  • Solar Panels: Let's Lose This Competition [View article]
    One day it will become clear to everybody that all you have to do in order to power your AC is to buy some solar panels. Eventually warehouses and factories will catch on to that, parking structures will catch on and you could even line the freeways. This would be a energy revolution which is affordable now and once it catches on, nobody will be able to stop it.

  • China's Giant Catch-22 [View article]
    I wouldn't look at that money as a loan from china, its more like a ticket that they bought in order to export products to the US dutyfree pretty much. They needed that ticket more than anything.

    By the time you realise that electing a new president will never change anything fundamental in Washington it will be too late. You think Romney will make a difference? Funny...

  • China's Giant Catch-22 [View article]
    Calling the chinese government inexperienced and corrupt in comparison to the US government is slightly bold I would say.

    I wish it was still that easy to simply wave the US Flag (most likely made in china) and blow the "we are better because we are americans" horn, .... but this ship has sailed, I am afraid.

  • China's Giant Catch-22 [View article]
    There are several problems with this article. If the RMB goes down in value it will bring more manufacturing to china and therefore also more foreign investment. All that foreign investment is buying in china is cheap labor and when the RMB goes down then the cheap labor gets even cheaper. Keeping the workers busy in china is the most important task and the most dangerous threat to that is the RMB going up. The RMB going down moderately is no problem for the chinese government.

  • As corn prices explode in the face of the worst drought in over a half century, ethanol, once touted as the homegrown, eco-friendly replacement for foreign oil, is fast becoming the new product everyone loves to hate. The fact is however, we've come to rely on the corn-based fuel's high octane level as a boost to the sub-grade gasoline currently being churned out of our nation's refineries. The crisis leaves us with two tough choices: higher gas prices, or higher food prices.  [View news story]
    How about reducing the large amounts of cornbased junkfoods that cost us billions in the disease industry.

  • Chinese Solar To Rule The World With Massive Chinese Stimulus [View article]
    TSL, YGE, 2 years. There you go.
    I dont think they will go bankrupt which means they will go up.

    Even my brother (lives in Austria, not exactly the sunniest place) just installed a bunch of solar on his roof and is now collecting money for the electricity he produces and he is the type who calculates extremely cautiously. There are industries in small rural vilages in austria that derive their energy needs during the day from solar power and here in sunny California we still use the grid for even AC etc.!! Unbelievable, its a matter of time.

    He says the set up is working extremely well btw.

    My logic tells me that with the panel prices as they are there will be a solar explosion sometime within the next 5 years in the sunnier parts of the globe. Of course one can not guarantee which panel producer will be the big winner but like I said I don't think TSL and YGE are gonna go under so there is my bet.

  • Trina Solar (TSL +0.6%) hovers in the green despite missing Q1 estimates earlier this morning. Profit swung to a wider-than-expected loss as margins were squeezed, falling to 5.8% from 27.5% as lower selling costs and provisions for anti- dumping duties hit bottom line performance.  [View news story]

  • Spanish PM Mariano Rajoy rejects the notion that the nation's banks should go cap in hand to the EU bailout fund, an idea that Francois Hollande apparently floated, although Rajoy is skeptical that he did. Another report says Spain turned down EU pressure to accept an IMF credit line to help strengthen the banks.  [View news story]
    ... the banks have been buying up greedy governments, shortsighted politicians and political parties lacking directions for hundred of years now, some would say even longer, its time to change that before some ridiculous dictator gets elected once again based on the simple promise of aggression.

    so you guys are suggesting that all the countries should simply borrow more and more money and pay more and more interest to the central banks and the Banks who are buying government notes? Wouldn't it be smarter to realize that this direction can not be maintained, interest payments can not be produced and something needs to change in the monetary system?
    I suggest that should happen before we have a civil war on our hands.

  • Facebook's (FB +3%) weaker-than-expected debut is leading to a massive selloff in Facebook-related plays, and (to a lesser extent) Internet stocks in general. ZNGA -13.3%. RENN -9.4%. GSVC -12.4%. SVVC -18.6%. P -6%. GRPN -4.9%. YELP -4.4%. QPSA -5.1%. Facebook is now changing hands at $39.12.  [View news story]
    It's a tech stock without any tech just herds of humans and we all know that herd mentality can change at will.

  • Yingli Green Energy (YGE -13%), clobbered today on news of the U.S. government's imposition of anti-dumping tariffs on Chinese solar firms, rises 2.9% AH after stating its tariff rate will be 31.2%, at the low end of a 31%-250% range. Yingli adds it will continue to "aggressively defend [itself]", and notes a final decision on the tariffs remains to be made by the Commerce department and ITC (it's due before the end of 2012).  [View news story]
    Pretty aggressive measure to keep the bottom from falling out on the domestic solar producers but FSLR is still doomed unless it comes up with new technology which this strategy will give it time to possibly develop.

  • Burned By Solar [View article]
    How many solar panels could have been installed in the US if you would take only half the cost of the war in Iraq? Half, because we obviously do need oil at this point but we could have gotten that half from better sources than by killing our soldiers and the people of Iraq and rampage a country an bankrupt our own along the way.

    It always amazes me when people talk about Oil being not subsidized by the government while the planet is on fire from battles over it.

    I think the point you are also missing is that solar energy as a producer of energy is not only to be seen as something to make money with in comparison to a regular energy bill of 2012. Solar has to be seen as a energy source for the future which we humans on planet earth desperately need in order to keep feeding our ever increasing needs for energy on this planet. This is not about to make a profit necessarily , this is about viable sources of energy to keep our economy and lives going.
