According to The Fly, h.C. Wainwright analyst Heiko Ihle reiterated a Buy rating on Golden Queen Mining (GQMNF) today. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $0.11, close to its 52-week low of $0.10.

Ihle wrote:

“We also highlight that lower mining costs and a higher production profile resulted in a slightly improved $1.2 million loss from mine operations in 3Q18, compared to an $1.8 million loss in 3Q17. That said, a $1.0 million YoY decline in the gain on derivatives contracts contributed to the slight YoY decline in attributable earnings. We view the firm’s results as encouraging, since the company was able to report higher revenue amid an improved loss from mine operations despite the significant decline in metals prices. We highlight that operations have continued to improve, which we believe should position the firm well to generate improved earnings and cash flow once metals prices rebound.”

According to, Ihle has 0 stars on 0-5 star ranking scale with an average return of -10.9% and a 22.8% success rate. Ihle covers the Basic Materials sector, focusing on stocks such as Solitario Exploration & Royalty, Americas Silver Corporation, and Golden Star Resources Ltd.
