Silver Wheaton: What to Focus On

In the following video, Fool contributor Dan Caplinger explains the basics of the silver streaming business model that Silver Wheaton  (TSX:SLW) uses to contract with partner mining companies.

Dan highlights a new agreement with Brazil’s Vale as an example of a partner streaming agreement that focuses on gold. Can Silver Wheaton continue to profit from future agreements with partners such as Barrick Gold (TSX:ABX), Primaro Mining, and Hudbay Minerals (TSX:HBM)?

In addition, the price of silver and its impact on Silver Wheaton’s dividend is also discussed.  The dividend is currently based on 20% of cash flow.
