I got CLF right last year and am still interested in resources so here goes, wait for the dividend bounce for HL to pass then see where she goes. IMHO anything around $3 is buy time. We should be out of this economic mess in 3 years and the big boys are always looking a couple of three years ahead and base metals have been a winner at the end of every recession/depression. If they start prospecting for resource stocks HL looks good to me.
Jim, I haven't checked it lately but I've been in and out of Hecla a few times in the last 20 years, scored a four bagger on it before it crashed back to earth last time around. That sucker got more lives than a cat.
