A handful of solar names are posting big gains this morning: FSLR +6.4%. STP +5.6%. TSL +3.8%. JKS +9.1%. SOL +5.1%. The gains come even as the Chinese government, upset over the solar anti-dumping  tariffs imposed by the U.S. in May, threatens "legal measures" against American solar manufacturers over U.S. government support for various renewable energy programs.

    The big difference about US government support for renewable energy programs is that the support is earmarked for domestic consumption not exports . China does almost nothing but exports !! China has to learn to quench its thirst itself first before entertaining any export ideas... China exports so much aluminium for what purposes??/ None whatsoever!! China consumes probably only a quarter of what it produces and export three quarters in aluminium overseas!

    FSLR still hard to borrow (to short). Doubt this is a coincidence.
