What: Shares of silver and gold producer Hecla Mining
So what: A fervent return of investors' appetite for risk sent silver and gold prices slumping Tuesday, with miners Hecla, U.S. Gold
Now what: I wouldn't rush into Hecla just yet. Even with today's plunge, it's still up more than 100% over the past six months, and it trades at a lofty-ish 35-plus P/E. Of course, at the right price, Hecla is a low-debt, free-cash-flow-generating, well-managed inflation fighter that Fools should certainly consider.
