"I don't look at silver as a precious metal. I look at silver as a strategic metal."
Believe it or not, silver is just as essential to tech as graphene.
Yes, silver – that seemingly everyday metal that we find in our wedding bands and "nice" forks.
Silver is so vital in consumer electronics, solar power, and even healthcare now that it has become one of those "Miracle Materials" that are literally changing our lives. In fact, the mining chief executive officer I just talked with compared the metal to hot-topic materials like tungsten and graphene.
It's been a tough couple of years for his industry. But Keith Neumeyer, one of the top CEOs in the silver industry, tells me that he sees good times ahead – thanks to our friend the law of supply and demand.
So today, I'm sharing with you not only Neumeyer's observations about silver and technology, but also his bullish predictions about this commodity's near-term price.
And I'm going to show you how to score gains of 70% or more by investing in silver with an intriguing play…
Silver on My Mind
As we've talked about so often here, we simply cannot ascend to the next level of technology without the strategic materials that make mobile devices, supercomputers, and cutting-edge bioscience possible. Having followed metals and minerals for nearly 40 years, I can tell you that these are essential ingredients in the technology investment opportunities I bring to you.
I come by my interest in silver thanks to my family. I grew up in a military household, where, thanks to my father's high-tech job, I learned about the use of rare earths and exotic materials, not to mention gold and silver, in defense electronics.
This was the middle 1970s, and the U.S. economy was a basket case. So, after graduating college, as a hedge, I began investing in silver on a regular basis.
It's become one of my lifelong passions along with Silicon Valley stocks. And so I keep abreast of trends affecting silver as both an investment and a vital tech metal.
Clearly, Neumeyer shares my enthusiasm for silver – and for tech-related metals in general.
