In this video, Taylor Muckerman lists three issues he believes investors need to watch with Sliver Wheaton. First, while Silver Wheaton has done well in the past, it can't afford to sit back. Watch for continued aggressive business activity. Second, Silver Wheaton has begun paying a dividend. In a capital intensive business such as silver streaming, this may be a liability, but it could also be a successful company sharing its success with investors. Lastly, world monetary policy has driven investors to silver as a safe haven. If interest rates rise, will investors leave silver for other assets?
If you are looking for a company whose success is determined by the metals market, but without involving itself in the risks of physically mining the metals, then Silver Wheaton provides a unique play on the future of silver. SLW chooses to finance the mining of silver; it has grown sales and net income every year since 2008, and also has increased competitive advantages over its limited peer group.
