See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Kirsteen Mackay | Friday, 14th May, 2021 | More on: PAAS Pan American Silver (NASDAQ:PAAS) is a silver and gold miner mainly operating in South America. It also operates in Canada and has a mine in Guatemala currently out of action. As the Biden administration took office in the US, the market was bullish on silver at the turn of the year. That’s because silver is a vital commodity in electronics and the green revolution is a mainstay of the Biden agenda. But since then, the silver price has been fairly volatile. The Pan American Silver share price is down 20% year-to-date. So, does this dip in prices present a buying opportunity for me?FY21 guidance loweredAs Covid-19 continues to hamper normal operations and ventilation constraints present a challenge at one of its mines, Pan American Silver has lowered its FY21 guidance.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…In FY20, the company produced 17.3m ounces of silver and 522,000 ounces of gold.It now expects annual silver production of between 20.5m and 22m ounces, down from between 22.5m and 24m ounces predicted earlier. All-in sustaining costs (AISC) for silver are projected to come in between $14.25 to $15.75 per ounce, which is up from between $12.50 and $14 per ounce projected in January. Meanwhile, its gold production FY21 estimates remain unchanged at 605k to 655k ounces.The company has a $5.6bn market cap, and its dividend yield is just under 1%. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Pan American Silver is the second-largest silver mining company in the world. After finishing 2020 clear of debt and with cash flow strong, Q1 results are disappointing shareholders. But until Covid-19 uncertainty lifts, it’s operating in a volatile segment.Nevertheless, Pan American Silver remains the owner of the world’s largest silver reserve in the ground. Furthermore, Q1 and Q2 are its most costly quarters due to paying its taxes. Therefore, I expect things will pick up later in the year.With no debt and strong cash flow, it intends to invest in projects with a long time horizon and decent long-term returns. It gave its La Colorada Skarn discovery as an example of the kind of exploration projects it seeks.Would I buy shares in Pan American Silver?Silver doesn’t appear to have had the rise in interest that alternative commodities such as copper are enjoying. But its price is now back around the $27 it reached at the beginning of January, after a dip to around $24 in March.Mining shares are risky investments, and with Covid-19 still rampaging in South America, shareholders need to go in with their eyes open. Yet I think the more established heavyweights like PAAS present a more viable opportunity than the juniors.I do think silver is a commodity that’s going to remain in high demand in the coming years and as Pan American Silver has the world’s biggest reserves, I find it a tempting pick to add to my Stocks and Shares ISA. The Pan American Silver share price is down 25% from its 52-week high, so I think this dip could be a good buying opportunity. However, if I was more averse to mining stocks, an alternative way to access the silver market would be the iShares Silver Trust. This is listed on the New York Stock Exchange, with the ticker SLV, and it tends to be very closely correlated to the price of silver.

There’s no denying that some of the best jazz albums of all time were recorded live. That’s the energy that Brooklyn-based ensemble Huntertones is trying to capture on their new record, aptly-titled Live. Due out on September 30th, the band laid down some stellar shows at Natalie’s (Columbus, OH) and Blu Jazz (Akron, OH), and subsequently captured them for the new release.The band is headed up by pianist Theron Brown — who portrayed a young Herbie Hancock in the Miles Ahead film — and trumpeter Jon Lampley — who appears on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert as part of the house band, Jon Batiste and Stay Human. With Dan White (saxophone), Chris Ott (trombone, beatbox), Joshua Hill (guitar), Jeff Bass (bass), Adam DeAscentis (bass), and John Hubbell (drums) all rounding out the band, the energy captured at these two shows is downright electric.Live features six original songs and three genre-bending arrangements, including reworkings of Stephen Foster’s “Camptown Races,” “Kill The Beast” from the Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast, and a medley of Neil Young’s “Heart of Gold” and Dave Matthews’ “Two Step.” We’re delighted to share the first four videos from the new album, with commentary on each one from the band!“Circles”“‘Circles’ is a groove tune that evolves out of a riff played by the saxophone that moves to the guitar. The melody played by the horns is inspired by words from the Robert Munsch book ‘Love You Forever’. The bass line in the end of the tune is the main theme slowed down.” – Dan White“Anvil”“‘Anvil’ has been the opener to a lot of Huntertones shows since we started playing it a year ago. The tune is based off of three melodic ideas and the horns carry a lot of the energy of the tune. Instead of just one soloist, the whole group improvises before landing together and featuring bassist Jeff Bass. It is a groove tune that pulls from many musical styles. As the group has evolved, we’ve embraced more group improvising. Each show is different and Huntertones’ Live captures the great energy between the musicians and the audience.” – Dan White“Camptown Races”“‘Camptown Races’ is a reimagination of the well known song written by Stephen Foster. Combining elements of hip hop, gospel, and classical music, this arrangement showcases Huntertones skill as well as soul. After a take on the melody by Lampley’s trumpet in a minor key, the band shifts into a classical style fugue setting up for a climactic trombone solo from Ott. Once the tune has reached its final peak the opening groove re-enters, this time to let keyboardist Theron Brown stretch out on a soulful feature that builds once more to an energetic finish.” – Chris Ott“Hip Mr. Hampton”“‘Hip Mr. Hampton’ shows off Huntertones unique trio format of saxophone, sousaphone and beatboxing. The song was originally inspired by a lick played by trombonist Slide Hampton, which can be heard in multiple keys and tempos throughout the arrangement. Weaving through time signatures and different styles, White, Lampley and Ott fuse their improvisations to create a one of a kind musical experience fueled by the energy of the crowd.” – Chris OttIn support of the national release of Live, Huntertones will be touring throughout the remainder of the year.
