    Fxdudeinmia, I just feel more confident on First Solar after I've read your comments, thank you. And I'll put my fslr away in the safety box for 5-10 years. Then I'll come with two big thick black bags and haul the cash out from the box. lol.

  • First Solar's Last Bet [View article]
    FSLR was trading at its peak price of $300 in 2008. Today FSLR is trading merely at $38. What had happened between then and now? Five year ago, many investors jumped on this sector and pushed up the solar sector to its highest. They were betting on solar companies to be the most viable energy source in order to meet the demand for energy in the United States and the world. There were many solar companies popping up trying to get in on the action. And that's when they saw inventories piling up and the demand for the solar was not as strong as expected. So the solar sector began to see their stock prices plummet fast.

    FSLR in 2008 was at its peak and trading at PE ratios of around 250. Today it's trading at $38 with PE ratios at 11. For 2013, FSLR forecast their net sales to be around 3.8- 4 billion compared to 2008 net sales of 348 million. They expect current earnings of 4-4.5 per share compared to 1.20 earnings per share in 2008. They have .8- 1 billion in cash compared to 580 million in 2008. FSLR survived the tough times through their many acquisitions and renovations while other smaller companies have gone bankrupt.

    If you look at FSLR's business then and now, FSLR is actually a stronger company than they were in 2008. Because of its growth and having over billions in cash, FSLR should be trading higher than $38. I believe the solar sector is going to be a definite replacement for future energy growth. With less competition, their innovative leadership, and their advanced photovoltaic (PV) solar panels, FSLR stand to gain market share going forward.

  • Why First Solar's Analyst Day Did Not Sway Our View [View article]
    If you own FSLR and the stock went up from $27 to $37 in just a few trading sessions, would you sell or would you hold onto it?

    Some would tell you to sell, wait until it comes back down to around $30, and then buy it back again. I'm of a differing opinion. What if the price never comes back down? You have to ask yourself why you bought the stock in the first place. Did you buy it because it was... cheap and you know for certain that it's going to cap off at $37 OR did you buy it because you believe in the company (and the industry) and you're hoping it will go as high as $200-$300. I believe this stock has unlimited potential. FSLR is still cheap. It's trading at a PE ratio of 11. That is lower than the industry average. FSLR is the global leader in solar energy. It developed the most advanced photovoltaic grid integration capability in the Photovoltaic (PV) industry. Their energy systems help protect and enhance the environment.

    FSLR was a $300 stock back in 2008. It has that potential to reach that peak again. I'm bullish with FSLR. I believe it will double by the end of next year.
