••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

MAG Silver Corp is an exploration stage company. The Company is engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of mineral properties, mainly silver deposits in Mexico.

MAG Silver Corp was originally incorporated under the Company Act of British Columbia on April 21, 1999 under the name '583882 B.C. Ltd.'. On June 28, 1999, in anticipation of becoming a capital pool company, the Company changed its name to 'Mega Capital Investments Inc.' On April 22, 2003, it changed its name to 'MAG Silver Corp.' to reflect its new business upon the completion of its Qualifying Transaction. The Company is in the mineral acquisition, exploration and development business. It is in the exploration stage and there is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit exists on any of its properties. The Company's property interests are located in Mexico. The mineral exploration industry is intensely competitive and the Company competes in all aspects of its operations with a substantial number of large established mining companies with substantial capabilities and greater financial and technical resources than it. The Company's operations are subject to environmental regulations promulgated by government agencies from time to time.

Guru Investment Theses on MAG Silver Corp

Gabelli Funds Comments on MAG Silver - Nov 17, 2016

MAG Silver (MAG) (1.6%) (MVG – $15.07 | $19.77 CAD – Toronto Stock Exchange) owns 44% of one of the highest quality silver deposits in the world. The Juanicipio project in Zacatecas, Mexico is adjacent to Fresnillo plc’s (7.1%), namesake silver mine. Having Fresnillo as the 56% majority partner and operator of the mine limits development risk for the asset, and should allow for the project to be financed with little trouble. Once operational, Juanicipio should be highly cash flow positive. A new discovery on the Juanicipio property has the potential to either extend the mine’s life or increase production at the project meaningfully.
