Hecla Mining (NYSE:HL) Among Top Movers

Hecla Mining (NYSE:HL), which along with Silver Wheaton (NYSE:SLW), was among the top movers on Friday, as after absorbing economic data, skyrocketed along with other silver and gold mining stocks.

For silver miners, Hecla did something most others didn't, and that was after falling with the others on Monday's sell-off, they continued on up gradually for the rest of the week, while the rest remained level before the big upward movement.

Most never recovered from the huge hit they took to start the week, and so were down even after the great Friday.

Hecla finished the day and week at $5.78, a gain of $0.29 for the day, or 5.28 percent.

That made them one of the few silver stocks to end the week in positive territory.
