  • U.S. solar stocks rally strongly ahead of a Tuesday speech from Pres. Obama in which he's expected to outline plans to effectively double the amount of renewable energy created on public lands by 2020 (enough to power 6M homes), and to impose regulations of carbon dioxide output from U.S. power plans. First Solar (FSLR +7.6%), which received an upgrade and a bullish coverage launch yesterday, is the biggest winner, but SunEdison (SUNE +5.6%) and SunPower (SPWR +4.2%) are also doing well. [View news story]
    What amazes me is how uninformed both of you are ! I am building the largest solar power plant in the world. RIght now we are producing 275 MWac of clean renewable energy that will eliminate 240 MILLION METRIC TONS of emmissions from the environment.

    This project has not cost the tax payers one single penny. the DOE DOES NOT loan money to build solar projects, they guarantee the loans, so if a company is successful, everyone benefits. During this project we have employed more than 3500 workers, pumped MILLIONS into the local and State economy, and the energy costs are LOWER than conventional coal and gas plants.

    Quit whining and get your facts straight before you make stupid comments. People like you are what gives solar a bad name

  • Merrill joins Cantor Fitzgerald in upgrading First Solar (FSLR -3%). Though it still expects First Solar's earnings to decline over the next several years (!), and sees ongoing price pressure from Chinese rivals, it's pleased the company is getting rid of excess capacity, and likes its low valuation. However, Wunderlich is downgrading shares to Sell, predicting continued share loss due to the inadequacy of First Solar's panels for space-constrained deployments.  [View news story]
    Don't count them least they acknowledge the market has changed are a doing something about it. Give a little credit to the foresight of management to overcome. Change is not always pleasent, I have never seen anyone come out of a fight without a few scars
