First Solar (FSLR +23.8%) guides on its analyst day for 2013 revenue of $3.8B-$4B and EPS of $4-$4.50, far above a consensus of $3.15B and $3.46. Shares have spiked higher on the news, and were shortly halted due to volatility. Other solar names are also surging: SPWR +9.8%. TSL +8.7%. DQ +12.3%. STP +36.1%. LDK +15%. JKS +15.4%. WFR +7.5%. JASO +6.6%. (previous) Update (1:56): First Solar shares are now up 48.2%, and have been halted again. CNNMoney's Paul R. La Monica notes over 1/3 of the float is shorted. "Can you say squeeze?"

    Maybe the government can start decreasing the subsidy for the panels.

    WOW! these shares just got annihilated only a few months ago. i still am "theologically addicted" to the solar space...i think we're just a few months or maybe a year away before "the breakthrough" hits consumer shelves. (20% efficiency for the consumer to buy at Home Depot/Lowes/etc. roof top/hood top solar for your car, truck or SUV, etc..) if zero fuel cars become "the answer" then i really think there is no going back on all electric vehicles. same goes for houses that no longer need the grid to buy off of but instead sell into. the cost reduction on such a "distributed system" would be staggering (most industrial, commercial and government--especially including schools-- usage is done while the sun is shining.) throw in some hydro power for the evening load and "presto"--the already crushed demand for electricity will be forever changed for the better.

    As a FSLR owner that was down huge but sold for a small profit today at the close... i'll take it...
    Will I get back in if it sells off again? Sure but with nat gas & coal being so damn abundant & cheap it will have to be at lower levels.
