Personally not expecting much, neither are the analyst's by looking at the guesstimets -.02 -.04 A break even or + a penny or two would be a pleasant surprise considering the co. is still in a transition period & the low prices in PM. Some times I think we forget HL. is NOT just all PM with the acquisition. Co. project's forward revenue will be split about 50-50 between PM's & Lead, zinc etc. Considering the "blue sky" economy pumper's feel that emerging market demand for the "basic" material's will pick up, HL has a decent cushion in place should PM's languish a bit longer & economies show a little steady improvement--HL has BOTH scenario's covered. Everything except a paralyzing downward spiral of deflation--that would probably see the fed . literally dropping fiat from that black benny chopper! Highly unlikely though we get to that point.
"Personally not expecting much" may be the only accurate thing you have ever stated in your entire life. You do not expect much because HL is a dungpile stock that couldn't rally its way out of a can of Miller Lite.
IMO you do not expect anything from HL in the same way that you would not expect anything from a mentally challenged inbred chimpanzee invalid such as blieviam. GLTU. SS
