Silver miners versus silver in the first six months of 2015

The close later this afternoon marks the end of the first half of 2015 and as I rootled around this morning checking on things, it came to pass that I noticed how silver the metal hasn't done as badly as its recent negative publicity might suggest.

BUT...the mining companies producing silver suck. Here's a reasonably representative bunch of them and their NYSE tickers and as you can see, they're all down, the average fail is around at least 10% on the year to date. Some are a lot lower.
