+ Watch FSLR
on My Watchlist
The Company designs and manufactures solar modules using a proprietary thin film semiconductor technology.
no longer the leading man
I like that this company isn't standing pat with what they have. They just plunged a huge chunk of change into more research and development to continue improving upon what they have to offer. Solar isn't my favorite type of stock, but this company has a nice market share in sunny California which continues to switch to solar more and more.
gas rising again, regardless of market reasons, will bring renewed interest in alternatives. First Solar is with those atop that heap
where apple goes for solar, other big guys will follow suite
First solar is doing a hug deal with apple that will bring in much revenue. The stock is bound to go up over a medium term length of a year or two.
Good timing - as soon as oil starts picking back up again it will go up.
Unwarranted sell-off due to steep drop in oil prices.
FSLR has been severely sold off by the market to the point where contrarian investors should be lining up for it. That along with a strong balance sheet and it's strong book of projects in the pipeline bode well for a sharp reversal in 2015. The key to it's long term success will be how effectively it can compete overseas in utility scale projects before the 30% tax credit in US runs out in 2017. They also have a significant opportunity in the US, for Industrial and Commercial rooftops. This should help offset lost revenues on their US Utility scale projects expected in 2017.
solar is oversold
I actually like solar and thing this is a good time to be buying with the recent oil sell off. Picked up shares at $55 and change
likely to tank
I expect at least a point a week from this stock, for the next five years.
The entire energy grid in this country is going to change. Renewable is here to stay, and FSLR is best in breed.
Positive: - Good management - Long term growth business - Close to book value, almost no debt, lots of cash on hand Negative: - Tends to become a commodity business - Lots of political infuences regarding subsidies in the short run - Highly cyclical - Insiders are dumping the stock Category: R13BR
Business mainly concentrated in North America. No indication of costs coming down. Senior management emptying shares and reloading at shareholder's cost.
Stock was beaten down, has a lot of potential, believe that in the future almost everything will utilize solar energy.
With new tech breakthroughs, solar power's day may finally be here for real.
I like it here - hold for a year
Low P/E should make it a tempting buy
