HONG KONG, Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ - 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 this policy.
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.
