MEMC's (WFR -13.4%) soft guidance and a report the Wuxi, China government will take control of Suntech (STP -23.6%) ignited a solar selloff (TAN -5%). LDK (LDK -12.7%), whose financial position is arguably only a little better than Suntech's, was especially hard-hit, but ReneSola (SOL -5.3%), Yingli (YGE -3.4%), Trina (TSL -3.5%), SunPower (SPWR -2.7%), and First Solar (FSLR -2%) also saw losses.

    A typical over-reactive market for solar industry. Nothing more! It will back up soon...

    I think that this was a widely anticipated event and will prove positive for the solar industry in the near future.

    Solyndra was the tip of the iceberg.

    Less competition = good news. Let the fittest win.

    A long overdue correction in some of these solar high-fliers. Triple-digit gains in three months for stocks like RSOL, DQ and SPWR is not sustainable. Hopefully a sawtooth in what should be a painful, but ultimately steadily rising sector.
