Oracle Investment Research is going full out contrarian on Molycorp (NYSE: MCP).

Although shares are in a death spiral, Oracle is upgrading shares from Buy to Strong Buy with a price target of $50.00.

The firm notes that MCP is below the IPO price and below paid-in capital. MCP has raised a total of ~$2.3 billion, and at today's price shares are at a market cap of $1.1 billion.

They also note spot prices of REOs' are stable "and showing signs of a mild pick up." "With production quotas from China estimated to drop by 20% to 80kMT in 2013, timing of MCP to ramp up production is fortuitous."

"This raise, which we estimate to be the last, puts MCP in a comfortable cash position."
