Dig Media's Resource Investing News Network experienced an exciting year of growth and opportunity in 2010; and in keeping with our commitment to further growth in 2011, January 11th we introduced a new tool for our Resource Investing News readers: The Gold Stock Index on Gold Investing News. This week, we're launching the Silver Stock Index on Silver Investing News. Our main goal is to educate investors about the latest trends and news impacting the market and the Silver Stock Index supports that goal. It features a compilation of news-making small cap silver companies, and allows users to track how specific companies are performing in comparison to the Index. The Silver Stock Index is a market capitalization weighted index of companies that are exploring for or producing silver as their primary business focus. The companies featured are frequently reported on by Silver Investing News, and are publicly traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange, TSX Venture exchange, and Australian Stock Exchange. Each has a market capitalization of less than $2 Billion. The Silver Stock Index is designed to display market trends, as well as offer users the ability to compare selected market leaders against the market and each other. For example, a look at Medusa Mining Ltd. (ASX: MML) on the Silver Stock Index shows the impressive gains the stock made on January 9 to the 12; gains which the stock continues to hold, outperforming the index. Royal Resources Ltd. (ASX: ROY) has shown similar strength in comparison to the rest of the index; whereas Sabina Gold & Silver's (TSE: SBB) share price has followed the rest of the Index rather consistently over the last month, tracking lower this week. We'll be adding silver companies to the Index based on how often they are covered on Silver Investing News. Each month, the list will be readjusted to ensure that the relevant silver companies are included. We work closely with leading silver companies to detail their key projects and personnel in educational profiles that are linked to the company names listed in the Index.
We will continue to refine the Index into a clear and concise system that allows investors to educate themselves on the small cap gold market. The Index will collect data and show market trends giving users a more comprehensive view of what is happening in the market.Make sure to visit the Silver Stock Index and find out how your favorite small cap companies compare! Please feel free to share your comments about the Silver Stock Index and the Gold Stock Index with us as over the coming months we will be launching more commodity indices on other Resource Investing News Network sites.
