Investigating Potential Claims Involving Molycorp Inc.

Did you lose money investing in Molycorp Inc. at the recommendation of your broker? If so, the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a FINRA Arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.

The company sells its products directly to customers; and through distributors. Molycorp, Inc. was founded in 2010 in Greenwood Village, Colorado.

The company reportedly filed for bankruptcy in June 2016 with more than $1.7 billion in debt after prices for rare earths fell when China lifted export restrictions.
