You know I’m bullish on gold. But when it comes to silver, I’m even more bullish!
I think there are some very positive fundamentals for silver, which I’d like to share with you in just a moment.
However, I’m in very good company in my forecast for a bright future for silver, gold and other precious metals this year.
This coming Thursday, I’m hosting a special investing event with a well-known and -respected resource investment manager, and I hope you’ll be able to attend. I think it’s going to be full of surprises for investors who want to hold metals long term but make money now.
Read on for all the details …
My ‘silver bullet’ play for 2013
Silver is now poised to play "catch-up" to gold and offer investors some home-run profits. With hundreds of millions of ounces in proven reserve, silver could soar to $100 an ounce in the next few years.
We’ve just completed a new special report that covers this exciting opportunity — and much more. Take a quick look before you make any moves in your own portfolio …
According to data from CPM Group and Bloomberg, silver is outshining gold in Exchange-Traded Products (ETPs) as global demand for the white metal gets a boost from industrial consumption amid signs of an economic recovery.
Take a look at this Bloomberg chart of silver holdings over the past few months …
Holdings in silver ETPs rose 3.6% in the two months ended Feb. 28, reaching a record 19,699 metric tons on Jan. 18, data compiled by Bloomberg show.
Some more good news for silver …
We have to remember that silver is an industrial metal as well as a precious metal.
About 53% of silver is used in industrial products from televisions to batteries, according to the Silver Institute in Washington. We’ve seen industrial demand for silver drop for two years in a row as the global economy softened. Now, the economy is improving.
A recent study by Thomson Reuters forecasts that industrial use for silver will rise 7% this year to 484 million ounces and then another 6% to 511 million ounces next year, accounting for 57% of the world’s silver production.
That would be a new record high.
Then there is the mom-and-pop demand, which is also up.
Sales of American Eagle silver coins by the U.S. Mint jumped to a record in January and more than doubled in February (up 126%!) from a year earlier, the Mint’s website showed.
Do This Before Gas Hits $8 A Gallon…
If you could turn soaring gas prices into personal income, would you?
Because we’ve found out how a few smart Americans collect up to 12 “gasoline payback” checks per year… with many taking in enough to cover much more than just gas costs.
In fact, we’ve learned how you could use this “payback” approach to fund a significant portion of your whole retirement. And all indirectly at the expense of “Big Oil.”
China’s imports of silver surged 14% in January, the biggest monthly gain since July. Meanwhile, Peru’s silver production is expected to rise about 5% this year and 9% next year.
I could be wrong on the timing of silver. There are bearish forces, including a stubbornly strong U.S. dollar.
Even if silver breaks below the low it set earlier this month, there is solid support at $26. That’s not far away, and I expect bargain-hunters will pile in at that point.
My Red-Hot Global Resources subscribers are positioned nicely for an uptick in bullion prices through a junior gold-and-silver miner that’s up 18.9% since I recommended it just a couple of weeks ago.
But bullion prices don’t have to make a huge move for you to see big investing returns. Lots of strong mining companies with access to big metals deposits, many of which have been unfairly beaten down this year as the price of the metals have stagnated, are poised to soar.
I plan to show you how you can identify them — and even give you some names that are high atop my radar — next Thursday.
I’d like to invite you to join me for “Uncommon Wisdom’s Premier Gold Forecast for 2013” a special investing event I’m hosting next week on Thursday, April 4.
I will be joined by one of the premier precious metals investors in the country, Rick Rule.
If you don’t know Rick, he’s been an active investor in the gold and precious metals markets for over 35 years.
He currently operates as the chairman of one of the largest public investment firms in the world that focus exclusively on natural resources … with over $10 billion in assets under management!
In addition, Rick has been active in funding hundreds of gold exploration and mining projects …
I think it’s safe to say he has more insider knowledge on the gold and precious metals markets than any other expert out there today.
Simply put, no serious precious metals investor should miss this event. Simply click on this link and you’ll automatically receive all the details on how to attend what I expect will be an eye-opening discussion.
All the best,
