Hecla Mining Company (HL)

Background: Mining Company, together with its subsidiaries, discovers, acquires, develops, produces, and markets precious and base metals worldwide. It offers gold and silver to precious metals traders; and lead, zinc, and bulk concentrates to custom smelters.

Investors aren't expecting an improvement in earnings. Analysts forecast per share results below last year in the same quarter. The earnings release is planned before the market opens on August 8, 2013.

The average estimate is currently one cent a share, backsliding one cent (50%) from 2 cent during the matching period in the previous year. Analysts are estimating as low as losing one cent per share, up to the most optimistic estimate of 2 cents per share.

Investors are receiving 4 cents in dividends for a yield of 1.2%.

With short interest above 5%, investors will want to monitor changes to know if short sellers turn up the warning signals. Otherwise, the current 7.2% of the float short is relatively small and not a major concern.
