NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/30/11 -- With the price of Silver remaining high, analysts and investors are beginning to question the underperformance of Mining and Streaming stocks. Paul Simon, chief investment officer of Tactical Allocation Group, argues that "investors in miners still have to account for business risk and global uncertainty." Simon adds that "part of the problem miners face is they're located in countries with governments in bad fiscal positions or uncertain political climates."

Both the precious metals, gold and silver, kicked off the week on a positive note, on brisk buying by stockists and jewellers for the ongoing marriage season amid a firming global trend. According to recent reports from Bloomberg, silver could be poised to benefit from an improving European economy more than other precious metals as it also serves a purpose as an industrial metal.
Heading into the New Year, silver could be poised to see an uptick. "Conditions in 2012 are likely to remain highly supportive of further growth in investment demand, underpinning additional price gains," Philip Klapwijk, Global Head of Metal Analytics for the group, told an annual meeting of The Silver Institute.
