3 TSX Silver Stocks to Buy Today

0 0

As of April 2022, the spot price of silver is up around 5.34% year to date, capping off an impressive first quarter for the precious metal. This comes as both stocks and bonds fall due to a combination of high inflation and rising interest rates.

During the first month of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the price of silver climbed steadily, as investors sought a safe haven and reliable store of value from the ongoing geopolitical uncertainty, global market volatility, economic sanctions, and devaluation of the Russian ruble.

With this in mind, let’s zero in on a few specific Canadian silver stocks potentially worth investing in.

Endeavour Silver

Endeavour Silver (TSX:EDR)(NYSE:EXK) currently operates in Mexico and Chile, with a focus on the acquisition, exploration, development, extraction, processing, refining, and reclamation of mineral properties. Their current assets include two producing silver-gold mines and five exploration & development projects. Year to date, the stock is up over 30%, with silver production up 25% in Q1 2022 for a total of 1,314955 ounces mined.

In January, Endeavour Silver also announced an acquisition of one of the world’s largest undeveloped silver projects in Mexico, called the Pitarrilla project. The company also recently completed a equity offering of 9,292,150 common shares for total proceeds of $46 million, leaving it with good cash on the balance sheet heading into Q2 2022.

Fortuna Silver Mines

Fortuna Silver Mines (TSX:FVI)(NYSE:FSM) owns a series of mines in Argentina, Burkina Faso, Mexico, Peru, and the Ivory Coast, engaging in the acquisition, exploration, and mining of not only silver but also gold, lead, and zinc. Year to date, the stock is up 11%, with strong year-over-year quarterly revenue growth of 92.20% in Q1 2022, and a strongly improved trailing 12-month operating margin of 24.99%.

For Q1 2022, Fortuna Silver Mines reported silver production of 1,670,124 ounces, which was a 13% decrease versus Q1 2021.

The company also provided guidance for the remainder of 2022, stating it expected to produce between 6.2 to 6.9 million ounces of silver before fiscal year end.

For 2021, First Majestic Silver recorded record annual revenues of $584 million for a 61% increase from 2020, owing to the increase in silver spot prices and their acquisition of the Jeritt Canyon mine.
