Expert Comments:

Charles Gibson, Edison Investment Research (2/15/18)
"We value the cash flows to Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. from San Dimas for the period FY18 to FY33 at $252.90, or $0.57/Wheaton share, once the First Majestic-Primero transaction concludes. . .we expect Wheaton to become a majority gold streaming company [there]. . .investors [are] in line for a 37.6% internal rate of return over three years."

Charles Gibson, Edison Investment Research (1/25/18)
"Wheaton Precious Metals Corp.'s Q3/17 results were little changed compared to Q2/17. . .the San Dimas stream has been restructured after First Majestic's bid for Primero in early 2018. . .as at the time of its Q3/17 results, we forecast a value per share for Wheaton of $38.24, or CA$48.54, in FY20. . .Wheaton's shares are trading on near-term financial measures that are consistently cheaper than those of its royalty/streaming 'peers' and are cheaper than the miners themselves in 41% of cases, despite being associated with materially less risk."

"Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. has terminated the existing San Dimas silver purchase agreement with Primero Mining (100% of silver of first 6 Moz silver, 50% of excess thereafter) and will now receive 25% of gold equivalent production at a fixed gold:silver exchange ratio of 70:1. . .we value the new streaming agreement at $530M (new stream terms plus production upside plus value of First Majestic shares) versus $440M for the previous stream."

Cosmos Chiu, CIBC World Markets (1/15/18)
"Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. is restructuring its streaming agreement at San Dimas. . .this is positive news for the company, with the asset now in the hands of a stronger operator. . .the agreement is accretive to Wheaton's NAV by 2%. We are increasing our price target from $24 to $25 and reiterate our Outperformer rating."

Brian MacArthur, Raymond James (1/12/18)
"Wheaton Precious Metals Corp. has agreed to enter into a new stream agreement with First Majestic and terminate the existing San Dimas silver stream. . .we believe the uncertainty on the San Dimas stream was weighing on the shares and this restructuring is a positive event. . .given the high-quality and diversified asset base, high-margin and scalable business model of the company, we rate its shares Outperform."
