First Solar (FSLR +13.5%) jumps and helps fuel a broader rally in solar stocks (TAN +4%) after stating it will hold off on closing a German solar module plant (previous) until year's end due to strong Euro demand, and is actually increasing the plant's output for the time being.The plant was originally scheduled to be shuttered in October. 48.2% of First Solar's float was shorted as of May 15, and shares remain down sharply over the last 12 months.
