Features to Look for in Silver Stock

  • Earnings-per-share: Before you buy shares of any silver stock, you should consider its earnings-per-share (EPS). This gives you a good indication of the profitability of your investment. In general, a higher EPS means better profitability on each invested share.  
  • P/E ratio: A price-earnings (P/E) ratio is the company’s current stock price divided by its EPS. You can measure the relative profitability from a set of similar silver stocks by comparing its P/E ratio. A high P/E ratio could imply that a stock is overpriced or that the stock is expecting better returns in the future. 
  • Longevity: People from many countries have been trading silver since years of yore. Take note of the total time a company has spent dealing with this precious metal before you put your money behind it.
