Our reduced PT was the result of updated financials amid a greater share count. Our valuation remains based on an equally weighted composite of our NAV estimate and our 2020E CFPS. Our NAV remains predicated on a DCF of Hecla’s operating assets, utilizing a 7.0% discount rate, which is in-line with similar assets in equal geopolitical climates. We also maintain our previous NAV multiple of 1.25x in addition to our unchanged 13x CFPS multiple." (8/8/2019)
