I recently stumbled on a snippet of DA Davidson’s research on Roku (ROKU). The research analyst had a price target of $30 before bumping it to $32 after Q1 earnings. The bearish price target is in line with many other bears (i.e. Morgan Stanely, Citi, etc.); however, the method through which the analyst arrived at the $30 price target looks very wrong.
Instead of using simple near-term multiples to justify a low price target (as is the case with the Morgan Stanley analyst), the analyst used a discounted cash flow model. It is the right approach as a DCF model allows an investor to appreciate a company’s long-term potential. However, I can’t seem to reconcile his assumptions with a probable outcome in the real world.

Hot Low Price Stocks To Buy Right Now: Franco-Nevada Corporation(FNV)

Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. (NYSE:WPM) is one of the largest silver and gold streaming companies in the world.

What’s going on at Wheaton, and is it worth buying what clearly looks like the industry laggard?

The more appropriate comparison for Royal Gold would be to streaming and royalty peers Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. (NYSE:WPM) and Franco-Nevada Corporation (NYSE:FNV). The chart below lays out the vital stats for these comparisons.
- [By Reuben Gregg Brewer]
The focus on silver was almost exclusive, with just a single streaming deal devoted to gold. That deal accounted for just 3% of Wheaton’s silver equivalent ounce production. However, in recent years, silver hasn’t performed as well as gold, so the company decided to diversify a little bit more, just like many silver-focused miners. By the end of 2017, gold made up around half of the company’s production, with silver accounting for the rest. Although that was a big change, it still leaves Wheaton with more exposure to silver than peers Royal Gold, Inc. and Franco-Nevada Corporation (NYSE:FNV), which are more heavily focused on gold.
