Rare earth miners take off

  • Rare earth miners Rare Element Resources (REE +12.9%), Avalon Rare Metals (AVL +3.7%), and Quest Rare Minerals (QRM +11.7%) have joined Molycorp (previous) in rallying sharply. Equity markets have doled out plenty of punishment to the group this year.
  • SA contributor Hawkinvest has provided a bullish write-up on Molycorp, arguing a short-covering rally could take place in early 2014.
  • The Rare Earth/Strategic Metals ETF (REMX +0.7%) remains down 32% YTD.

    AVL is more or less a scam. They have not dug a hole in years.

    Does anyone care to explain - or hazard a guess as to - why the pop occurred in the Rare Earth sector?

    Blackbrit,
    Click on "Hawkinvest" above. Bullish article was written about possible short covering in January. The "pop" is sector related.

    Referring to your username..."Kettle calling the pot black" much?

    Check out REE and it's patented ore process. Shipping 90% pure ore is a game changer.
