+ Watch FSLR
on My Watchlist
The Company designs and manufactures solar modules using a proprietary thin film semiconductor technology.
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.
Solar stocks are getting a lot of governmental support and the stock is cheap! People are starting to believe that solar is a real technology!
I like it here - hold for a year
Solar is expanding.
First Solar, Inc. designs, manufactures and sells solar electricno divTotal Debt / Equity 0.05Price Earnings 10.50Price/Sales 1.37Price/Book 1.12Price/Cash Flow 7.30
in the coming years solar will at least double
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.
Cow 90-100 target
It's making acquisitions, growing slowly but steadily. People will get more interested in solar in the future and FSLR will be there.
Leader in CdTe film panels, which are currently currently being adopted in many large scale photovoltaic generation stations across the globe.
Earnings that are on the decline, missing even lowered targets, stock price soon to follow.
It is incredibly cheap currently both in terms of price/book value and P/E ratio. The fact that it is still profitable despite it being a bad time to be manufacturing solar panels.
Uranium will overtake First Solar
Okay.... I know I might take a hit in the short term picking this stock, but I think the stock price has taken a ridiculous hammering considering the prospects ahead for this stock. I honestly cannot see alternative energy becoming less significant in the coming decades with prices of fossil fuels skyrocketing right in line with continued growing demand for energy. The management of first solar reminds me a lot of Amazon. They sacrifice earnings in the short term to build a better future for the company in the long term. With ROE near 12%, profit margins in the double digits, and inside ownership near 30%.... I say GO LONG!!! FOOL ON!!
Just relying on subsidies and US market protection.
