Other than a short uptick in the first week of January, silver stocks have been rather stagnant in terms of a large movement. This is due to the price of silver staying above the $25 price point for an extended period of time, but not moving significantly lower either. On February 1st, the unexpected happened.

The Redditors claim that these articles are false and the focus has not shifted off of GME stock. Users said things such as, “Complete lies. Stay away from silver right now” and “Don’t listen to them, this is them trying to take focus away from GME”. No matter which side is correct here, one thing is undeniable and that is the increase in price of silver and silver stocks on February 1st.
