For those new round here, we run nine small silver companies against the silver ETF (SLV) and see how they get on compared to each other over the course a calendar year. So far in 2011, Great Panther (GPR.to) is leading the pack, followed by Impact Silver (IPT.v in a clear second place. Then come a bunch of securities including our benchmark SLV and after all those, the laggards.
Oh looky look, ECU Silver (ECU.to) is the worst performing of the lot! Hoodathunkit? Not Mexico Scamster and Paid Shiller Mike, that's for sure. How the devil can a silver producer be down 9% in a year when the metal is simply flying? The answer is, of course, that BS scams are found out eventually. DYODD.
