Investment summary

Wheaton Precious Metals’ (WPM) Q122 results are scheduled for release on Thursday 5 May, after the market close in Toronto (approximately 22.30 London time). Ahead of their release, we have honed our estimates to reflect production and sales of silver from Penasquito (announced by Newmont on 22 April), likely gold production from Salobo, based on its copper output (announced by Vale on 19 April) and production of silver at Antamina (announced by Glencore on 28 April). We have also adjusted our forecasts for the remainder of the year for recent moves in metals prices.

Industry outlook

Ordinarily, we believe that WPM could justify a valuation of US$55.69 or C$71.34 per share in FY23. With precious metals returning to favour however, we believe that a valuation as high as US$71.25 (C$91.27) is achievable. In the meantime, it remains cheaper than its peers on as many as 83% of common valuation multiples (Edison estimates). This follows the settlement between WPM and the CRA in December 2018 which exempted WPM’s international subsidiaries from Canadian tax. A recent sustainability report also highlights WPM’s strong ESG credentials. Q1 results are scheduled for 5 May.
