Today's Featured Stock

Silver Wheaton Corp. (SLW) - 19.07, up 0.73 - Breakpoint 18.50

2008 Net to Climb 47%, TTD Targets 24

  SLW, based in Vancouver, is a firm that purchases silver for sale through long-term purchase contracts. Annual revenues: $160 million. SLW breaks out from an 11-week, cup-and-handle base today. The move carries the stock to a new high. SLW is a star performer in the metal sector. (see long-term chart). The stock has soared from 3 in 2005 to 19.

  TTD highlighted SLW as a breakout at our midsession video show on the Web.

  So far today, SLW is trading 4.2 million shares. The stock's average daily volume is 4.4 million shares.

  TTD's clip of the tape shows the stock acting well around midday on Thursday. It ticked up from $19.05 to $19.07 on several block trades.

 Silver Wheaton is a pure, unhedged paper proxy on silver prices with a unique business model. The company purchases silver for sale through long-term purchase contracts from counterparties. Currently, the company has three long-term silver purchase contracts. SLW expects its purchased silver sales to approximate 15 million ounces in 2007.

  SLW is the largest public mining company with 100% of its operating revenue from silver production. It expects 2008 silver sales to be around 15 million ounces, increasing to 25 million ounces in 2010. The company is benefiting from the rising price for silver.

  TTD's long-term chart of SLW shows the stock on a steady climb. The company has received min-tender offers for some of its stock from TRC Capital Management. SLW has advised its shareholders to reject the offers.

  TTD's daily chart of SLW shows the stock "gapping out" from its base. That is bullish showing there is a degree of urgency in the market to buy the stock.

  The stock's accumulation - distribution line (bottom of chart) is in a strong up trend indicating good demand for the stock. The breakout to a new peak by the AD line is good confirmation of strength in the price breakout.

  The TTD momentum indicator (top of chart) is modestly bullish.

  This year, analysts predict SLW's earnings will jump 47% to 54 cents a share from 37 cents a year ago. The stock sells with a price-earnings ratio of  35.

  SLW should show an acceleration in quarterly earnings growth. Net for the first quarter is expected to rise 30% and then in the second quarter 42%. Accelerating quarterly earnings growth can often be a key driver to send a stock higher.

   Net for the first quarter should come in at 13 cents a share, up from 10 cents a year ago. The highest estimate on the Street is at 15 cents a share.

  Strategy Opinion: SLW is a special situation play in the silver sector. TTD is targeting the stock for a move to 24 within the next few months, or sooner. The strong earnings outlook for the next two quarters should provide the power. A protective stop can be placed near 17.50. TTD rates SLW a good intermediate-term play.

  Sponsorship: Good. The company has 220 million shares outstanding. One of the largest buyers recently was Ivy Global Natural Resources Fund which purchased 500,000 shares. It is the largest fund holder now with a 3% stake. Also, 3-star rated Midas Fund picked up 550,000 shares.

  Insider Activity: Not available. Currently, 11 analysts follow the stock, 8 have a buy, up from 5 three months ago.

Commentary on TTD’s Feature Bear Play

Global Partners LP (GLP) - 22.69, down 3.61

Earnings Disappoint, TTD Sees Drop to 18

 . GLP, based in Waltham, Ma.,  is a wholesale distributor of refined petroleum products, operating mainly out of the northeast. Annual revenues: $5.7 billion. GLP's stock falls sharply today after the company reports disappointing earnings for the fourth quarter. The stock of the thinly traded issue is down over 3 points so far today. Volume is running at 103,900 shares, five times its normal daily volume.

  GLP reported earnings for the fourth quarter declined to 72 cents a share from 78 cents a year ago.

The Street was expecting net of 86 cents a share. The 72 cents was below the lowest estimate on the Street of 75 cents a share.

  GLP purchases refined petroleum products from domestic and foreign oil refiners and sells the products in two segments: Wholesale and Commercial.

  Analysts are forecasting net for the first quarter will decline 5% to 95 cents a share from $1 a share a year ago.

  The company said a number of adverse factors are impacting its business in 200. One of those is unfavorable forward pricing in the bulk refined petroleum products supply market. That is increasing costs.

  TTD's chart shows GLP's stock falling off a cliff today. The stock drops sharply on heavy volume. The TTD momentum indicator (top of chart) has been bearish for several weeks. The accumulation - distribution line (bottom of chart) has rolled over. TTD sees GLP as a good trading short with a target to 18 within a few months. The stock has the potential to surprise big on the downside if earnings deteriorate further.
