Despite the immediate negative reaction to the ouster of Molycorp (MCP) CEO Mark Smith - shares -5.5% premarket - investors may come around to a more positive view. Smith "had lost credibility" with constituents, shareholders, potential investors and analysts, a J.P.

    This is exactly why I'm a bit surprised by the market reaction. It can easily be seen as a positive development that may help close the SEC investigation with minimum damage. If that's the case, MCP should rise double-digit %, not fall 6%

    It's a good move, but there are those of us who simply don't believe MCP can do well as a US-based miner. Aside from any problems on site and in execution.
