VSUL remains a trending focus. CHTL investment discussion. Silver rebuilding..hmm

Focus:
 
General fence sitting as the mkts go into a tailspin....Looks like intermediate term plateauing phase may set in......Wierd with Egypt unrest....

Silver Wheaton is a silver royalty trust. What this means is that the company has signed long-term contracts with miners to buy silver (and a small amount of gold) from them at fixed prices, but they themselves do not mine any silver.
