Randy Smallwood, President & CEO of Silver Wheaton, sits for a tour de force Think Piece on investing in mining. Randy describes how he invests in silver and gold as by-products of other hard resource mines, the asset race against "Geological Inflation," and how to manage mining investments in parallel with the effects of a strong dollar.

    This is really a go-to stock for silver, with their excellent OCF and asset portfolio. Not to mention, if Pascua Lama and Navidad ever get permitted, that's an instant double.

    Great to see a PM equity company without negative EPS. Like the streaming structure. SLW definitely worth a second look.

    I think all these mining companies have further to fall but I wouldn't forgive myself not having jumped on this train. History will look back as "the" opportunity of a lifetime! But it comes with pain

    Randy, how is your business impacted by the financial distress we are seeing in the major miners with whom you presumably have streaming agreements.?

    global debt is either leveraging or deleveraging. choose one. if u believe we don't have much more capacity to inc leverage, what makes you think commodity prices have much more capacity to inc price?

    Succinct presentation of the precious metals streaming business from the perspective of a seasoned insider. The value proposition exists for those of us daring enough to wear the contrarian's hat.

    Yep, the price has taken a beating. Best time to buy if you believe in the thesis that a big reason gold/silver is off is because they're priced in dollars... which is up 30% or so off the lows.

    Excellent company. Excellent management. But . . . just don't look at their stock performance. OK, down 73% from it's high, 48% in '15 alone, while HUI is down 81% and 44% respectively. Timing?
