+ Watch FSLR
on My Watchlist
The Company designs and manufactures solar modules using a proprietary thin film semiconductor technology.
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
Buy low, sell high. These solar plays are challenging. What was great with oil > $80 may become marginal at best as oil continues to move lower. With $40 oil, America takes a huge hit on many fronts, especially shale oil and alternative energy. I like the price today. I think we beat the index by at least 10% in the next couple months. Unless oil goes to $20.
Not a pitch, just personal notes. Tracking a "lemming" pick
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
Solar is expanding.
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.
Above average growth potential + solid financials
FSLR is not just a rooftop leasing company or a panel installation company. It actually builds power plants that ultimately will compete with nuclear and coal-powered plants. As everyone knows, solar energy is a new technology that is making a break-through.
