Related SOCL Mobile Advertising's Next Barrier: Texts, iMessages, WhatsApp And More Bears Miss Opportunity With Social Media ETF

While it seems like only yesterday that Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB) was going public and the concept of investing in social media stocks via exchange-traded funds was far flung, the reality is the Global X Social Media Index ETF (NASDAQ: SOCL) is fast approaching its fifth anniversary.

SOCL has seen a lot in its almost five years on the market. The ETF was one of the first to hold shares of Facebook at significant, enduring that now story stock's rocky start.

    The weak silver sentiment has raised PAAS’ dividend yield to 2.8% which we feel is well supported by PAAS’ strong balance sheet and its healthy liquidity position of $566mn. The company is also advancing two growth projects, expected to add 5moz of silver and 128koz of gold pa to its production from 2018. Its costs are also improving, helped by devalued operating currencies and productivity improvements.
