What is the most undervalued asset of 2018?

The definition of value investing, is finding assets in the market that are undervalued, with great potential for growth. We’re sharing the highlights from a special report: Six Secrets of Silver Investing Guide that outlines the market conditions for why silver is poised to skyrocket in the coming years.

1. Silver Remains One of the Few Genuine Stores of Value

What does it mean to be a genuine store of value? In simple terms, a store of value is a form of currency that has a long-standing, historical record of reflecting inherent value to anyone, anywhere in the world.

2. Silver Often Outperforms Gold During Precious Metals Bull Markets

Silver is an attractive, naturally occurring wealth asset is its propensity to outshine gold when precious metals bull markets are in play. From January 1970 to January 1980, gold was up roughly 1,500 percent. Very nice, however during the same period, silver rose more than 2,100 percent.

3. The World's Supply of Silver is Falling

A compelling reason for moving into silver at this time is its shrinking supply. The Silver Institute, in its World Silver Survey 2017, reports the world's physical silver supply has run a deficit for four years. There are good reasons to believe that deficit will persist. It’s a classic supply-and-demand formula that applies here.

4. Demand for Silver is Growing Worldwide

Industrial demand for silver is expected to increase in the next several years. For example, silver's applications are particularly prominent in multiple aspects of the manufacturing of automobiles, appliances, computers and cell phones. In fact, industrial reliance on silver accounts for roughly 50 percent of the overall demand for the metal, with the electronics industry leading the pack.

5. Silver Defies Rising Economic Uncertainty in the U.S.

It's worth noting how silver performed during the Great Recession. From October 2008 to April 2011, when the economy was stagnating, and the stock market was struggling, the Dow Jones Industrial Average returned roughly 37 percent. But how did silver do? Its price appreciated nearly 400 percent.

6. In Spite of Attractive Fundamentals, Silver is Very Cheap

Gold is around $1,300 per ounce and reached its all-time high of a little over $1,900 per ounce back in 2011. Silver, which hovered around the $50-per-ounce mark as recently as 2011, is just $17 per ounce right now. So, right now, Silver appears to be a compelling buy.
