The real kicker will be if they start paying dividends!
We all know the earning will be great! It is what they do with the earnings. They either par a stock dividend or a cash dividend. I believe a cash dividend would have investors buying more of the stock and driving the price higher.
It's hard to believe, but this company is still in growth stages and is valued more closely the POS than anything else. Barnes has said he's sticking to current deals, so payment back for capitalizing mines is almost instanter--and the profit not only just falls to SLW, it has almost no cost except $4 an ounce and about $4.50 to the company for administering the company.
The only better printing machine is Geitner's. At least ours is real and backed by our Founding Fathers and the Constitution.
Neither bullish or bearish on earnings, and short term/long term prices will be affected by the POS solely, in my opinion of course. Granted if there is some really bad reporting, that would would create problems. Like a mine shut down or news of this sorts.
Market's alway's anticipate. The February report on earning's will be outstanding, given the recent surge in silver prices, that will not be reflected in the November earning's report. Also,SLW has A+ management and, unlike other silver miner's, SLW is uneffected by these higher oil prices(the price of oil is a major expense of a silver miner). Those two reason's are that SLW is my top investment silver holding. SVM is my only other silver holding. The reason that I like SVM is that they also have A+ management, but also their cost of production is the best in the silver mining sector.
