Sierra Madre has received DTC Eligibility, rendering its shares more accessible. Read on to see why analysts like this company's stock.

According to a press release from Sierra Madre Gold and Silver Ltd. (SM:TSX.V; SMDRF:OTCQX), the company's stock has received DTC eligibility, which will allow the company's stock to be available for electronic clearing. Sierra Madre reports that this move will allow the company's shares to be more accessible and easier to trade.

The president and CEO of Sierra Madre, Alexander Langer, commented, "DTC eligibility complements our recent listing qualification on the OTCQX Best Market, announcing on July 28, 2023. Obtaining DTC eligibility represents the company's commitment to increasing visibility and accessibility for shareholders in the United States."

Sierra Madre is a junior exploration company that is focused on silver and gold at its La Guitarra, Tepic, and La Tigra properties in Mexico.

Silver Still Strong

While the market seems to have stalled on gold, according to Rick Mills of Ahead of the Herd, things are still going strong for copper and silver on account of their uses in electronics and green energy.

Technical Analyst Clive Maund reviewed the company in July of 2023 and rated the company as a "Strong Speculative Buy."

According to the report, "much of silver's value is derived from its industrial demand. It's estimated around 60% of silver is utilized in industrial applications, like solar and electronics, leaving only 40% for investing."

Additionally, Rick Mills commented that "the transition to an electrified economy doesn't happen without copper and silver, which is why, in my opinion, they are among the most highly investable commodities now and for the foreseeable future."

Multiple Catalysts in Q4

Technical Analyst Clive Maund reviewed the company in July of 2023 and rated the company as a "Strong Speculative Buy."

According to Maund, "The stock has been in a gentle converging downtrend, which is a bullish Falling Wedge. The volume pattern has been bullish throughout."

He went on to say that the "downside looks done, and it has a lot of upside from here, especially as it should have ‘the wind at its back' soon with the sector taking off higher."

Caesar's Report also released a report on Sierra Madre on October 4, 2023, focused on its mine restart efforts at La Guitarra and commented that "the next 12 to 18 months will be extremely important for Sierra Madre Gold and Silver . . . that's the key element for the company as the incoming cash flow . . . should generate enough cash flow to embark on an exploration program while increasing the production rate." 

Sierra Madre has several catalysts to report, according to its investment presentation. The presentation reports that the company's Mine Restart Study is expected to conclude in Q2 of 2024, and its equipment maintenance and acquisition will conclude in Q4 of 2024, along with the mill upgrades. The company reports that it expects commercial production to begin in Q1 of 2025.
