I loaded up my stock market analysis software last night to take a look at the best performing stocks and sectors of the year. The top performing stock this year in the S&P 500 is AMD and one of the best sectors inside the Nasdaq has been the semiconductor stocks, but you may already know that as they talk about them every night on CNBC.
What you may not know is that the silver stocks have also been massive leaders this year.
Silver miner CDE is up 57.72% this year while PAAS is up 35.41% and WPM is up 40.81%.
Look for these stocks to just go up even more next year as this is a red hot sector now. But the right small cap stocks inside this sector go up more than you can even imagine when they run.
This is why I like Aftermath Silver so much. Take a look at its chart now.
FLMZF has had big surges and then quick pullbacks. The stock went from 16 cents in November to over 30 cents just the other day. That’s a massive gain and when such a move happens often a stock will pause and go sideways. That creates a new entry point for those that take advantage of it like some did in October and in August.
But the big thing you need to realize is that silver stocks are red hot this year and no one is talking about them. It isn’t like NVDA two years ago or Bitcoin in 2017 or drop stocks in 2018. When everyone talks about the red hot sector than you have to wonder if the trend can continue as who is left to buy? But when something is strong and no one talks about it then you know it will only continue. That’s the difference between being late in the game and early in at the start.
I talked a bit about silver and about some sectors that actually are doing bad this year with Jim Goddard of howestreet.com in an interview you can hear here:
Disclosure: Mike Swanson owns WPM, PAAS, and has a position in Aftermath Silver. Because it is a small cap stock with less than $100 million in market he is placing himself on a voluntary 30-day trading restriction period from the date of this post in which he will not buy or sell shares of it.
