Industry outlook

Under normal circumstances, we believe that WPM could easily justify a valuation of US$62.54 (or C$76.20) per share, in FY23. With precious metals returning to favour however, we believe that a valuation as high as US$84.81 (C$107.16) is achievable. In the meantime, it remains cheaper than the average valuations of its peers in at least 72% 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.
