A post on r/WallStreetBets calls for traders on the social media platform to use their funds to buy up shares of silver stocks. It argues that silver is undervalued and that the group can boost its price up to match material values by purchasing shares.

This post specifically mentions First Majestic Silver as a prime target for this plan. It looks like the Redditors making use of the WSB subreddit are on board as shares of AG stock are rising rapidly this morning.

WSB traders are also taking aim at other silver stocks as well this morning. Ishares Silver Trust (NYSEARCA:SLV) is also called out as a strong potential investment opportunity in that same Reddit post mentioned above.

PLenty of other silver stocks are also on the rise alongside these two. That includes MAG Silver (NYSEAMERICAN:MAG), Wheaton Precious Metals (NYSE:WPM), Hecla Mining (NYSE:HL), Endeavour Silver (NYSE:EXK), Fortuna Silver Mines (NYSE:FSM), and Pan American Silver (NASDAQ:PAAS).
