U.S. solar stocks rally strongly ahead of a Tuesday speech from Pres. Obama in which he's expected to outline plans to effectively double the amount of renewable energy created on public lands by 2020 (enough to power 6M homes), and to impose regulations of carbon dioxide output from U.S. power plans. First Solar (FSLR +7.6%), which received an upgrade and a bullish coverage launch yesterday, is the biggest winner, but SunEdison (SUNE +5.6%) and SunPower (SPWR +4.2%) are also doing well.
