Price of SIlver in 2014

Despite lower silver prices, Vancouver's Pan American Silver Corp. (Nasdaq: PAAS) reported strong earnings yesterday (Thursday) that sent its shares soaring 6.28% over the day - and up to an 8.35% gain through Friday.

Thursday's earnings posted a net loss of $293.1 million, or $1.94 per share, during Q4 2013.
