Today, we’re bringing investors the three best silver stocks to buy now as both silver prices and silver stocks continue to outgain the broader markets in 2016.

Before we get into the three best silver stocks to buy now, here’s why the price of silver is soaring in 2016…

Silver has been one of 2016’s best performing assets. The white metal is up 34.9% year to date. Before a recent pullback, silver prices had risen as much as 50% at their 2016 peak.

And silver stocks are boasting much bigger gains…

So far in 2016, the Global X Silver Miners ETF (NYSE Arca: SIL), a fund that tracks gold mining stocks, has soared more than 151%. That’s roughly 25 times the return of the Dow Jones Industrial Average during the same time.

    It is not often that a secondary stock offering sends a companys shares higher, but we are seeing that very phenomenon Friday morning. Chinese solar PV maker JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) and stock image company Shutterstock Inc. (NASDAQ: SSTK) both priced secondary offerings this morning and shares in both companies have risen sharply.

    But the real news is the near vertical trajectory in share prices for the two stocks. This could be another manifestation of the markets hunger for some momentum plays, as we noted earlier this morning the bump to share prices for both JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd. (NYSE: JKS) and Shutterstock Inc. (NASDAQ: SSTK), both of which held secondary share sales this morning.

stocks and bonds: Federated Investors, Inc.(FII)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Gregg Greenberg]

     Stocks of Federated Investors (FII) fell approximately 9% in 2015, yet Oja expects a big turnaround in 2016, once again due to the prospect of higher rates ahead. 

     

    "The money market fund business, which is unprofitable now, should become more profitable as rates rise because Federated has to reimburse for the servicing fees for these funds," said Oja, who also admires the fund company’s 3.5% dividend yield. 

     

    Oja added that Federated also has a "good core business of equity and fixed-income asset management."
