In a research report published today, Roth Capital analyst Joe Reagor reiterated coverage with a Buy rating on shares of Hecla Mining Company (HL) and a $3.75 price target, following second quarter 2014 financial results.
Reagor noted, “Adjusted EPS was in-line with our estimate, while revenue of $117.5 million was slightly below our estimate and further below consensus. The slight revenue miss appears to be related to payable ounces sold compared to reported production. Otherwise it was another steady quarter for HL. We continue to believe HL’s management is delivering on their goals and we are encouraged by continued steady results”.
