HONG KONG, Feb. 23 /CNW/ - Today, www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com released its industry report highlighting resource miners
Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc. (NYSE: FCX) and Silver Wheaton
Corp. (NYSE: SLW). Current state of affairs, monetary policy, and
worries of inflation is stimulating investor interest in companies
backed by precious and industrial metals. Investors from around the
world are invited to view fundamental and technical analysis at www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com.
Recently, the U.S. Federal Reserve has enacted quantitative easing
totaling $2.3 trillion, from $1.7 trillion of Treasuries and
mortgage-backed bonds, to its recent $600 billion purchases of
intermediate and long-term Treasuries. The Fed is learning from Japan's
1990 mistake of not offering stimulus for long enough. Lead economists
are anticipating higher inflation as the most significant outcome from
As a result, assets backed by precious metals in with strong
fundamentals are starting to gain momentum.
World Street Fundamentals has highlighted Freeport-McMoRan for its
diverse holdings across industrial metal copper and its exposure to
precious metal gold. Freeport-McMoRan's operations diversify risk
across multiple economic regions spanning North and South America,
Africa and Europe. To read the report on Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold
Inc. (NYSE: FCX), visit www.WorldStreetFundamentals.com.
Silver Wheaton Corp. remains one of the most well-known pure silver
exposure plays available today. With assets and cash-flows derived from
nine separate business segments, most notably Silver Wheaton's 25%
interest in Goldcorp's Penasquito mine in Mexico.
Several recent trends demonstrate the possibility of silver reaching an
inflection point, whereby it begins to trade with greater influence as
a precious metal in addition to its industrial metal influences. This
situation marks a bullish case for Silver, as industrial focused
gold/silver ratios gravitate towards 40, while historic precious metal
derived gold/silver ratio averages at 15.
