Investment summary

Sylvania Platinum is a low-risk platinum group metals (PGM) dump retreatment company with large cashflows that could soon equal the company’s current market capitalisation. PGM prices are in a correction phase due to a short-term worldwide computer chip shortage limiting the production of cars and PGM demand. Based in South Africa, country risk is limited due to the low labour complement. The stock price has outperformed its PGM peer group and should do so in future.

Industry outlook

A positive outlook is forecast for PGM prices except palladium, which will suffer from loss of market share of the gasoline driven vehicle to BEVs. The outlook for platinum, iridium and ruthenium over the next two decades is good due to their use in the hydrogen economy. The outlook for rhodium is good as increased loadings in gasoline autocats is scheduled in 2024. We see a balanced market for platinum to 2025 but deficits from 2028 onwards; in palladium we see growing surpluses and rhodium large deficits to 2028.
