    Goldman's Brian Lee expects shares of Molycorp (MCP +7.3%) "will trade higher in the near-term given the removal of [the SEC] overhang" (previous). Nevertheless, the "fundamentals [are] relatively challenging," he says, as MCP "ramps toward full-scale Phase I production at its Mountain Pass facility [and as] rare earth prices have begun to experience declines in recent months." In other words: Investors may want to curb their enthusiasm after today's gains.

    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.

    China's exports of rare earth metals have rallied in recent months, a trend attributed to low rare earth prices and Japanese demand. But Molycorp (MCP -2.9%), whose shares have jumped 30% in the past two weeks, says it might be premature to assume a firm turnaround in global demand: "Inventories have been built up over the past several years, and they are returning to more normal levels now."

    Molycorp (MCP) +5.4% premarket on a report that China exported 2,196 metric tons of rare earth in April, a 28% rise from March, and 6,112 tons in the first four months of this year, double the year-ago volume. The data indicates bargain hunting may be reviving global demand for rare earth metals.

    Molycorp (MCP +35.5%) shares are at the day's high after better-than-expected Q1 results, but at least some analysts remain cautious. Stifel Nicolaus cuts its 2013 earnings forecast on an assumed sales volume decline in part of MCP's business and more conservative pricing. Goldman Sachs shares concerns about pricing until the integration of its chlor-alkali plant later this year.

    A new processing facility at Molycorp's (MCP +20.5%) Mountain Pass mine should reach full production by mid-year, but a chlor-alkali plant at the mine that would allow for cost cuts by recycling some chemicals is not due to start operating until later in the year, MCP says in last night's conference call. MCP will be unable to sufficiently cut costs until the plant is online, so it may cut production at the processing plant.

    More on Molycorp's (MCPQ1 results: Says production ramp-up at Mountain Pass remains on course, and increasing production is allowing production for end-use customers and providing greater feedstock to downstream, value-added processing facilities. Sees signs of a return to more normal demand levels as the year progresses. Continues to expect H1 results weaker than H2 2012. Shares +8.9% AH.
