Company news

Investment summary

WPM's Q218 underlying results (excluding an exceptional gain relating to the San Dimas stream) were closely in line with our forecasts, with sales correlating closely with production. Prior to that, WPM acquired a cobalt stream from Vale's Voisey's Bay mine for US$390m. Since then, it has acquired a gold/palladium stream from Sibanye's Stillwater mine for US$500m. We estimate that the two transactions together will increase basic EPS by an aggregate 10.3c per share once both are operational after FY21. Nevertheless they leave WPM with capacity for up to c US$0.7bn in additional deals as at end-Q318.

Industry outlook

Assuming no material purchases of additional streams, we forecast a value for WPM of US$33.00/share (C$43.25/share) in FY21. In the meantime, it is trading on near-term financial ratios that are cheaper than its royalty/streaming peers on 91% of typical valuation measures and the miners themselves on at least 37% of the same measures, despite being associated with materially less risk.
