First Solar (FSLR +3.8%) adds to yesterday's gains on news it has won a contract to build a 13MW solar plant for the Dubai Electric and Water Authority. The project is set to be finished by Oct. '13, and could pave the way for future deals: Dubai has begun work on a solar park it hopes will eventually produce 1GW of electricity.

  • FSLR will probably be attacked by Acxiom analyst again. They keep repeating same story and stock starts down.
    The new contracts the past week should help support price. Schwab gives it a Buy composite rating, am a buyer at least while shorts cover.

  • Are you seriously comparing Schwab to Gordon Johnson? Amazing. Instead of bashing Johnson, you should consider his record on that stock/sector which has been the best of anyone. His analysis has been second to none and if you had listened to him you would have made a bundle instead of whining about him "attacking" a company that makes mediocre products.

  • Johnson has been wrong many times..Even on AAPL. I am not attacking anyone. Only stating what has happened several times the past few months. The analyst appeared on FOX and then again on Bloomberg almost immediately after FSLR broke $23 and $24.
    Sorry if I offended you... but not sure how.
    FSLR has a great deal od recent news to support it, a good PE, and ratings opn a composite basis by Shwab which was selected the past year as second in stock selection.

  • FSLR is presently up 8% for the day and gaining momentum. Firms like AX... will need to cover their shorts which may move it up further.
    The stock has moved up since the tariffs were imposed on China and the company has won huge contracts.
