"It's good to be back making acquisitions," Silver Wheaton's (SLW +2.1%) Randy Smallwood says ahead of Q2 earnings and after its $750M deal to purchase gold and silver from HudBay mines. Deals had been too expensive with silver prices above $40/oz., but "we do think silver is near a bottom." As far as most analysts are concerned, the deal was worth the wait.

  • I like SLW- have made money in the past and plan on doing it now. It's not just paper like SLV its base on real assets in the ground.
