Wheaton Precious Metals Corp (TSE:WPM, NYSE:WPM) shares surged on Thursday in light of Cameco Corporation's (TSE:CCO, NYSE:CCJ) favourable tax ruling, which could create enhanced opportunity for the silver streaming company's tax settlement, according to Scotiabank analyst Trevor Turnbull. 

Shares of Wheaton Precious Metals were up 4.8% at C$22.74 in Toronto and up 4.7% at US$17.45 in New York.

Scotiabank analyst Trevor Turnbull says WPM has a very strong fact set and foresees a greater opportunity for a settlement in light of the CCJ outcome, according to a report from Bloomberg's First Word. 

Turnbull notes the Canada Revenue Agency disputed aspects of CCJ’s foreign subsidiary, whereas it has not made any issue of WPM’s Cayman Island structure and subsidiary.

It's reported that WPM's appeal of the CRA reassessment is scheduled to begin in mid-September 2019, with a ruling likely to take up to a year following the trial.
