Molycorp rating cut at Moody's; -5.8% AH

  • "The downgrade reflects continued weakness in rare earths pricing environment, ongoing negative free cash flows, weak liquidity and high leverage," says Moody's cutting Molycorp's (MCP) CFR rating to Caa2 from Caa1. "The [Mountain Pass] project's cost overruns left the company with absolute debt levels that may be unsustainable in a current price environment."

    So what is news here????? Another Johnny come lately downgrade. At $2+ it trades like a call option. And as for the insider selling, I can only imagine that the low price may have precipitated a margin call!

    I have a few hundred shares that I bought @ $13. No point in selling, should recover at some point.
