First Solar (FSLR -4%) is making new all-time lows after badly missing Q1 estimates and appointing a permanent CEO, though the bloodletting seen in recent months is limiting its decline. During its earnings call, First Solar noted ASPs for solar modules fell another 13% Q/Q in 2012, though it expects pricing to improve. DNB Markets is upgrading shares to Buy on hopes of improving cash flow. Others are more cautious for the expected reasons (I, II, III).

    One might think you believe the name of this site is "Seeking Politics."

     

    FYI, it is not.

    you must be kidding. Clean energy is all about politics...come to think about it, the entire energy sector is all about politics. (btw: looking back, you do a lot of political commenting on SA)

    Solar Energy has been a favorite method of repaying Oboma supporters with working peoples money.

     

    I don't know there is an FSLR/Oboma connection though, at least they are the leader in the field of solar energy.

    The entire issue lies with the gov't not having the #$%^& to stop the subsidies for oil, farm, coal, etc... and to admit that their "start up" help from the gov't SHOULD be over, and now, let's put a little $$$ help to getting clean energy up and on its feet. It is my understanding that was the reasoning behind "subsidies" in the first place.
