    Recession-hit Spain is set to be the latest European country to slash solar subsidies: sources tell the WSJ the government will announce 10%-20% cuts as soon as June 21. Europe's share of global solar installations has already been rapidly declining, thanks to macro issues and subsidy cuts in Germany (Europe's largest market). Solar shares are rallying in spite of the news (TAN +3.2%). LDK +7.6%. SOL +8.1%. SPWR +4.7%YGE +5.3%. SUNE +3.9% in spite of getting started at Equalweight by Morgan Stanley. SolarCity (SCTY +5.8%) is up ahead of tomorrow's lockup expiration, after getting hammered last week.

    LDK Solar (LDK) -3.6% AH to $1.35 after announcing shareholders signed off on the sale of 25M shares to Fulai Investments for $1.03 apiece. The sale will only go a small way towards dealing with LDK's giant debt load. (PR) (bond default)

    Solar stocks see a bit of profit-taking after Goldman downgrades JA Solar (JASO -9.3%) and Trina (TSL -6%), and the EU officially announces Chinese module tariffs that will only total 11.8% for now, but could soar as high as 67.9% on Aug. 6 if a settlement isn't reached. Yingli (YGE -5.4%) states its tariff will rise to 37.3% on Aug. 6, which it claims is "the lowest rate" of all Chinese mobile vendors. Trina says its tariff will rise to 51.5%. LDK -5.2%. CSIQ -3.5%. JKS -3.2%. CSUN -4.1%. SOL -4.4%. FSLR -3.4%. CSIQ -3.5% in spite of its solar plant sales.

    2013's giant solar stock rally continues (TAN +3.9%) as the EU faces a backlash over Chinese tariff proposals, and Canadian Solar (CSIQ +15.2%) soundly beats Q1 estimates with the help of a 470 bps Q/Q increase in gross margin to 9.7%. Though CSIQ's opex would only have fallen 3% Y/Y if not for the reversal of a $30M arbitration award, it still fell 17% Q/Q (exc. one-time events) thanks to 25% Q/Q drop in selling expenses. Also: CSIQ is guiding for module shipments to rise to 380MW-410MW in Q2 from Q1's 340MW, and (like JA Solar) is seeing surging Japanese shipments - they rose 76% Q/Q in Q1, and made up 25% of total shipments. TSL +8.4%. JKS +4.6%. YGE +6.9%. LDK +4.8%. DQ +7%. SCTY +2.5%.

    Another driver for the run in U.S. solar stocks today is a big move in Chinese solar stocks overnight, particularly Hareon Solar Technology, which jumped to its 10% daily limit on speculation that the U.S. and China are seeking to resolve a dispute over trade in solar-energy equipment that could lead to soaring tariffs: JA Solar (JASO +5%), China Sunergy (CSUN +5.2%), Ascent Solar (ASTI +32%), Spire (SPIR +9.6%), Trina Solar (TSL +10.3%), Hanwha Solarone (HSOL +11.5%), Suntech Power (STP +20.5%), ReneSola (SOL +8.1%), LDK Solar (LDK +10.3%).

    Solar stocks took off in response to JA Solar's results yesterday, and they're surging premarket in response to Yingli's guidance hike today. Chalk it up to both heavy short interests, and growing optimism capacity cuts and rising non-European demand can put the troubled industry on more stable footing. Lux Research predicts solar's supply glut will evaporate, but not until 2015. TSL +9.1%. JASO +14.6%. LDK +9.8%. FSLR +1.6%. CSIQ +6.2%. JKS +6.5%. SOL +11.3%.

    JA Solar (JASO +34.4%) is now skying higher following its Q1 beat and full-year shipment guidance reiteration, and is providing fresh fuel for the colossal solar stock rally that started last fall (TAN +4.4%). TSL +13.3%. DQ +20%. LDK +9.9%. JKS +10.3%. SCTY +11.6%. SOL +9.4%. CSUN +8.9%. SPWR +4.9%. ASTI +9.4%. YGE +8.4%. CSIQ +6.6%. The fact 38% of JA's Q1 module shipments went to Japan (a market with higher ASPs/margins than China) is likely going over well with investors.

    SolarCity (SCTY +15.3%) won't take a breather. Shares are blasting off to new post-IPO highs a day after rallying on news of an expanded financing partnership with Goldman. "We hope [the deal] sends a signal that solar is a stable and reliable asset to invest in," CEO Lyndon Rive tells Bloomberg. Meanwhile, some Chinese solar names are up following a rally in Shanghai: YGE +4.1%. LDK +5.1%. SOL +6.1%. JASO +3.5%. CSIQ +2.5%.

    Solar stocks continue to surge (TAN +4.6%) following SunPower's strong analyst day guidance. A few more winners: DQ +19.8%. SCTY +4.3%. JASO +9.2%. CSUN +7.9%. YGE +6.8%. Chinese solar names could also be getting a lift from news bankrupt Suntech (STP +9.7%) has reached a new forbearance agreement with a majority of its convertible debtholders, under which the debtholders agree not to exercise their rights until June 28. Also: LDK (LDK +8%) has filed its 2012 20-F. (yesterday) (Monday)
