-bankster-pumped-up general stock market gains and put them somewhere safe, like PMs, as they should have been doing since 2007. Hopefully, they're not stupid enough to put their assets in ponzi bonds.

    As always, we'll see. I remain very long PMs and extremely patient, while accumulating a bit of everything PM on dips on a regular basis.
    Is 2014 the breakout year to resume the PM bull?
    we'll know once we see silver break out above ~$36 or so again.

    $3.40 is pretty remarkably cheap here, given the whacking PMs took for 3 years.

  • I mentioned a few weeks ago that my Mother told me to buy more shares of HL at 3:15. So I did (and not regretting a bit of it). Then I watched it get canned down to ~2.70 or so.

    Last week, she surprised me again and told me to grab some more under 2.80. So, I did.
    Her avg seems to be just above $3 now. She's waiting (as am I, obviously) for an eventual solid run-up in silver and a nice bump in her dividend payments from the HL silver dividend once it goes over, what is it, $25/oz?
    Either way, I'm sure she'll get nice appreciation over the next couple of years, with or without nice div payments.

    For my part, I'm looking forward to the year when I can start donating my $1.30 (2009 buys) and 2.30 (2010 buys) shares again...that's a big time tax boon for us when the price is $6-10.

    G'day sir.

  • tax time, so she looked at her small acct (this mostly PMs acct) for the first time since last year...it was down roughly 50% from the start (~4 yrs ago).

    She looked at the HL position and said, "wow, only down a few percent when everything else got hit really hard" (remember, her reference point is mid-late 2010 PM prices).
    Her: "Is HL still solid operationally financially and technically?"
    Me: "Yes, more so than ever actually".
    Her: "Ok, buy me another 1000 shares, let's average down a little bit and gain some future dividends".
    done just a few minutes ago, at $3.15

    smart tough lady.
    Our time will come.

    Do you hear that sound? It's the sound of inEVitability.

    Carry on - have a good day, week, year.

    It hurts the shorts even more on the way up as we retail folks keep buying 100 and 1000 share lots out from under their attempts to cover...and we HOLD them for later.

    Hey K,
    Don't get too excited (yet)...we have a loooong way to go to reach fair value (for the entire PM sector). This 2+ year drubbing knocked the stuffings out of mass PM investor psychology. Only the most informed were able to stomach it and even dare to buy more as they put all these PM issues on fire sale (which they still are). That buying, as you just dared do, will pay off big as what's apparent to us becomes more transparently apparent to most retail folks. Most have zero clue (and I mean zero) about the true fiscal and monetary state of affairs over the past 30 years, only coming to a head in the past few yrs.

    Buy away, and please, resist the urge to take tiny profits (unless you *really* need the income), until we at ~double from today (that'd be over $6.50 in HL, over $40 in SLW and over $40 Ag spot)....
    and even then don't part with it all. When things go bad, they're likely to go really badly, and PMs ought to be a prime safety port in that storm.

    I'm looking to part with my 25,000 HL shares in maybe 10 tranches, beginning around $10/share on up in jumps, spread over a few years. Along the way, I intend to continue donating $10k chunks per year of my remaining pile of $1.30 shares...no tax will ever be paid on those.

    In the meantime, wake me up when Ag spot passes $32 again....this year.

    Since spot Au/Ag hit a double bottom low price in the 4th Qtr, I expect HL to:

    1. report a negative earnings per share 4Qtr
    2. reduce economically viable reserve ozs (they will, like GG et al just did)
    3. increase probable resources (shoving those old higher reserves down into the resources category, PLUS they always explore and find more)
    4. report lower revs
    5. report higher sales costs (higher energy, salaries, etc)

    That said, I think the stock price continues to go up from here (with the usual downdraft bumps....but trending higher). It's likely an early entry point for those institutions that realize the in-ground resources didn't just vaporize...they are simply being re-categorized temporarily due to temporarily lower manipulated spot prices....and they know this is changing monthly, now in favor of the miner's future earnings performance.

    pile in and wait, imo.

    LOL DF, that lowlife ss is still here, eh? laughable idiot is all. It repeats the same drivel over and over as JPM steals its future, remaining blithely ignorant while he allows it to happen.

    You remember correctly.
    In fact, my HL stash right now is 25,000 sh @ $2.47 avg (down from ~50,000 sh @ more like a $3.50 avg in early 2011).

    My Mother's HL stash is only ~3000 @ ~3.1x avg, so she's doing just fine and enjoying collecting the meager Div while we wait for this PM fraud to turn up (as it currently seems to be).

    My other relatives and friends all have avgs between $4-5, and have all been *very* frustrated with the crime in progress...as they should be. I'm more like disgusted, but remain intact.

    The PM and dollar/bond scams will end, and ss will slither back into the slime from which it crawled...along with this newer stein repeato-idiot.

    have a great day and stay patient!

    and HEY BONGER!

    It's time to pile into these PM miners and ride them up for the next 2 years, imo.

  • Pinnacle Digest: Zn: bullish

    2014 is the year everything changes for zn. Since late 2012, some of the largest zn mines in the world have been shutting down (or preparing to shut down) primarily due to the fact that they contain no more economic ore. These world-class mines include:
    The Century Mine in Australia - largest open pit zn mine in the world
    Xstrata Zinc’s Brunswick Mine - largest underground zn mine in world
    Lundin Mining’s Galmoy Mine
    Lisheen Zn Mine in Ireland

    Over the last 18 months, the zn market has lost an estimated one million tonnes of annual production thanks to the closure of world-class mines.

    In fact, during 2014, zn production is expected to be eclipsed by demand for the first time in 8 years. And until 2017, the global zn supply deficit is expected to increase significantly year-over-year. This is bringing about new awareness to a metal that the developed and developing world can’t grow without.

    Brook Hunt of Wood Mackenzie “expects the zn price to average US$1.24/lb in 2014 and steadily climb thereafter, possibly challenging the previous high of US$2.08/lb that was reached in late 2006″ according to a report released from Wood Mackenzie in 2012.

    Zn currently trades at roughly $0.921/lb. In October of 2012, when it traded for roughly $0.84/lb, we wrote in Weekly Volume #287 “The reality that zn is heading into a supply deficit within 12-18 months is the reason we are writing you this week. We are not going to miss out on this opportunity.”

    Our report continued “Although zn enjoyed a few years of record high prices in the mid-2000s, thanks to a significant supply shortage, the supply deficit approaching is anticipated to be much more severe. For this reason, we believe hitting its old high of US$2.08 per pound is very realistic.”

    Given that the world is expected to enter a prolonged zn supply deficit, we expect the advanced-staged juniors and near-term producers to garner most of the attention from investors within the sector in 2014.

    Hi C,
    I've been away, sorry for the delay.

    Yep, still own them all (wouldn't sell a gnat's nut back to the bankster thieves that've artificially taken down the entire PM industry).
    Bought some more along the way to reduce my avg cost.
    GREAT buy price down here near several year lows, imo.

    Will start selling a bit here and there as AUNFF runs past $10 per, and not before (I'm fortunate not to need to, but understand if some folks have to due to timing of needs).

    btw, *everyone* should be regularly buying physical at these crushed prices, as often as possible, for at least a several year hold. Storm's a comin', as they say.

    Hang in...it'll get WAY better, and maybe in not too much time, but we'll see.

    Correct.
    I said that I still hold just below 25,000 HL at ~$2.50 avg. Two big buys around $1.30 and $2.30 in early 2009. After the drop to $9 in early 2011, I began trading out of my more expensive ($3-6) HL shares and into some other [losing also] silver miner positions, which remain underwater as for most people.

    I also said that I use those cheap HL shares strictly to donate to our fav charities, to the tune of ~$10,000 per year, and will do so until they're gone. They should last at that rate for 5-10 more tax years, and even longer as HL shares return to the $10+ area in 2014.

    It's been a long 2-3 yr struggle in PMs and HL in particular...and some of HL's add'l wounds have been self-inflicted by management decisions and style...but it should rise again soon.

    If I had fresh cash, I'd load up on HL, EXK, AG, SLW, and AUNFF here.
