Solar Power Round up: FLSR is dying a slow death... Is Solar Dead as well?



June 09, 2008 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: AMAT

Massive insider selling at FSLR has Jim Cramer bailing on his FSLR stock pick he kept telling people to buy since months and months ago.

If FSLR is dying a slow death due in part to it's bloated P/E Ratio and some problems under investigation.....  Then should everyone bail out on Solar Energy Companies?

Here's a round up of Solar Power Companies today starting with the Solar Power Index Fund:

TAN (Index Fund):  $26.93  down over 3% of it's Friday value.
SOLF:  $19.59  down nearling 10% of it's Friday value.
STP:    $39.18  down nearly 3% of it's Friday value.
ESLR:  $9.39   down nearly %4.5 of it's Friday value.
SPWR:  $76.68 down nearling %3.5 of it's Friday value.

WOW!   What a sector!!!!   Plummeting into the ground..... There's no hope..... no future for Solar....Abandon ship!  Abandon ship!!!    Must hop on board the WIND energy FAD.... or the HYDRO FAD... OR dump all of my money into DAR for the Bioenergy/ ethynol FAD!!

But that's before....ALAS..... a *hero* emerges from out of the pile!:

AMAT (Applied Materials):   Up .21% from it's Friday value!!

Yaaaaay!  Applied Materials to the rescue!!!  Here it comes to save the day!  Solar Power is here to stay! 

Give me an A.....give me a B...Give me a U.....Give me a D...give me another A....give me an H...give me another B......give me an I...

What does that spell?   ABU DHABI!!!!
AMAT is poised to become the Microsoft of Solar Energy.   Al eyes will be fixated on Applied Materials in their upcoming conference on how to make solar power cheaper per wattage.

I wonder about SOLAR myself. I am planning to hold it until OBAMA gets elected. It shoud get in demand again then.

On the AMAT subject, by the looks of its chart, it will go up.

According to Ray Kurzweil, solar energy is increasing exponentially in price/preformance. Right now we have enough technology to supply 1% of the world energy needs with solar (and wind) power. If that doubles 7 times (which it has done already to get to 1%) we could eliminate the need for fossile fuels by harnessing 1/10,000 of the sunlight that hits the earth.

Solar's gotta find a better way than Silicon.

Check out this article on Silicon:

I plan (tomorrow) to go over this article in HUGE detail.
It's probably why I refuse to invest in any "Pure" Solar Company no matter what.
