Investors need to pay close attention to Hecla Mining (HL) stock based on the movements in the options market lately.
Over the last month the Hecla Mining Company (NYSE:HL) has been much stronger than before, rebounding by 32%. But that...
Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") downgraded the Corporate Family Rating of Hecla Mining Company (Hecla) to Caa1 from B2, the probability of default rating to Caa1-PD from B2-PD and senior unsecured notes to Caa2 from B3. "The downgrade is driven by a significant deterioration in Hecla's credit profile and Moody's expectations that operational challenges and high execution risks at several of the company's mines as well as potential liquidity constraints could impede the improvement in credit metrics over the next 12-18 months," said Botir Sharipov, Vice President and lead analyst for Hecla. Hecla's Caa1 corporate family rating reflects its modest scale with revenues of $580 million for the twelve months ended March 31, 2019, exposure to volatile gold, silver, zinc and lead prices, high cost position, rising leverage, declining earnings and the weakened liquidity profile.
