    Demand for rare earth oxides has troughed, which could be good news for Molycorp (MCP) after another 12% decline in prices during May, Morgan Stanley says, but additional supply from MCP and Lynas in H2 of this year could put prices back under pressure. The firm keeps its Equal Weight rating on MCP but raises its Q2 EPS estimate to a $0.25 loss from a $0.30 loss. MCP +2% premarket.

    Molycorp (MCP +5.8%) posts its second straight strong gain, as the picture grows brighter: Large stockpiles of rare earths are finally starting to dwindle, and top competitor Lynas is undergoing regulatory problems with Malaysia's government. How much higher can MCP climb? Oracle's Laurence Balter has a $50 price target, but shares still would be shy of their 2011 summer high near $7.

    Australian miner Lynas (LYSCF.PK -12%) gives back all of the gains it made following parliamentary approval in Malaysia on Tuesday of a controversial rare earths processing facility.

    With many rare-earth stocks (REMX) near 52-week lows, now may be the time to dig in to sector bargains, Jacob Securities' Luisa Moreno says. Prices for rare-earth elements "are approaching levels which are economic again," so she sees demand starting to pick up and prices stabilizing in H2. It may take time to affect stocks, but she likes MCP, TAS, MTCEF.PK, LYSCF.PK.
