Shares of rare earth miner Molycorp (NYSE: MCP) are seeing upside after Gabelli upgraded from Hold to Buy this morning.

The firm said while speculative, they believe that the long-term prospects for the company remain attractive and that Molycorp is the best vehicle to gain exposure to the rare earth industry. They said the recent financing provides liquidity to the company through the first-half of 2013. This while the company is hitting its milestones to get Phase 1 production online on time and on budget.

They also said the risk are already priced in. "Although rare earth prices remain weak and cost overruns for Project Phoenix remain a risk, we believe much of the risk is reflected in the current stock price."

The firm has a 2013 PMV target of $21.
