Silver Stocks Look to Rebound as Silver Prices Benefiting From Increased Demand

Five Star Equities Provides Stock Research on Silver Wheaton and Silvercorp Metals

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 23, 2012) - After a strong start to the year, silver stocks have faltered in recent months as prices for the metal have struggled to gain any upwards momentum. The Global X Silver Miners ETF (SIL) has fallen over 15 percent in the last three months, while the iShares Silver Trust ETF (SLV) 14 percent over the same period. "The slide in silver prices mirrors the stubbornly sluggish global economy, and the strength of the U.S. dollar," said Keith Newcomb, portfolio manager at Full Life Financial LLC. Five Star Equities examines the outlook for companies in the Silver Industry and provides equity research on Silver Wheaton Corp. (NYSE: SLW) (TSX: SLW) and Silvercorp Metals Inc. (NYSE: SVM) (TSX: SVM).

Silver has recently been benefitting from increased demand according to Commerzbank. In a recent note, the bank stated that holdings in silver exchange-traded funds, 575.1 million troy ounces, were at their highest levels since May of last year. Silver futures on Friday settled at $27.217 a troy ounce. "Investors clearly view silver's current price level of $27 per troy ounce as an attractive opportunity to buy, which means higher silver prices can be expected," the bank said.
