Company news

Investment summary

FY17 results were characterised by a record level of gold sales and dividend payouts. Overall, both underlying financial results and production were ahead of our expectations and previous guidance. Quarterly results were notable for the close correlation of production and sales, demonstrating the traditional ‘flush through’ effect in Q4.

Analyst Interview - Silver Wheaton

Industry outlook

Guidance for FY18 is for production of 22.5Moz Ag and 355koz Au – primarily as a result of adjustments to the San Dimas stream after it is taken over by First Majestic, at which point WPM will also become a majority gold-streaming business. Otherwise, assuming no material purchases of additional streams (which is unlikely), we forecast a value for WPM of US$35.13/sh (or C$45.93) in FY20. In the meantime, it is trading on near-term financial ratios that are cheaper than its royalty/streaming ‘peers’ in 95% of instances and the miners themselves in at least 36% of the same measures, despite being associated with materially less operating and cost risk.
