With Molycorp (NYSE:MCP) crushing analysts' estimates for the last quarter, you must consider whether the once-beloved stocks of the rare-earth industry are ready to run again. Over the last few weeks, Molycorp has outperformed its peers in the precious metals markets, including both the SPDR Gold Trust (NYSEMKT:GLD) and the iShares Silver Trust (NYSEMKT:SLV).
