Silver Still a Good Buy

iShares Silver Trust (NYSE: SLV ) - The objective of this exchange-traded fund (ETF) is to reflect the price of silver owned by the trust less the trust's expenses and liabilities. This investment is intended to be a simple, cost-effective substitute to owning physical silver bullion.

I first recommended SLV on Nov. 25, 2009, at $18.50. And on Nov. 8, 2010, at $16.19, the Trade of the Day said, "The trust has had straight-line appreciation since September 2010, so buyers should use caution at current levels. But if silver bullion continues to rise and inflation rears its head, SLV could see much higher prices.

"Buying a half position now and a full position later might prove to be a wise investment."

As long as the U.S. dollar falls and precious metals advance, SLV will likely move ahead. Continue to buy and hold SLV.
