First Solar (FSLR +2.9%) is trekking higher following the U.S. government's official imposition of anti-dumping tariffs against Chinese solar vendors, and LDK Solar (LDK -2.9%) and Suntech (STP -2.7%) are doing the opposite. The Chinese government was quick to denounce the tariffs, which are accompanied by countervailing duties of 15%-16%. But some U.S. manufacturers are disappointed the duties don't cover Chinese solar modules made with non-Chinese cells.
