maurizion, he better be quiet talking about next year.  In my opinion this is the best approach that he can take now until  the last quarter of this year.  Now is not the time to play hero.  He can't control silver but he can control the direction of the company. With current prices of silver, it's an easy answer, but you must look at both sides of the coin.  Answers you can find in silver technical. It is very well presented on Kitco charts showing silver as low as $10.00 and high at $180.00.  Pick the numbers:).
