Can Silver Wheaton Fund Your Retirement?

The recent sell-off in precious metals has boosted the dividend yield on various silver companies, including Silver Wheaton (NYSE: SLW  ) . Current conditions give investors the chance to own this best-in-class silver streaming company with both a strong income element and plenty of upside. Unlike miners Pan American Silver (NASDAQ: PAAS  ) and Silvercorp Metals (NASDAQOTH: SVMLF  ) , which offer higher dividend yields, Silver Wheaton has important advantages.

In the video below, contributor Doug Ehrman discusses the relative appeal of Silver Wheaton against other silver miners, the source of that advantage, and why the stock may be right for your long-term retirement portfolio.

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.

    SLW needs more PR work. Not enough people know about this gem of a finance company streamer. With the addition of more gold contracts, as well as silver, this company actually HAS something of redeemable value backing itself, other than paper, and we are all just waiting on that paper game to go up in smoke.
