10:06 EDTMCP, SI, NSANYMolycorp rises after Bloomberg says company could be takeover target
Shares of rare earth mining company Molycorp (MCP) are trading higher this morning after a Bloomberg "Real M&A" article said the company could be a takeover target. According to data compiled by Bloomberg, Molycorp, which owns the largest U.S. deposit of "rare earth" metals that go into everything from smartphones to hybrid cars, is trading at a 19% discount to its book value. The company's stock slid 61% in 2012 as it faced problems like slumping prices of rare earths, the departure of its CEO, cost overruns at its California mines and a regulatory probe. Byron Capital Markets believes manufacturers from Nissan (NSANY) to Siemens (SI) could be interested in making a bid for Molycorp, according to Bloomberg. The report also noted that Robert W. Baird & Co believes the $1.3B company could appeal to private-equity firms, but mining companies may not be as eager to pursue the company, and that Goldman Sachs believes Molycorp could fetch $15 per share in a takeover, a 59% premium to its close on December 31. Molycorp advanced $1.43, or 15.15%, to $10.87 in early-morning trading.
