Silver Wheaton: More Reasons To Buy The Drop

August 28, 2015 at 09:24AM

  • SLW has used this leading position to its advantage by capturing a majority of the industry’s net earnings and cash flow, while it has reduced its debt-equity ratio as well.
  • SLW’s production could increase as much as 80% by 2019, but its cost will be constant as 85% of its production comes from assets in the lowest quartile.

  • Silver demand could pick up as it is in oversold territory due to the uncertainty in the global equity market, which will eventually lead to better pricing and benefit PAAS.

August 26, 2015 at 12:32PM

  • Due to low prices of silver and gold, Hochschild reported poor results in 1H 2015.
  • The main reasons standing behind it are relatively high costs of production and problems reported by Pallancata (one of the company’s four operating mines).
