(Top Pick Aug 26/11, Down 79.18%) Did a massive acquisition that didn’t work out. Should be good opportunities for lead free paint in Europe next year. It will still be tough sledding for the company, which is why he sold it 8 months ago for a 28% loss.

He is still short the stock. The problem with this company is the balance sheet. Made a major acquisition of some of the raw materials that go into the solar supply chain but took on a significant amount of debt. Solar industry has been in serious decline.

One of the best companies in this sector. Produce the product that goes into solar panels. Made close to 30% net margin after taxes last quarter. Extremely well run. Because energy prices have come down, and no one can finance new projects demand for solar panels has dropped dramatically. Sold his holdings because of the risk for the next few quarters.

Key supplier to First Solar (FSLR-Q) for the thin-film version of the solar panel. Doesn't use sand, but cadmium telluride instead, which is rare and hard to come by. Have a virtual monopoly on this.

Make something like 30% net margins after tax. Short term negative is that finance has shut down for solar panels. Demand for solar panels is down substantially for 3rd quarter. Company could be affected in the short-term. Outstanding company for the long-term.
