Top 10 Solar Stocks To Own Right Now

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) — Cyprus’ president said Friday that the bailed-out country will open casinos and bolster its tourism sector to get the economy going again.

Nicos Anastasiades unveiled a first batch of measures he said are designed to boost growth in an economy that is projected to shrink by 13 percent until 2015.

Anastasiades included casino openings among campaign pledges before his election in February.

He said Cyprus would fork out 21 million euros ($27.54 million) to partly subsidize salaries for 6,000 jobless people that will be hired in the tourism sector, give businesses tax breaks for hiring new workers and set up solar energy parks.

Young people will be granted state and church-owned land for cultivation. And those having homes or businesses seized because they’re unable to pay off loans would be able to stay on as renters, he said.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Hawkinvest]

    Yingli Green Energy (YGE) is one of the largest solar companies in China, and it recently announced that it expects to recognize an impairment charge of about $361 million and an impairment of goodwill for about $43 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. Yingli plans to announce fourth quarter and full year results for 2011 on February 29, 2012. It makes sense to wait for an update on the financial results from the company before making a significant investment. If the stock remains stable after earnings, it could be a positive sign that it has reached a bottom.

    This company has a debt load which concerns some investors, but it is posting smaller losses when compared to other solar companies. When the solar stocks were at a cyclical peak around December 2007, Yingli shares traded for about $38 per share. Now the stock can be bought for less than one-tenth of that price. The impairment charges this company plans to take is a sign that it is making tough choices and possibly positioning it for a future rebound.

     Yipes! A Chinese solar stock? Everyone knows that the market for solar cells has collapsed and that China’s solar sector is awash in unused capacity and desperate companies barely clinging to life. Exactly –everybody knows. So what does it take to move a stock like Yingli Green Energy (YGE)?

    It doesn’t take much. Some positive speculation that Yingli and competitor Trina Solar (TSL) are well-financed enough  to be among the survivors in the sector would do it. (Yingli can sustain the 2013 cash burn rate for four years, Credit Suisse calculates.) Yingli would also be helped by news of China’s State Council encouraging mergers and acquisitions (and maybe even a bankruptcy) in an effort to reduce capacity in the sector — and banning local government financing of the sort that has kept Suntech Power (STP) and LDK Solar (LDK) in business. There’s also a new, high-profile target for increased buying of solar equipment by China’s power companies. That last factor has been especially important to Yingli Green Energy, since the company is set to receive orders under the government-funded program.

    Shares of Yingli Green Energy have just about doubled from a Nov. 21 low of $1.28 to a Dec. 19 price of $2.44. But there’s room to run; the 52-week high is $6.27.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chuck]

    First Solar (FSLR) has been picked by J.P. Morgan as the worst company in this sector and it is recommended that stocks be sold in the short run. With the reduction in subsidies, First Solar is likely to see a reduction in the sale of modules (which constitutes the largest part of its revenue). Operating margins are expected to be lower than expectations due to lower module margins. The stock is currently trading at $46.11 and is expected to go south of $4 0. Earnings per share of $7.71 are expected to decrease to $5.13 by the end of 2012. The company has market capitalization of $3.99 billion.

    First Solar (FSLR) is a leading manufacturer of solar power modules, boasting great growth of both revenues and earnings … and profit margins of 27% in the latest quarter, very impressive for a manufacturer. The stock was a big winner for Cabot Market Letter in 2006 (we sold in March 2007) and like most stocks in the industry it’s spent the time since then cooling off. I think it’s cool enough now. First Solar was on the list three years ago, too.
