    Short Interest increases again.

    It is certainly good to see that the recent rise hasn't been solely on the basis of short covering.

    My take = more shorting into the buying interest strength that followed the production increase PR. Likely more shorting here at the $1 mark as well. Gots to keep the lid on so it doesn't run up and away.

    Meanwhile, I wonder how many more shares may have been purchased by long term holders and effectively taken out of the float thats available for trading/covering. The institutional data is quite dated since they don't have to report until 45 days after the quarter ends.

    bear raids sells seem to be having less and less effect at freeing up shares and depressing the price

    my expectation would be that China would only impose tarriffs on REE's produced in China. That would increase prices directly for those RRE's. I expect the price of other REE's would also rise in sympathy with an improvement in the market.

    China could impose tarriff's on REE's that aren't produced in China, but that wouldn't have any direct effect since there would be no production to tarriff.

    China’s upcoming end of rare earth tariffs is stirring the market as all eyes are on whether the policymakers will introduce new legislation to push up rare earth prices before the end of April. “If” this take place, we should anticipate a sharp rise in rare earth resource taxes, which will undoubtedly impact the price of rare earth exports — driving prices north.

    As a result of this, the price of terbium and dysprosium have already seen a dramatic rise already with an increase of 47.73% and 21.52% respectively just since November.

    For those new to the space, terbium and dysprosium are key to clean energy technologies. Vital to the manufacturing of hybrid electric vehicles and wind turbines. which are important for their potential role in reducing future pollution emissions in China: they also widely use in several high technology industrial products, from consumer electronics to missile systems

    opposite of pump and dump......short and distort

    but you are correct, they are simply fear mongerers

    shot to 0.96 then pulled back and based at ~0.70. Then shot to 1.13, now pulled back and seems to be basing in low 0.90s.

    Large spike in volume on the move up, decreasing volume on the pull back.

    Looks good to me.

    "a recent look at freight-on-board (FOB) rare earths prices from China revealed that “for the first time since the first quarter of 2011, the prices for magnet materials have moved up over the last three months.”

    Magnet materials include rare earths used to make rare earth magnets — the strongest type of magnet available in terms of weight and volume. These rare earths include neodymium, praseodymium, terbium, dysprosium and didymium, which is a blend of praseodymium and neodymium."

    Neodymium and Praseodymium

    Neodymium magnets are much more powerful than alternatives, providing better performance from a smaller size which has lead to many miniaturized applications.

    Your cell phone, portable CD player, computer or sound system would not exist in their current form without the use of strong permanent magnets made possible by Neodymium. Cellular phones contain both Neodymium magnets and capacitor, which produce powerful electronic generation and boost the power of these communication devices.

    Tiny Neodymium magnets are used to drive the speakers within earphones, including Apple’s popular iPod music player, as well as in numerous other high performance speakers, headphones or buds; resulting in smaller, lighter speakers with faster base response and lower overall distortion. Another recent use has been the inclusion of neodymium based magnetic pickups for bass guitars.

  • "China is implementing a new system of export licensing for rare earth metals. This gives the government even greater control of the market because it can control which Chinese rare earth companies can export.

    Adding to that, China is also cracking down on illegal mining operations.

    Thus, we are in for a real squeeze on heavy rare earth elements and praseodymium, a light rare earth."

  • - doubled production from 3Q to 4Q
    - REE prices rising
    - Consumer products using REE in high demand
    - China crack down on illegal mining through export licensing

    given up on for bk rumors, ridiculously low price, heavily shorted, increasing demand for consumer products that use REE, and now rising REE prices.......

    MCP went to 0.28 on bankruptcy fears. If that risk discount is removed, what is the fair value of MCP?

    For most of 2013 and 1/2 of 2014 MCP traded in the $5-8 range. In May 2014 it went from $5 to $3 practically overnight as the bk rumor thing got started. As that fear turns to greed, where should a provider of a strategic mineral trade based on long-term prospects? I dunno but much higher is pretty likely I'd say.

    neodymium?
