Silver Wheaton Corp. vs Goldcorp Inc: Which Is the Best Investment?

Fri, 23 Jan 2015 17:26:15 GMT

Investment summary

Silver Wheaton’s net earnings in both Q414 and FY14 were closely in line with our expectations, at US$52.0m (vs US$52.1m forecast) and US$268.0m (vs US$268.0m, respectively) after record full-year silver equivalent oz sales. In simple terms, a slightly better performance (cf expectations) by its silver producing interests in Q4 offset a slightly worse one at its gold producing interests. In addition, earnings benefited from a decline in both the cost of sales and depletion compared with Q3.

Analyst Interview - Silver Wheaton

Industry outlook

Taking into account likely future streaming agreements, we conservatively forecast a share price of US$36.92 (C$44.19) in FY19, thereby offering investors a 21.1% IRR in US$ terms over four years. In the meantime, SLW trades on multiples that are consistently cheaper than its royalty ‘peers’ and more akin to (and sometimes cheaper than) its operating contemporaries, despite being associated with materially less risk.
