TheStreet Ratings rates Silver Wheaton Corporation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, expanding profit margins and good cash flow from operations. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, Great Basin Gold ( GBG), down 45.5%, Minco Gold Corporation ( MGH), down 8.5%, Ossen Innovation ( OSN), down 8.1%, and Gold Standard Ventures ( GSV), down 6.9%, were all laggards within the metals & mining industry with Vale ( VALE) being today's metals & mining industry laggard.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the metals & mining industry could consider SPDR S&P Metals & Mining ETF ( XME) while those bearish on the metals & mining industry could consider PowerShares DB Base Metals Sht ETN ( BOS).
