Question: Why Silver?

Answer:

Silver is the most undervalued commodity on earth in our view. The natural ratio of gold to silver is about 16 to 1. In other words for every ounce of gold that is mined, approximately 16 ounces of silver have been extracted. This would suggest a price that might be near this same ratio. $300 gold might suggest $25 silver. This of course is NOT the case, the current ratio is over 60 to 1. This implies silver is undervalued even compared to gold!
