NEW YORK,  February 25, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting
Pan American Silver Corp. (NASDAQ: PAAS), Hecla Mining Company (NYSE: HL), The
Walt Disney Company  (NYSE:DIS), Time Warner Inc. (NYSE:TWX) and Abbott
Laboratories (NYSE: ABT). Today's readers may access these reports free of
charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings -
via the links below.


During Q3 2012, silver mining company Pan American Silver Corp. produced 6.9
million ounces of silver, an increase of 30 percent over Q3 2011. The company
has produced 25.1 million ounces for the full year, an increase of 15 percent
from 2011.  Geoff Burns, president and CEO of Pan American noted that the
company achieving its target for silver production and cash costs was the result
of the acquisition and integration of the Dolores mine. Its La Colorada and San
Vicente mines also established new annual silver production records. In 2013,
Pan American expects to produce 25 to 26 million ounces of silver, and cash
costs are forecast at  $11.80 to $12.80  per ounce of silver. Capital
investments in 2013 are expected to total  $157 million. Chief Operating Officer
 Steve Busby  sees 2013 to be another record-setting production year for the
company. For the next quarter, analysts forecast Pan American's silver
production and sales of 6.3/6Moz at an average cost of  $13/oz. The Full

Shares of Hecla Mining Company, the largest and one of the lowest cash cost
silver producers in the US, climbed 3.05 percent and closed at  $5.41  in the
last trading session. At the market close on  February 4, Hecla only fell  six
cents  or 1.1 percent, to  $5.35. The loss was due to the shutting down of its
Lucky Mine to make some safety improvements. This year, the mine is going to be
reopened, gearing up for a big production boost. The company expects to hit
production of over 2 million ounces by the end of 2013. The company also sports
a solid balance sheet and pays a dividend as well, that's why analysts and
investors are still confident with Hecla. Demand for precious metals, including
silver, will always be there. Unlike gold, silver has more utility, being more
widely used in industrial and medical applications. By 2015, silver production
for industrial use is expected to rise to 660 million, leaving around 240
million ounces available for investing. Analysts are seeing that silver prices
are likely to go much higher in the future. The Full Research Report on Hecla

Disney is the owner of ABC, one of the "Big 3" US TV networks, sports-centric
ESPN Television Network, and two famous amusement parks, Disney World in 
Florida  and Disneyland in  California. Its biggest cash cow, ESPN, is also the
world's largest sports network. In addition, their acquisitions of Marvel and
Pixar have made wonders for the company with recent box office hits like The
Avengers and Toy Story 3 and will continue to do so. A more recent acquisition,
Star Wars franchise owner Lucasfilm, will add on to the success as a brand new
trilogy of the popular (and very profitable) franchise is set to come to your
nearest theaters soon. A Motley Fool report calls Disney as "the most magical
investment on Earth," with its globally recognized and loved brands, stable
revenue and earnings growth, a diverse all-weather portfolio of products, proven
pricing power, and relatively low debt. The Full Research Report on THE Walt
Disney Company  - including full detailed breakdown, analyst ratings and price

TIME WARNER INC. Research Report

Meanwhile, Time Warner has bounced back from its failed merger with AOL with a
resurgent stock price at the  $100  level from its 2009 low of just a little
more than  $20  per share. Like Disney, the company's largest division is its TV
networks business, with TBS, TNT, and premium channel HBO, and accounted for
about 75 percent of Time Warner's operating profit in 2011.The company is
reported to be selling its 1.1 million square-foot headquarters in  New York,
relinquishing the last remnant of its ill-fated AOL merger. Reuters indicate
that the building could go as much as  $1 billion. However, the company may
still keep its portion of the Time Warner Center complex. In addition, their
magazine unit Time Inc. will be cutting 6 percent of its workforce, or about 500
people, so they can be "leaner, more nimble, and [be able to] operate on
multiple platforms," according to Time CEO  Laura Lang. The Full Research Report

Abbott Laboratories focuses on the sales of medical devices, generic drugs,
diagnostic tests, and nutritionals. It recently reported its fourth quarter
earnings, noting a 4% increase in revenue as compared to the fourth quarter of
2011. Operating income grew 16% from its levels a year earlier. While earnings
were down, the company was able to reduce much of its debt. A total of 80
percent of the company's diagnostic sales are from international markets, with
35 percent from emerging markets like  Russia,  China, and  Brazil. In the
future, Abbott will focus on these markets because they are free from the
austerity measures in  Europe  as well as the Affordable Care Act in the U.S.
The company projects earning-per-share guidance of  $1.98 to $2.04  per share in
2013, ahead of most analyst forecasts. To emphasize how confident the company is
about its future, a member of its Board of Directors recently bought 10,000
shares of stock. The Full Research Report on Abbott Laboratories - including
