+ Watch FSLR
on My Watchlist
The Company designs and manufactures solar modules using a proprietary thin film semiconductor technology.
Time for solar? Worth the bet, and this company is the only one turning profits.
industry growth, strong technology, stable balance sheet compared to competitors
Solar gets cheaper
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
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
The entire energy grid in this country is going to change. Renewable is here to stay, and FSLR is best in breed.
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
Dont count them out yet. 2014 is a rebuilding year.
Partly a speculative play based on how the market has acted in the past. FSLR has been in the game for 7 yrs now and has has time for the foundation to settle. They are slowly growing. The stock isn't crazy 2008 prices. Oil/Gas prices have been stable lately. Thus, keeping panic down. This play is merely getting in before the next oil/gas scare comes around, which you know is going to happen.
