Investment summary

WPM's Q117 net earnings were within 0.4% of our prior expectations. Gold sales once again exceeded silver sales and shareholders subsequently voted to change the name of the company from Silver Wheaton to Wheaton Precious Metals, which came into effect on 16 May. Assuming no material purchases of additional streams (which is unlikely), we forecast a value per share for WPM of US$37.52, or C$51.32, in FY20 (at average precious metal prices of US$23.98/oz Ag and US$1,362/oz Au).

Industry outlook

In relative terms, WPM’s shares are trading on near-term financial measures that are cheaper than those of its royalty/streaming ‘peers’ in c 92% of instances considered, and the miners themselves in c 44%, despite being associated with materially less risk. Upside from existing streams includes the potential expansion of Salobo and the development of Pascu-Lama, among others. Q217 results are scheduled for release after the market close in Toronto on 10 August.
