What: Shares of Coeur d'Alene Mines
So what: Based on a forecast silver price of $50/oz in 2012, Deutsche Bank also offered a price target of $54 on Coeur d'Alene, representing a whopping 120% worth of upside to yesterday's close. With a prediction as bullish as that, it's no surprise that other silver plays, like Silvercorp
Now what: I'd wait for Coeur d'Alene to calm down before jumping in. With today's double-digit surge, the shares are up a massive 250% over the past two years and have returned more than 80% in the past six months alone. Growing global industrial demand for silver could certainly propel Coeur d'Alene higher, but given its large debt load, Fools might want to focus on the stock's downside a little more than Mr. Market seems to be.
