    2011 Revenue, EPS Projection

    If you use 2009 production levels for all four metals and apply today's price of those metals HL would have an annualized revenue in 2011 of $762 million. That compares to revenue of $312 million in 2009.

    When we get 2010 numbers next week we can redo the math.

    But, the point is that HL earned $54 million in 2009 on revenues of $312 million. If they have revenues of $762 in 2011 what will there earnings be this year? Well, most of the increased revenue should drop to the bottom line since it is from price increases with no increased costs applied. Therefore earnings in 2011 could exceed $400 million and even approach $500 million. That would be $1.60 to $2.00 a share. A 20X multiple would put HL at $32 to $40 a share. Just the facts folks. Good luck all.
