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 (NYSE:F) 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.
