Kudos to Chris (TMFSinchiruna)



April 29, 2010 – Comments (17) | RELATED TICKERS: SLV , SLW

Every once in a while you have to give credit where credit is due. I've noticed lately that some other Fools have been dismissing Chris as some type of goldbug. I respect Chris's work because he has insight into the PM industry almost as much as Floridabuilder has insight into the homebuilding industry.  Chris has a understanding of the PM industry that I probably will never have.  That type of expertise is part of what makes the CAPS community so great.

Most people who know Chris knows that SLW is his current favorite. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first, but after some further research I decided to dive in. For the longest time SLW traded roughly $2 below the price of SLV.   I remember him mentioning that he believes at some point SLW would break parity with SLV and eventually surpass SLV in price.  Well this event occured today with SLW now trading over $19 per share while SLV is trading just under $18. Thats pretty spot on.  Great call Chris and thanks for your many contributions.

I second that...when looking for a metal play I picked up a nice piece of SLW 2 weeks ago and have a 12% gain to show for it... : )

Obviously I am not playing for 2 weeks and no one knows what tomorrow brings but the research he presented gave me the idea to look at it...and I am far from a gold bug...

I am also a fan of CEF thanks to his shedding light on these "pure play" metal tickers as I like to call them.

I bought some shares of SLW in August 2008, just to dip my toe in the water of PM. Then the market hit the fan. Like many of us I was confused and ticked off at the financial world. It was in part due to his articles that I have increased my position and have since experienced a 90% return thus far.

His articles are top-notch and well researched.  It would be difficult to say enough good things about the guy.

Give credit where credit is due and in this case it's definitely due. :)

I agree. Chris is by far the most helpful guy on Caps. Always generous with his time and explanations. He truly does try to educate and help his fellow Fools. You can tell how much he obviously cares!

Thanks outoffocus, and especially THANK YOU CHRIS!.

+1 Rec. I've been harder on him than anyone and I disagree with just about everything he says but I can't fault anyone that contributes to a community and honestly tries to help people.

Agree.  He has pointed out the better metal plays in terms of companies and timing, but more importantly these stock will likely weather a down turn better than most of the recent speculative winners.

awww... you guys!  :)

Thanks so much ... I was just going to post a quick note about SLW breaking parity with spot silver, but I see you all noticed. I note too that this is finally a breakout above SLW's all-time high of $19.33 logged on March 14, 2008 just before the big correction. This is a huge technical achivement for the shares. Next target $28, which I believe the shares will be lkely to attain by the time silver gets to $22 or so.

Crazy as it sounds, this stock is still tremendously under-valued. SLW fair value would come in at about 1.6X the prevailing long-term spot price for silver.

Thanks so much for the kind words, everyone ... I'm so glad that my research is helpful to you.

This next move above the prior all-time USD high will carry the mining shares to the kinds of gains that will finally, once and for all, silence a large portion of the under-informed skeptics who think gold and silver have no inherent value outside of their industrial/artisanal demand. 

I will be with you all until we reach the $2,000 mark. 

Fool on, and stay long and strong.
