Investors, based on this information, ask yourself the following question:
HOW MUCH RISK CAPITAL DO I HAVE TO INVEST TODAY, LOSE IT ALL SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE, BUT NOT HAVE TO WORRY THAT A TOTAL LOSS WILL HAVE A MATERIAL IMPACT ON MY FINANCIAL WELL-BEING?
WHATEVER THAT SUM OF MONEY IS THAT IS GREATER THAN ZERO, THAT IS THE AMOUNT I WOULD INVEST IN MOLYCORP NOW!!!
There is the upside that rare earths appear to be a strategic asset for this nation's security. If Molycorp has the only potentially economic feasible US based mine containing rare earths in this country, I would rather expend my risk capital with this stock, than say at your favorite neighborhood casino.
