NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 06/26/12 -- Silver stocks have struggled in 2012 amidst growing concerns of a global economic slowdown. Around 50 percent of silver's demand comes from industrial uses, which has suffered significantly from the euro-zone crisis. The Global X Silver Miners (SIL) has fallen over 18 percent in the last three months, while the iShares Silver Trust ETF (SLV) has fallen over 16 percent over the same period. The Paragon Report examines investing opportunities in the Silver Industry and provides equity research on Coeur d'Alene Mines Corporation (NYSE: CDE) and Pan American Silver Corp. (NASDAQ: PAAS) (TSX: PAA.TO).

Silver prices last Friday hit a new 19-month low as both industrial and investment demand for the precious metal has slowed. Silver for July delivery settled at $26.661 per troy ounce Friday, the lowest since November of 2010. The recent decision by the Federal Reserve to not pursue aggressive stimulus measures has reduced investment demand for safe havens, gold and silver. "In light of silver industrial demand slowing down and investment demand failing to plug the gap, it is the precious metal most vulnerable on the downside," Barclays' Suki Cooper said in a note.
