    Canadian Solar (CSIQ +7.2%) has given back a chunk of the premarket gains it saw on a report CNOOC (CEO) is in talks to acquire the firm. Other Chinese solar names have given back most or all of their early gains: TSL -2.1%. YGE -2.9%. JASO +1.5%. HOKU +0.9%. Past remarks from the Chinese government have already led many to expect consolidation, and some fear a bit of M&A activity won't be enough to fix the solar industry's huge problems.
