Constructive is absolutely right on this one. The best part, though, is it’s a Chinese firm AND a solar power company. And it’s in a total tailspin, if you look at their technicals or a 3-month chart.

Annual sales declining, and NEGATIVE earnings per share of about $44 per share in 2015. Cash balance is showing a very anemic ~$140MM remaining. Things seem to have gotten worse since they now have more than $1 BILLION in debt due in the next 12 months. I think there’s a decent chance they might reverse split and try to issue shares to get rid of massive debt load. I have no idea who in the world would want to risk that kind of money here, though. I find it highly unlikely they can find a *gack* “investor” to continue to subsidize their losses. I am leaning towards bankruptcy here too, but they may be able pull a rabbit out the hat.

Entertaining recent announcement:

“Yingli Green Energy forms special committee to assess the Company's operating and financial situation”

“The co announced that, in order to properly consider the Company's options with respect to and ultimately resolve the debt repayment issues faced by the Company's principal subsidiaries, the Company's board of directors has formed a special committee (the "Special Committee") comprised solely of independent directors to assess the Company's operating and financial situation and evaluate, develop and recommend one or more strategic alternatives and financing plans potentially available to the Company in order to improve its debt structure.”

Obviously, the special committee will have their backs against the wall since the firm is running very short of cash and has very few levers to pull to the right this sinking ship. This represents a very tempting real-life short opportunity for me. I am NOT suggesting anyone else short this with real money. Do your own research and do not rely on me.

This company just had a 10:1 reverse split and CAPS has not adjusted for it yet. Reverse splits signal trouble more often than not.
