Why is Wheaton the better precious metals investment?

Wheaton is the world’s premier precious metals streaming company with the highest-quality portfolio of long-life, low-cost assets. Its business model offers investors leverage to commodity prices and exploration upside but with a much lower risk profile than a traditional mining company. Wheaton delivers amongst the highest cash operating margins in the mining industry, allowing it to pay a competitive dividend and continue to grow through accretive acquisitions. As a result, Wheaton has consistently outperformed gold and silver, as well as other mining investments. Wheaton creates sustainable value through streaming.

The Company currently has streaming agreements for 24 operating mines and 8 development stage projects. Its production profile is driven by a portfolio of low-cost, long-life assets, including a gold stream on Vale’s Salobo mine, and silver streams on Glencore’s Antamina mine and Newmont's Peñasquito mine.
