HC Wainwright reiterated their buy rating on shares of Golden Queen Mining (OTCMKTS:GQMNF) in a research report released on Friday morning.

“We also highlight that lower mining costs and a higher production profile resulted in a slightly improved $1.2 million loss from mine operations in 3Q18, compared to an $1.8 million loss in 3Q17. That said, a $1.0 million YoY decline in the gain on derivatives contracts contributed to the slight YoY decline in attributable earnings. We view the firm’s results as encouraging, since the company was able to report higher revenue amid an improved loss from mine operations despite the significant decline in metals prices. We highlight that operations have continued to improve, which we believe should position the firm well to generate improved earnings and cash flow once metals prices rebound.”,” the firm’s analyst wrote.

GQMNF stock traded up $0.02 during midday trading on Friday, hitting $0.12. The company had a trading volume of 19,901 shares, compared to its average volume of 137,517. Golden Queen Mining has a 52 week low of $0.10 and a 52 week high of $0.23.
