Macquarie upgrades Silver Wheaton (SLW +1.5%) to Outperform in the wake of lackluster Q1 earnings and a stock slide of more than 30% in three months. The firm notes SLW ended the quarter with $1B in cash and $400M in available credit, putting the miner in position to acquire additional silver streams at accretive levels as alternative forms of financing become harder to obtain.

  • Hey.....why doesn't SLW go corner the market on silver. That would be cool. Let's see....with a billion they could place an order on COMEX for delivery of 35 million ounces and take the silver in the COMEX warehouses. Neat !

  • WMW,
    Then we would find out for sure how much unencumbered silver they had.

  • Yea baby.....

     

    You think guys at places like SLW actually think about things like that? I wonder?

     

    Did you see the un-redacted files that accidently got released in the JPM - Overstock.com case on naked short selling that blatantly admitted that JPM engaged in naked shorting?

  • WMW,
    i hadn't heard about that. Is the CFTC including that in the ongoing silver investigation? No wonder that is taking so long, they had to start over.
