Silver Wheaton's (SLW -5.7%) 20% Y/Y increase in earnings and 26% gain in revenues during its Q1 isn't enough to satisfy investors, as both readings came in below expectations. CEO Randy Smallwood voices concern that "challenging global financial markets have made access to traditional forms of capital, such as debt and equity, much more difficult."

    Maybe I'm misreading the summary but given that they provide that capital, surely that's a good thing for them and not a negative like it comes across to me?


    I'm just waiting for silver prices to go up and that's when things will look much better for them, and they're not even looking bad now!

    That's what I was thinking re. SLW.... I would think the current financing situation for the miners would be very good for SLW going forward. I look forward to them adding new lucrative royalty streams....

    Very odd that SA tries to spin Smallwood's statement as negative, when in fact he was stating it was a positive and strength of SLW. The full quote is in the press release that you can even find on SA, no less.

    Revenue and profits up big time with more rapid growth to come, and the dividend has tripled, but the stock is down from the mid thirties a year ago. Go figure.
