HOLD. The current P/E ratio is negative, which has no meaningful value in the assessment of premium or discount valuation, it simply displays that the company has negative earnings. Conducting a second comparison, its price-to-book ratio of 1.86 indicates a discount versus the S&P 500 average of 2.76 and a premium versus the industry average of 1.72. The price-to-sales ratio is well above both the S&P 500 average and the industry average, indicating a premium. Upon assessment of these and other key valuation criteria, SILVER WHEATON CORP seems to be trading at a premium to investment alternatives within the industry.
