    In today’s article, I’ll discuss the top 2 holdings of the iShares MSCI Global Silver Miners ETF.

    Benjamin Graham Has Some Words Of Wisdom On Today’s Market

    Probably the best book out there for long term investors is Benjamin Graham’s book, The Intelligent investor. However, the most recent publication is from the 1970s, so I’ll go through the book in a series of articles in order to extract what is still relevant.

    Let’s dig into the supply and demand trends for silver and the main trends surrounding silver in general in order to see whether silver is like gold or if it is perhaps better or worse.

    Introduction

    This past weekend, I discussed Ford from a cyclical sector perspective but there is so much going on in the automotive sector making it a much different environment from what it has been in the last 100 years.

    Today, we’ll discuss what’s changing in the automotive industry and how that will impact producers over the next 10 years. The secular trends I discuss in this video are the shift from internal combustion engines to electric-powered, the shift from active-drive to autonomous, and the shift from user-owned to drive-for-hire services, think of Uber, Lyft, Didi, etc. More →
