TOP PICK
First Solar Inc.

He recently bought it. Are a domestic producer of solar panel in the U.S. so tariffs protect it and subsidies help it. They have a two-year backlog of orders.

BUY
First Solar Inc.

Up 54% in May, the S&P's top performer. His favourite solar play because it's profitable and the largest US manufacturer with lots of exposure in industrial-scale projects. They reported a monster earnings beat, but were greatly help by Biden announcing tariffs of China's solar cells. This stock has more room to run.

TOP PICK
First Solar Inc.
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly

As the western hemisphere's largest solar module manufacturer, we reiterate FSLR as a TOP PICK.  Analysts expect a 400% cash flow expansion over the year, when it reports in May.  It trades at 24x earnings and 3x book value.  We recommend maintaining the stop at $140, looking to achieve $222 -- upside potential of 21%.  Yield 0%

TRADE
First Solar Inc.

It reports Tuesday. Is a rare solar panel company that's making money. Their business lies in the commercial, not residential side of the industry (which relies more on interest rates). A trade.

We reiterate this US domestic producer of solar panels as a TOP PICK.  The company is benefitting from $700 million tax credit incentives, allowing cash reserves to continue to grow.  It trades at 13x forward earnings and under 3x book value.  We recommend trailing up the stop (from $129) to $140, looking to achieve $228 -- upside potential over 30%.  Yield 0%

Recently reported earnings for FSLR easily exceeded analyst expectations, thanks to a 27% increase in revenues.  Total US solar installs are up 20% on the year and analysts expect a bigger year of growth ahead in the industry.  FSLR trades at 12x forward earnings and under 3x book value.  We recommend placing a stop-loss at $129, looking to achieve $234 -- upside potential of 46%.  Yield 0%

BUY ON WEAKNESS
First Solar Inc.

One of the few solar stocks that makes money. Have suffered from higher costs in raw materials and shipping, so reported a loss last year. This year, they are guiding for a high $7-8 EPS and $13 EPS in 2024. Trades at a cheap 12x 2024 PE. They sell to commercial customers much more than homeowners, so is less exposed to higher rates. Demand for products is high with orders through 2026. They make a superior product, using 98% fewer semi materials than their peers, therefore cheaper to produce. Shares have pulled back, so attractive.

We reiterate this solar module manufacturer as a TOP PICK.  As a US manufacturer, it is a major beneficiary of the Inflation Reduction Act tax incentives.  It has a growing order backlog.  We like that cash reserves are building while the company retires debt.  We continue to recommend a stop-loss at $171, looking to achieve $224 -- upside potential of 21%.  Yield 0%

TOP PICK
First Solar Inc.
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly

We reiterate this international manufacturer of solar power panels.  Although latest earnings did not meet analyst expectations, things are still solid.  Sales back logs show they are sold out of product until into 2026 -- this will bring steady revenue.  Cash reserves are growing and debt is being reduced.  We recommend keeping the stop-loss at $168, looking to achieve $214 -- upside potential of 21% from here.  Yield 0%
