    olycorp (NYSE: MCP - News), the largest U.S.-based rare earths miner, is higher by 1% after a Bloomberg News piece highlighted the company's rising market value, now $4 billion, as an advantage that makes acquisitions cheaper for the company. CIBC today initiated Molycorp with a "sector outperformer" with an $80 price target, which implies upside of almost 60% from where the shares currently trade.

    The bank gave the same rating to Avalon Rare Metals (AMEX: AVL - News) along with a $9.50 price target. A fund manager quoted by Bloomberg mentioned Avalon Rare Metals as a possible takeover target for Molycorp, which has helped send shares of Avalon higher by 4%
