July 20, 2018

Biggest name in North American market. Got nailed twice. First, during the crash. Then, because China went big into the solar panel market, at subsidized prices. There will be growth in sales, but price of solar panels will drop dramatically. If you’re willing to ride it out for the long term, this can do very well. But you’ll have to be patient. Potential for dramatic technological change in this area. Be a little bit cautious about the technology risk.

Solar sector has been in the doldrums. It is very subsidized, in particular by a lot of the European countries, and when they got into financial difficulties, a lot of the subsidies were pulled. This company has a big project coming on and have a strategy to increase their cost base. Probably not a good time to get in as it probably had a short squeeze that made the stock jump so dramatically.

90%+ of solar world panel producers use silicon. This company uses cadmium cellulite instead, which has allowed them to be the lowest cost producer. Stock is under pressure because with Chinese coming in, there is concern that silicon costs will become so low that it could hurt them. Good buy at this price.

Still the leader in solar energy and the lowest cost producer. Long-term it will continue to do exceptionally well. Trading at 16X earnings. Huge leverage to a rising equity market. Volatile.

Looks like there could be resistance at around $200. If you believe the market starts to have a decent year, a little above last year, this is worth $180-$200. If things really take off is probably a $300 stock. If you believe in solar, there is still upside in this.

This is probably the solar company with the best results. Has a relation with the price of oil in that if oil is low who needs solar? Last quarter, this company was still up year-over-year. Obviously they are gaining market share. Solar is one of the businesses that an investor should be in in the future. Since the market has had a huge run, he would not buy anything aggressively today.

Set out a mandate to be the lowest cost producer of solar panels. Don't use silicon technology but use thin film technology instead. Essentially take a piece of glass and coat a very thin layer of solar material. Not as efficient, but much cheaper to produce. Cost per watt is the lowest in the industry.

If you like the solar space, some of the companies that you could consider are First Solar (FSLR-Q), a rise technology (APV-T) and Canadian Solar (CSIQ-Q).

PAST TOP PICK

April 18, 2008

(A Top Pick Nov 22/07. Up 34.7%.) Likes this one for the long-term. This is the long-term, going to survive, IBM, Apple of the solar industry. Wouldn't make it an overweight holding, but would put a little bit in your per photo.

One of the most expensive solar stocks. Will be the IBM, Dell or Mac in the solar space. In the most recent quarter they announced they will be able to produce solar cells at a cost of $1.15 a watt. As the polysilicon shortage unwinds itself, they will have an advantage.
