    Solar stocks are off sharply in early trading (TAN -3.7%). Concerns about Europe and China could be weighing, or it could just be that the Street continues to grow more pessimistic following last week's earnings reports (I, II). YGE -9.5%. SPWR -7.8%. LDK -7.6%. FSLR -6.4%. JASO -10%.

    The entire solar sector is taking a beating from First Solar's (FSLR -18.6%) woes and a string of weak earnings reports from China Sunergy (CSUN -7.5%), JA Solar (JASO -1%) and Yingli Green (YGE -10.8%). ThinkEquity cuts YGE to Sell based on “persistent losses," setting a price target of $1; Maxim warns of a "mounting” cash drain and net debt that “has reached dangerous heights."

    Angela Merkel says she wants to see talks between the EC and Chinese authorities to prevent the implementing of solar anti-dumping tariffs similar to the ones imposed in the U.S. The EU's need for Chinese imports and debt purchases could lead it to take a softer line than the U.S., something that would go over well with struggling Chinese solar module vendors who have delivered one awful earnings report after another.

    More on JA Solar's Q2: Poor results blamed on "unfavorable pricing environment" (many solar firms can sympathize). Gross margin edged higher to 4.8% from Q1's 2.1%, but still remains at depressed levels. Modules made up 60% of revenue and 55% of shipments (record highs). Company now expects 2012 cell/module shipments of 1.5GW-1.8GW, below prior guidance of 1.8GW-2GW. Expects Q3 shipments of 350MW-370MW, below Q2's 418MW. JASO -9.4%. (PR)

    JA Solar (JASO -4.8%) has sold off to the $1 range. Possibly playing a role is news that the company, which (like many solar manufacturers) has been bleeding cash, will be taking part in a $1.3B Japanese project to develop solar power plants in the country. JA's solar panels, along with those of South Korea's LS Industrial, will be used to build the plants.

    The reported takeover of insolvent German solar player Q-Cells by South Korea's Hanwha Chemical could spark more mergers in the sector, 24/7's Jon Ogg writes: "The only way these companies can ultimately make it is to band together to fend off Chinese solar dumping and margin pressures as government subsidies are ending."

    China's National Energy Administration increases its 2015 target for solar power capacity by 40% to 21 (GW) as lower costs and regulation helping to fuel growth in the sector. Stocks likely to benefit include Suntech Power (STP), LDK, ReneSola (SOL), JA Solar (JASO) and Yingli (YGE).

    Suntech (STP -13.4%) makes new all-time lows after stating it could be the victim of a massive fraud. Suntech was guaranteed €560 ($692M) worth of German government bonds by asset management firm GSF Capital as collateral for a €540M ($662M) investment in a fund that invested in private companies developing solar projects. However, the company now believes the bonds "may not have existed." YGE -11.2%. CSIQ -7.3%. JASO -7.2%. TSL -6.7% after warning.

    European solar makers are set to launch a complaint with the European Commission accusing China’s solar panel makers of selling solar PV cells below cost in the EU, more critical for China’s solar makers than U.S. action because of so many more EU solar installations than in the U.S. Chinese solar makers sink: YGE -11%, LDK -4.6%, TSL -5.5%, STP -2.5%, JASO -3.8%, JKS -4%.

    Piper is downgrading four solar names - LDK Solar (LDK -4.4%), Trina Solar (TSL -5%), Yingli (YGE -3.2%), and JA Solar (JASO -4.5%), while upgrading two others - Canadian Solar (CSIQ +1.4%) and SunPower (SPWR +0.2%). The downgrades relate to worries about pricing and margins, though LDK's high debt load is also discussed. The CSIQ and SPWR upgrades stem from optimism about the companies' project installation and U.S. residential ops, respectively.
