First Majestic Silver Corp. Research Report

After First Majestic's efforts to acquire Orko Silver Corp., the company decided to abort its interest in the company as Coeur d'Alene made a bid that First Majestic does not want to match. In a company statement, First Majestic said that beating Coeur's $383.3 million offer is not economically sustainable. Some analysts said that First Majestic's notable decision protects its shareholder value and return on investment. First Majestic is reportedly receiving a breakup fee of $11.6 million from Coeur.

Hecla Mining Co. Research Report

The Lucky Friday mine operation of Hecla raked in 25% growth for silver production after it was halted for repair in April 2011. The company reported $321.1 million in revenues and $143.5 million in gross profit for 2012 which was generated by its Green Creek operation. Since Hecla's Lucky Friday is already operational, the company is expecting better revenues from 8 to 9 million ounces of silver production for full-year 2013. Hecla also saw an increased growth in gold mineralized material of 1.7 million tons. Successful exploration programs in 2012 are expected to unlock Hecla's new chapter for long-term growth.

Newmont Mining Corp. Research Report

Operating in various regions may be a good strategy for Newmont as the company continues to prioritize Akyem, Batu Hiaju, Conga and Tanami. The company is expected to significantly invest on these projects while it continues exploration and production in other locations. Newmont recently reported an increase in gold reserves to 99.2 million ounces while copper reserves are at 9.5 billion pounds. The company is allocating $249 million for exploration, and 40% of which will proceed to North America while the remaining will be distributed to Asia Pacific, Africa, South America and other resource-rich locations that are yet to be confirmed by Newmont.

Pan American Silver Corp. Research Report

Analysts and investors are bullish that Pan American may perform better than its peers as the company posted new records for silver and gold production. Pan American produced 25.1 million ounces of silver and 112,300 million ounces of gold for full-year 2012. The company announced that its reserves increased by 317 million ounces for proven and probable silver reserves and 2.4 million ounces for proven and probable gold reserves. A great increase in reserves is probably one of the reasons why investors are attracted to the stock as Pan American looks assured of future growth and great revenues.
