China is showing that things are still recovering. Good copper prices at over $3.40 so they are making a ton of cash. Earnings this year should be in the $7 range and possibly higher next year when they get the new mine up. Spain is finally online. Fabulous asset in Panama that could be a game changer. Expecting a double in the next 2-3 years.
