The Greatest Opportunity in 30 Years

I caught myself daydreaming last week…

It was October 27, 2008, and Silver Wheaton (NYSE: SLW) just hit $3 per share. I buy 10,000 shares — more than I’ve ever devoted to any one stock.” 
I sell half when it hits $33 per share and pocket $150,000 after a 1,000% gain. I pay off the mortgage, and my wife quits work — and I still have 5,000 shares…

Not a bad daydream, eh?

I don’t know how many investors actually had the intestinal fortitude to plunk down a big lump of cash on a stock at that time — but Silver Wheaton did indeed offer that 1,000% return, and more.
