    Jefferies warns that the U.S. decision to set a tariff on imported solar panels shouldn't be lighting a fire under solar stocks such as JA Solar (JASO +3.8%), Yingli Green Energy (YGE +13.9%), Trina Solar (TSL +7.9%), and Suntech Power (STP +9.9%). Analysts with the firm note that a more significant ruling on anti-dumping charges is not set to be released until May 17.

    Chinese solar stocks fly off of the news that the U.S. will slap tariffs on solar panels imported from China at a lower rate than was expected. The tariffs - set at 2.9% to 4.73% - are a reaction to subsidies the U.S. government says China gave to manufacturers. Advancers: STP +7.4%, JASO +1.7%, TSL +6.2%, YGE +12.6%.

    Though its solar policies are facing close scrutiny from the U.S. ITC, a Chinese government agency has set ambitious targets for the development of the local solar industry. By 2015, it wants one local firm to have annual revenues north of $16B, and 3-5 firms to have revenues above $8B. Consider this more evidence the government may soon "encourage" weaker solar vendors to merge with stronger ones. (also)

    The solar sector looks set for a bloody day after Deutsche Bank and Citibank issue negative comments (previous) on the industry highlighted by the bombshell that Germany subsidy cuts might be even steeper than originally forecast. JA Solar (JASO) -3.9%, LDK Solar (LDK) -2.5%, and JinkoSolar (JKS) -2.6% have joined the cavalcade of solar names in the red in premarket trading.

    Solar shares are rising, as CEOs from Suntech (STP +2.8%) and Trina Solar (TSL +4%) say China may double its installations of solar panels this year, absorbing excess production that have depressed prices and margins. Maxim analyst Aaron Crew says Chinese demand is "hopping," adding "China could surpass Germany" as the world’s largest solar market. FSLR +5.2%, JASO +3.4%, SPWR +3%.

    A Commerce Department investigation into the business practices of Chinese solar firms has unsurprisingly found many to be selling their products below cost. Less clear is whether such pricing is the result of anti-competitive behavior, or simply an attempt to unload inventory in the face of oversupply and crashing prices. Regardless, the findings could pave the way for anti-dumping tariffs to be imposed.
