Is it time to sell this rare-earth mining corporation?

In the following video, Motley Fool energy analyst Taylor Muckerman takes a question from a Fool follower on Facebook, who asks: "What is your opinion on Molycorp (NYSE: MCP)? Should I take my loss and sell?"

Here's a hint: 2013 could be friendly to Molycorp investors in the latter half of the year. Automotive demand continues to climb, as evidenced by Ford's (F 3.89%) strongest March in six years. This should help push inventories lower and allow prices to pick up as Molycorp's new CEO expects them to.
