Its Recent Pullback Makes Pan American Silver Corp. (Nasdaq: PAAS) a Bargain

Pan American Silver Corp. (Nasdaq: PAAS) is a silver mining company that has experienced a significant pullback in price since hitting its high in March. That means patient investors have a nice chance to enter at lower prices while the market calms down.
