Best Performing Silver Stocks of 2020

Updated Feb 14, 2020
Silver has been accompanying gold as a substitute of currency since the ancient times. In fact, for a good length of period, silver prices and returns generated over a period of time have been better than that of gold. Silver continues to rank high in the list of precious metals which are used as a store of monetary value. In cases of nations where traditional currency issued by the country's central bank is undergoing massive undervaluation, gold and silver are the traditional assets which people tend to put their investments in. Silver is looked upon as a hedge against the present world inflation.
Companies operating in the silver business include those which are exploring, developing and mining the shiny metal from earth, or those which process and purify it for use in the required fields, or those which manufacture finished items like jewellery, decorative items and others using the silver metal.

The list is prepared based on the percentage returns generated by the individual silver stocks between the end of the previous and Feb 14, 2020, and the top 10 return generating silver stocks are listed below.
