Investment summary

Wheaton is to release its Q321 results on Thursday 4 November, after the market close in Toronto. Ahead of the publication of its actual results, we have revised our earnings forecast for the quarter to reflect actual versus estimated precious metals prices (especially palladium, which has fallen from a high in the quarter of US$2,859/oz on 12 July to US$1,811/oz currently) and a slightly delayed ramp in production from lingering coronavirus-induced disruptions at Salobo in Brazil.

Industry outlook

Under normal circumstances, we believe that WPM could easily justify a valuation of US$64.92 (or C$81.86) per share, in FY23. If precious metals return to favour however, we believe that a valuation as high as US$88.02 (C$111.24) is achievable. In the meantime, it remains cheaper than the average valuations of its peers in at least 66% of cases. This follows the settlement reached between WPM and the CRA in December 2018 whereby income from WPM’s international subsidiaries will remain exempt from Canadian tax.
