Fortuna Silver Mines Inc (NYSE:FSM) shares are breaking out of a multi-week pullback to resume the uptrend that started in November and is trading at levels that have been in play, more or less, since 2016.
The economy is running well past its “speed limit” now, with more job openings than unemployed persons and price pressures increasing. That should set the stage for a nice rally in precious metals in the months to come.
The company will next report results on Aug. 8 after the close. Analysts are looking for earnings of eight cents per share on revenues of $65.5 million. When the company last reported on May 9, earnings of nine cents per share matched estimates on an 8.6% rise in revenues.

Its Iodine division offers derivatives that are used in medical and industrial applications, as well as in antiseptics, disinfectants and polarizing films for LCDs.
Its Lithium division provides lithium carbonates for batteries, heat-resistant glass, air conditioning chemicals and more. With electric and hybrid vehicle demand growing, consistent lithium supplies are crucial.

Its Potassium division focuses on the sales of two potassium fertilizers. Trade issues have discounted the stock and make it a bargain long-term investment now.

Publicly traded private equity firm Apollo Investment Corporation (NASDAQ:AINV) has seen shares stagnate since the beginning of 2017 as its industry group has lagged both the rise in the broad market and the impressive rise in financial stocks in general during this time.
The reason is complicated but tied to worries over higher deal multiples (potential buyouts are expensive) and rising debt costs needed to fund leveraged deals. But tax changes and a recent move for public-P/E firms to change into C-corps is driving buying interest.
The company will next report results on Aug. 2 before the bell. Analysts are looking for earnings of 15 cents per share on revenues of $62.4 million. When the company last reported on May 18, earnings of 15 cents per share missed estimates by a penny on a 7.2% decline in revenues.
