Eric Sprott : Silver to outshine gold over the coming years

In a recent interview with BNN canada Eric Sprott Chairman, CEO & Portfolio Manager of Toronto based Sprott Asset Management said : “Silver will be the investment of the decade.” “I think that silver could easily get to $50 this year,”
“If the price of silver continues to go up, silver stocks are going to perform even better,” “China’s net imports of silver were 112 million ounces last year. In 2005, they were net exporters of 100 million ounces,” he says.
“That’s a 200 million ounce shift in an 800 million ounce annual market that seldom ever grows because production hardly ever goes up. So where’s it all going to come from? We don’t know.”“Silver is the poor man’s gold. Gold has had a great run for the past 11 years. But I absolutely believe that silver will outperform gold this year. Currently, there’s more investment dollars going into silver than into gold.”
“It’s the easiest call of all time.”
“Silver as a currency always traded in a ratio of around 16 to 1 compared to gold, when it was a currency in the U.S. and the U.K. The current ratio is 48 to 1. If we go back to a 16 to 1 ratio, the implied price for silver would be $85.62 (per ounce).” he adds.“On that basis, if gold goes to $1,600, then that would value silver at $100. And we certainly think that gold is going to $1,600. In fact, I’m willing to bet that this ratio will overshoot on the downside. It might even get to 10 to one.” Eric Sprott explains that the only reason why the silver is still trading at a ratio of 48 to one to gold is because of the market manipulation by some big banks that are naked shorting silver

MAKE SURE YOU GET PHYSICAL SILVER IN YOUR OWN POSSESSION. Don't Buy SLV, or Futures or Pooled Accounts or any other BS paper silver product .Remember anything on paper is worth the paper it is written on. Go Long Stay long the bull market have even started yet
