Apogee Silver - Near Term Double
I just analyzed Apogee silver. Their market cap has recently crashed, and their fully diluted market cap is down to $26 million. Yet they begin silver production in Q4 2013 at 2 million oz, with cash flow estimated to be almost double their current market cap. I don't see any debt on their balance sheet. If they trade at 2x cash flow, that is $80 million / $26 million = 200% return. Thus, there is an excellent chance for a short term 2 bagger. What’s the catch? Why is it so cheap? The...  more

Coeur d'Alene Mining Makes Bid for Orko Silver
News release link: http://www.orkosilver.com/s/NewsReleases.asp?ReportID=570896&_Type=News-Releases&_Title=Orko-Announces-Superior-Proposal My Take: In December 2012, First Majestic made a friendly offer to purchase Orko Silver for about $2.25 per share. Then, today on February 13th (an unlucky day for First Majestic), Coeur d’Alene made a $2.70 offer. This was a 25% premium over First Majestic’s offer.
