Piper is downgrading four solar names - LDK Solar (LDK -4.4%), Trina Solar (TSL -5%), Yingli (YGE -3.2%), and JA Solar (JASO -4.5%), while upgrading two others - Canadian Solar (CSIQ +1.4%) and SunPower (SPWR +0.2%). The downgrades relate to worries about pricing and margins, though LDK's high debt load is also discussed. The CSIQ and SPWR upgrades stem from optimism about the companies' project installation and U.S. residential ops, respectively.

    Piper could not find their rear ends with a torch and both hands.
    They will wait until these stocks have tripled in price then upgrade them.

    Speaking of rear in general, although, solar energy is taking a rear seat for now. Electric powered vehicles seem to be on the rise in sales and popularity.
