Die Deutsche und die Ratings; warum die ihr Rating bei FSLR so krass zurückgenommen haben steht hier.

Bei positiven Ueberraschungen, man nennt es dann 'über den Erwartungen der Analysten' kann man dann den Kurs wieder hochfahren, besonders, wenn man selber dabei ist.

Ich wüsste gerne, was First Solar dazu meint. Wie schaut es wirklich aus?

Krass kann man das nennen, was dieser Analyst hier von sich gibt, ja. Man wird sehen, was die FSLR auf den Tisch legt am 2. August. Allzuviel würde ich nicht drauf geben, wenn eine Bank so unsorgfältig mit Ratings agiert. Aber schau die doch mal an. Der Kurs von der Deutschen jetzt und wo die mal standen (2007). Investmentbanking hat es in sich, da verdient man doch gerne was dazu, wie auch immer, sonst wird es schlimmer. Deren Chart schlägt ja noch unsere CS.

Nach der Gewinnwarnung und dem Klöhnen von FSLR könnte man es gelegentlich schon wieder wagen hier zu traden. Ich erinnere mich noch an meinen untersten Preis den ich da je zahlte, der war um 27.- rum. Ist aber einige Zeit her.

Man sollte sich hier auch nicht erschrecken lassen von diversen Schreibelingen, die nun die Solarbranche/erneuerbare Energien von den Neigungen und Ideen von Titelgewinnern in USA abhängig machen. Die kennt man ja noch nicht wirklich.

Im Jahr 2008/9 war die Solarbranche ein Boom und FSLR auf Höchst. Wobei man damals mit wesentlich höheren Kursen rechnete aufgrund auch von höheren Ratings.

Momentan überschlägt man sich hier vor lauter produktiver Aktivität.

Wie wärs, wenn GS aufgrund ihrer euphorischen 'Ratings' auch zwischendurch mal etwas Kurspflege betreiben würde/kaufen. Das Gegenteil kennt man ja bereits seit geraumer Zeit.

Zu traden gab es hier in letzter Zeit wohl kaum was.

First Solar to Review Alternatives for the Sale of Its Interests in 8point3 Energy Partners

 

  • Seeks to fully align resources and capital in support of transition to Series 6 offering
  • Remains firmly committed to utility-scale project development business

TEMPE, Ariz.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- First Solar, Inc. (Nasdaq: FSLR) announced today that it, working together with its financial and legal advisors, is reviewing alternatives for the sale of its interests in 8point3 Energy Partners. First Solar will coordinate this review with its partner SunPower.

In recent months, First Solar has taken actions to strategically align the company's resources and capital in support of its transition to its new Series 6 product offering.

As a continuation of these efforts, First Solar is exploring options for the sale of its interests in 8point3 in order to refocus resources on Series 6 objectives and allow for faster recycling of systems business capital. This capital would support the planned transition to Series 6 production and provide additional funding for the expected deployment of multiple gigawatts of Series 6 capacity over the next several years. First Solar intends to accelerate the return of capital from its systems business by selling projects earlier in the construction phase. This includes the California Flats and Cuyama projects, which have been formally offered to 8point3. If 8point3 is unable to acquire these projects, First Solar expects to sell these projects to third parties.

"We remain committed to developing, constructing and selling utility-scale solar power plants," said Mark Widmar, CEO of First Solar. "Series 6 has the potential to be a transformational product and provide attractive returns to our shareholders. As we accelerate the cash conversion cycle from our systems business, we will further enable this important transition in our business. We want to thank SunPower for their partnership in forming 8point3, which has a portfolio of high quality solar assets and proven operating performance. We look forward to working cooperatively with them through this process."

The consideration of a potential sale of its interests in 8point3 by First Solar is at a preliminary stage and may not result in any transaction being proposed or, even if proposed, consummated. First Solar does not intend to disclose further developments with respect to this evaluation process except to the extent a specific course of action is approved, the process is concluded or it is required by law or otherwise deemed appropriate. The First Solar-appointed directors and officers of the general partner of 8point3 Energy Partners LP remain committed to prudently managing 8point3 throughout this evaluation process.

First Solar shares fall as production woes weigh on results

Name Letzter Veränderung
FIRST SOLAR ORD 53.67

-0.37 (-0.68 Wacko

July 26 (Reuters) - Shares of First Solar Inc fell 6 percent on Thursday after the U.S. solar company reported a surprise quarterly loss and lower-than-expected revenue due to production challenges in its next-generation panel technology.

The company also lowered its gross margin forecast for the year, but stood by its earnings outlook.

First Solar lost $48.5 million, or 46 cents per share, during the second quarter, compared with earnings of $51.9 million, or 50 cents per share, in the same period a year ago. Wall Street analysts had been expecting earnings of 2 cents a share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Revenue was $309 million, far lower than analysts' average forecast of $503.1 million.

First Solar has been moving to ramp up manufacturing of its so-called Series 6 panels at factories in Ohio, Malaysia and Vietnam. The impact of production challenges is expected to be short term, executives said on a conference call with analysts.

First Solar has benefited from having a technology that is not subject to the 30 percent tariffs imposed by President Donald Trump on solar imports earlier this year. Its panels are made from cadmium telluride, while the tariffs apply only to traditional silicon solar products.

The company's Series 6 product, which is low in cost and more efficient at generating power than its previous products, will be a competitive advantage in the industry, Chief Executive Mark Widmar said on the conference call.

He said changes to China's solar incentive policies had caused "an almost immediate collapse in pricing across the crystalline silicon supply chain" that would lead to greater industry competition but lower solar power prices for customers.

First Solar shares were down 6.3 percent at $50.30 in after-hours trading after closing at $53.67 on the Nasdaq.

First Solar 'could surge on good news,' upgraded to Buy at BAML

Apr. 18, 2018 7:55 AM ET|By: , SA News Editor

First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR) +3.2% premarket after BofA Merrill Lynch upgrades shares to Buy from Neutral with an $83 price target, raised from $75, saying "shares have been stuck but could surge on good news."

BAML's Julien Dumoulin-Smith sees Chinese solar demand growing in 2018, “holding up the global panel pricing environment yet again," as well as a draft and potential release of safe harbor language for construction latitude around the Solar Investment Tax Credit bringing “long-term stability to solar deployments."

“Import tariff exemptions appear less likely, also firming domestic pricing," Dumoulin-Smith writes.

Vectren Selects Partner, Announces Location for 50 Megawatts of Renewable Energy in Southwestern Indiana

March 13, 2018 at 9:30 AM EDT

-Vectren chooses Spencer County for solar array

EVANSVILLE, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar. 13, 2018-- Today, Vectren Energy Delivery of Indiana (Vectren) and First Solar, Inc. (Nasdaq: FSLR) announced that Vectren has selected First Solar to build the 50-megawatt (MW) solar array outlined last month as part of Vectren’s long-term electric generation transition plan.

During the past few months, Vectren has been working with Orion Renewable Power Resources, LLC, a joint venture between Orion Renewable Energy Group and MAP®Renewable Energy, to select, secure and eventually develop the Troy, Ind. property.

The solar array will be situated on approximately 300 acres and will consist of about 150,000 solar panels. The array will be mounted on a single-axis tracking system, which enables the panels to automatically pivot to enhance energy generation as the sun’s rays move across the surface of the Earth. The facility, which should be fully operational in the fall of 2020, is expected to generate enough power to meet the needs of more than 11,000 households per year.

“This significant renewable resource will be connected to our system to serve our local customers,” said Carl Chapman, chairman, president and CEO of Vectren. “We are confident First Solar and Orion are the right partners for this scale of a project, which will bring one of the largest single-sited solar farms in the Midwest to southern Indiana.”

Construction will begin after the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission authorizes the project; a decision is expected in the first half 2019. The initial construction phase will require establishing a sub-station to interconnect with Vectren’s power grid and will begin immediately upon regulatory approval. The construction of the solar array will begin in mid-late 2019.

“First Solar’s expertise in design and construction of solar power plants aligns perfectly with Vectren’s Smart Energy Future strategy. Using our high performance Series 6 thin film modules and a plant design approach tailored to utility ownership values, we will contribute significantly to Vectren’s commitment to deliver clean, reliable and reasonably-priced energy to its customers,” said Eran Mahrer, Vice President – Markets, Origination and Government Affairs for First Solar. “It is exciting to be a part of enabling utility scale solar in Indiana.”

During construction, the project will provide up to 250 jobs, many of which will be union labor.

“Orion wishes to thank the landowners, the Spencer County Council, and the Lincolnland Economic Development Corporation for their support of the project,” said Tim Lasocki, Vice President, Origination and Finance for Orion. “We are pleased to be working with Vectren and First Solar to create a construction-ready project for utility ownership.”

FSLR / Bin zufällig auf diesen

Bin zufällig auf diesen Presse-Artikel gestossen. Scheint, ihr liegt richtig. Wenn das Q4 nun auch nicht der Renner war, die Begründungen wurden ja geliefert, so sind die Prognosen doch erfrischend, sofern man etwas verdienen will. Arbeitsplätze werden auch wieder geschaffen. Nun, es könnte sich lohnen raufzutraden.

Ja, das Q4 ist hier stets am schwächsten. Möglicherweise geht es mit dem Kurs mal über 75.-. Allerdings dünkt mich, dass dort stets absichtlich abgeblockt wird. Man kann es aber versuchen, wem es noch nicht verleidet ist. Einige $ lagen ja auch beim letzten Trade schon drin. Ob sich die  mal wieder erholen, resp. einen anständigen Kurs erreichen (Chart) wird wohl eine wirtschaftspolitische Frage sein (die Zukunft der Kinder der Kinder wird denen aber bestimmt voll am A...vorbei gehen, mehr Dreck ist geil) man vergesse aber auch nicht die Hedger.

Net sales are now expected in a range of $2.45 to $2.65 billion, revised from prior guidance of $2.3 to $2.5 billion.

The company reported a fourth-quarter GAAP loss per share of $4.14. The results included charges of $408 million, or $3.91 per share, from U.S. tax reform. Non-GAAP loss per share was $0.25, for the fourth quarter. Net sales for the fourth quarter were $339 million. The company said its fourth quarter net sales were slightly lower than guidance as a result of certain foreign project sales that are now expected to be recognized in 2018.

Einverstanden, obwohl hier heute einige ein Gewinnchen mitgenommen haben, denke ich, es geht doch da endlich wieder aufwärts, sonst schlafen einem die Füsse ein, wenn man hier traden möchte und mehr als ein Up von nur mal kurz $5.- erwartet. Nun aber, die sind entweder weg nun oder steigen wieder ein. Ich schaue den Chart an und sehe ein Preisziel. Wenn ich sechs Jahre retour schaue, na ist wohl nicht ganz 100.-. Aber 80.- balde mal, das könnte schon gut drinliegen. Wir nehmen auch mehr. Dann bin ich noch gespannt wie das hier ausgeht:  WinkSmileDirol

https://www.benzinga.com/media/cnbc/18/01/11023379/mike-khouw-sees-unusual-options-activity-in-first-solar

On CNBC's "Options Action", Mike Khouw said First Solar, Inc. FSLR 4.32% saw four times the average daily call options volume Thursday. He added that options traders were buying the January 75 calls in the name.

Around 4,000 contracts were traded during the session and they paid $2 for them. The trade breaks even at $77 or 0.96 percent above the current stock price. Khouw explained that buyers could be expecting that President Trump is going to announce protectionist policies for the solar industry next week.

Ja wirklich, die sind drüber,

Ja wirklich, die sind drüber, 70.- ist Vergangenheit, FSLR ist ausgebrochen. Haben sogar andere bemerkt. Die Prognosen bei der letzten Zahlenpräsentation waren ja ok. So kann man hier mal wieder was wagen, so man will und gespannt sein, was die Zahlen im Februar bringen.

Trade of the Day: First Solar, Inc. Scores the Long-Awaited Breakout

FSLR stock just did what bulls love to see most

By Serge Berger, InvestorPlace Chief Technical Analyst

http://bit.ly/2D3vJMm

Shares of solar energy firm First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ:FSLR) rallied nearly 10% on Thursday and by so doing accomplished an important technical breakout. Barring any immediate bearish reversal and outside news FSLR stock now looks poised to push well higher again as the next up-leg is underway.

So you know, I have offered profitable trading ideas on FSLR stock in this column several times over the past eight months as the stock began building a sound base and pushed well higher since May of 2017.
The Thursday rally in FSLR stock as well as in other U.S. solar-related stocks came on the back of renewed hopes that the Donald Trump administration on Jan. 26 may chose to impose tariffs on imported solar modules and solar cells.
More specifically for First Solar, its stock saw positive comments from analysts. All of this together really got the animal spirits going for one beauty of a breakout rally.

Looking at the multiyear weekly chart, we see that the Jan. 11 rally finally pushed FSLR stock above a simple horizontal line around the low $70s, that has been a source of technical resistance since 2014.

Although the stock has traveled far and in a steep slope since May of 2017, it has along the way also routinely had healthy consolidation phases. The latest consolidation phase began on Dec. 11, allowing the stock to rest … until the powerful breakout came to fruition on Jan. 11.

Moving averages legend: red – 200 day, blue – 100 day, yellow – 50 day
On the daily chart we see the sequence of consolidation periods since last May a little better. This type of pattern, i.e. rally followed by sideways consolidation, followed by another rally, is healthy to say the least. The difference between the previous rallies from 2017 and the one that just took place on Jan. 11 however is that this new one also broke FSLR stock above the aforementioned multi-year line of resistance.
Theoretically this latest breakout should see more traders and investors jump aboard and be able to push the stock higher toward the low to mid $80s as a next upside target.
Additionally, if the Trump administration were to impose tariffs on foreign-made solar cells, this could get more analysts to release upgrades on the stock and really get the animal spirits going.

First Solar unveils first functional Series 6 CdTe PV module after Perrysburg factory retooling

© Semiconductor Today Magazine / Juno Publishing

First Solar Inc of Tempe, AZ, USA has unveiled the first functional Series 6 thin-film photovoltaic module off its new production line in Perrysburg, OH.

Presented during a meeting with investment analysts at the Perrysburg facility, the large-area cadmium telluride (CdTe) glass-on-glass module was part of the first batch of material run completely through the recently activated line, marking a milestone in a factory retooling that began just under a year ago and included about $177m in capital investment.

In late November 2016, as a response to the highly competitive and dynamic PV market environment and customer demand for higher-efficiency modules, First Solar made a strategic decision to accelerate development and production of Series 6. The new product, still based on First Solar’s thin-film CdTe PV technology, increases physical dimensions and performance characteristics while adding an under-mount frame that allows simple, high-velocity installation of the product in the field. With superior temperature coefficient, spectral response and shading behavior, Series 6 modules can generate significantly more energy than conventional crystalline silicon modules, the firm says.

The new line is expected to begin producing commercial product in early second-quarter 2018, and will have an annualized output of 600MWdc when operating at full capacity.

Series 6 is expected to enter the commercial market with a power rating of 420-445W and conversion efficiency of more than 17%. Measuring about 2m by 1.2m, the modules will provide more watts per lift than comparable crystalline silicon solar panels, and can be installed on virtually any ground-based PV mounting system, says First Solar.

“Last November, we were in full Series 4 production mode,” says CEO Mark Widmar. “Since our decision at the end of 2016 to rapidly transition to Series 6, we’ve hit every incremental target with precision,” he adds.

First Solar will continue to maintain some Series 4 production at its plant in Kulim, Malaysia, as long as economic global demand calls for the product.

Also during the analysts’ meeting, First Solar announced that it is expanding its production facility in Vietnam, doubling capacity of the initial site (which is still under construction). Annualized production capacity in Vietnam, when fully operational, will be 2.4GWdc. In combination with Perrysburg and facilities in Kulim, this will give First Solar a total Series 6 manufacturing capacity of about 5.4GWdc by 2020, and represents about $1.4bn in capital investment.
