5 Shining Silver Stocks to Buy Today

When it comes to precious metals, gold captures most of the spotlight. However, silver could be the real money metal in our current market. That’s because silver has the best of both worlds.

On one hand, silver is seen as a precious metal. While not as glittery as its yellow sister, the “poor man’s gold” does tend to hold up its value during times of duress and can be seen as a store of value. That makes it a prime holding and portfolio diversifier — especially in a volatile market like today’s.

Secondly, it’s also an industrial metal. Silver finds its way in all sorts of end products. This includes various electronic components, photovoltaic/solar panels and even medicine. This creates additional demand for the metal.


For the miners of silver, the combination of the metal’s two sides creates plenty of potential — even more so now that silver prices have begun to rise. For investors, the time to add a dose of silver stocks is now.
