For long years this white metal has mostly lagged the yellow one, relentlessly battering silver sentiment. But gold surging into year-end 2018 finally sparked some life into moribund silver. This is a bullish sign, as silver has soared in the past once rising prices reach critical mass in attracting new investment capital. Silver looks to be nearing that point again. Despite a good finish, 2018 was a rough year for silver. Its price slumped 8.6%, way worse than gold’s -1.6% performance. And that still masks miserable intra-year action. At worst in mid-November, silver had plunged 17.3% year-to-date. That was 2.2x gold’s comparable loss, and at $13.99 silver languished at a major 2.8-year low. A soul-crushing 96% of its early-2016 bull market had been reversed and lost! </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-datestamp field-field-article-published-date"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <span class="date-display-single">Friday, February 1st</span> </div> </div> </div> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="color: black;">Silver recently started outperforming gold again, a watershed event.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp; </span>For long years this white metal has mostly lagged the yellow one, relentlessly battering silver sentiment.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp; </span>But gold surging into year-end 2018 finally sparked some life into moribund silver.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes;">&nbsp; </span>This is a bullish sign, as silver has soared in the past once rising prices reach critical mass in attracting new investment capital.<span style="mso-spa</span></p><p><a href="http://www2.silverseek.com/commentary/silver-outperforming-gold-17566" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Fri, 01 Feb 2019 16:39:57 +0000 Adam Hamilton 17566 at http://www2.silverseek.com Silver Miners’ Q3’18 Fundamentals http://www2.silverseek.com/commentary/silver-miners%E2%80%99-q3%E2%80%9918-fundamentals-17491 <div class="field field-type-text field-field-article-snippet"> <div class="field-label">Snippet:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The major silver miners’ stocks have been largely abandoned this year, spiraling to brutal multi-year lows.

Of course that reflects investors’ lack of interest in silver itself. It has greatly lagged, not following gold higher like usual over the past year and a half. That’s really torpedoed silver-stock sentiment, making for a challenging environment for silver miners. But they’re weathering it as their recently-released Q1’18 results show. Four times a year publicly-traded companies release treasure troves of valuable information in the form of quarterly reports. Companies trading in the States are required to file 10-Qs with the US Securities and Exchange Commission by 45 calendar days after quarter-ends. Canadian companies have similar requirements.
