  • Silver

Compared to the popular crisis currency, gold, silver is somewhat neglected. Silver is in demand from a wide variety of sectors such as electromobility, solar and medical technology. Price increases of the precious metal are, therefore only a question of time. The world's largest silver producer is Mexico, with around 190 million ounces of silver annually. We present three companies that are profiting from Mexico's substantial silver deposits. Who has the greatest potential?

About the author


First Majestic Silver - among the TOP 20 of the world's largest silver producers

First Majestic's beginnings date back to 2004 when it acquired its first mine. Since then, the Company, founded by CEO Keith Neumeyer, has been a success story. The current stock market value of the Canadian Company is CAD 3.6 billion.

Today, the Company operates three silver mines in Mexico - the San Dimas Silver & Gold Mine, the Santa Elena Silver & Gold Mine and the La Encantada Silver Mine. All three mines are 100% owned. The Company also owns an additional eight exploration and development projects in the silver sector. First Majestic's formula for success consists of several aspects. In particular, it is the acquisition of good assets (mines and non-producing projects) and their further development. Another point is process innovations, which increase the output of raw materials or reduce costs.

The Company is already among the TOP 20 largest silver producers in the world. This year, First Majestic will produce about 23 million ounces of silver equivalent, a slight decrease from last year's figure due to Covid. Analysts, we think, give the stock a fairly moderate 15% potential upside. Higher silver prices and rising production next year should boost the share price significantly.

Silver Viper Minerals - impressive news

Silver Viper Minerals is focused on the exploration of gold & silver deposits in the state of Sonora, in northwestern Mexico. The Company is in a relatively early corporate stage. The core of its activities is the wholly-owned La Virginia Gold-Silver Project. In addition, Silver Viper has an option to acquire 100% of additional claims (Rubi-Esperanza).

The previous owners of the property have drilled a total of 188 holes totalling 52,000 meters. Silver Viper has used this excellent data to define new targets and has had success in recent months with the discovery of the El Rubi zone, which hosts high-grade precious metals.

Last week, the Canadians released impressive news with drill results confirming high silver & gold grades at the El Rubi Zone. Further drilling showed a southern extension of the mineralized zone, as well as the continuation of existing mineralization trends. Furthermore, the Company reported that test results should also indicate a high recovery rate of precious metals. First and foremost, new drill data and the advancement of the project will prove to be share price drivers. They will significantly increase the stock market value from the current level of around 30 million over the next year.

Endeavour Silver - Sale of El Cubo Mine

Endeavour Silver is a mid-tier silver and gold producer that owns three producing mines in Mexico. The Company intends to continue to increase production and develop mines from its non-producing projects.
Nevertheless, the Company is also opportunistically taking advantage of opportunities. Last Friday, it reported the sale of the El Cubo mine to VanGold Mining Corp.

The logic behind this transaction is that El Cubo is a good fit with VanGold Mining's asset the Pinguico, and in perspective, this could become a producing mine. Endeavour will receive cash and shares worth CAD 15 million. Under certain conditions, another CAD 3 million could be added. As a result of the transaction, Endeavour Silver will become VanGold's largest shareholder with 16%.

Endeavour Silver is currently valued at just under CAD 900 million. Analysts see little upside potential at the current level, given the average price target of CAD 5.99.

Blackrock Silver, K+S, Barrick Gold - China first!

  • Silver

The Chinese government is demonstrating with all its might who has the last word. The regulation of industries and business models, which, as recently seen in the Chinese education sector, destroys the existence of companies and has weighed heavily on Chinese stocks in recent days. If the situation continues to escalate, it could easily negatively color the world's stock markets' mood. That is when it is worth looking at precious metals stocks, as they usually benefit disproportionately from rising commodity prices in times of crisis. Who will come out on top?

First Majestic Silver, Silver Viper, Fortuna Silver Mines - Is silver picking up again?

  • Silver

Inflation in the US climbed again in June, reaching 5.4%, the highest level since 2008. With the expansion of the money supply in the US, it is no wonder. The money supply also increased significantly in Europe. In some cases by EUR 50 billion in one week. Nevertheless, the inflation rate in Germany fell slightly to 2.3%. An end to money printing is not in sight. In contrast to gold, silver is a sought-after raw material in the industry. The price increase in precious metals has stopped since June, and there has been consolidation. It is only a matter of time when the price of silver will pick up again as inflation forces people to invest their money in assets. So today, we take a look at three silver stocks.

SGL Carbon, Millennial Lithium, Standard Lithium, Blackrock Silver - Millions of batteries needed!

  • Silver

If current trends in Germany remain valid, the share of electric vehicles in new sales will shake the 25% mark in the next 5 years. In a recent forecast, the Center of Automotive Management (CAM) predicts new car sales of around 480,000 battery-electric cars and plug-in hybrids this year, representing a good 15% share of new registrations of an estimated 3.3 million passenger cars. The assumption is that battery and plug-in hybrid vehicles will each account for around 50%. By 2025, according to the forecast, the e-vehicle share will rise to 27% of new sales, of which about 65% are expected to be pure electric vehicles. The scenario for the battery industry is thus set.
