Investing in Precious Metal Silver Versus Investing in Facebook Stock: Which is a Better Investment?
The time to invest in silver is now. Stephen M Smith of Smith McKenna, LLC believes that the spot price of silver is going much higher over the next few years. Facebook recently launched their IPO and its stock price and investor frenzy followed, but does precious metal investing make more sense?
HOLLYWOOD, Fla., May 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Precious metal silver is emerging as the leader in early 2012, posting gains that outperformed all other precious metals in Q1. As the global economy continues to rebound, the only probable place for silver to go is on the upward. If you look at this, along with silver nearly doubling in value since 2010, analyst's poor predictions and constant links to volatility are quite far off.
The key to investing is longevity, and diversity. Facebook's IPO received a massive amount of attention last week because of their popularity around the world, and how Mark Zuckerberg has created a social network behemoth; but does it make sense to invest in Facebook, which is such a young company? Populations across the globe saw how fast Facebook came in and swallowed up all of MySpace's users; virtually overnight. Analysts and bloggers alike are already claiming that Facebook (worth roughly $100Billion) may not be around as long as you might think, which wouldn't sit well with its investors. The reasons are tied to future profits, and the fast changing interests of the internet to name a couple.
Precious metal silver however has continued on a relatively long upward trend for many years offering the type of long term investment that would make more sense, than gambling on a Facebook investment. Stephen M Smith, managing member of Smith McKenna, LLC knows that fear and lack of understanding of investing terms and options often scare people from making the first move.
Smith has dedicated his life to the precious metals industry and is now hoping to break down that barrier so that people can enter the precious metal investment arena well informed. So much so that he is offering a FREE investing book to a limited number of people who sign up for a free consultation and want to learn more. http://www.smithmckenna.com/free-book/
Pure silver is continuing to be in short supply as global mining production for 2011 posted a low 1.4% increase according to the World Silver Survey by GFMS. The outlook for 2012 appears to be very similar, however with demand heating up; low supply will likely mean a surge in spot silver prices which is what investors are eagerly waiting for. Silver responds very similarly to industrial metals, with ties to macroeconomic trends like supply and demand. With global manufacturing rebounding, silver could be heavily demanded for solar panel production and more.
It's not some magic formula; becoming wealthy and successful involves diversity and having the correct knowledge. Precious metals as an investment vehicle should be considered in anybody's investment portfolio. They could potentially outperform IRA's and 401K's.
