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.

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.

Needham & Co

New York (www.aktiencheck.de) - First Solar-Aktienanalyse von Analyst Y. Edwin Mok von Needham & Co:

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.”

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.

Geübte Trader schauen hin:

http://investor.firstsolar.com/news-releases/news-release-details/first-solar-inc-announces-first-quarter-2018-financial-results

First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ:FSLR) shares were down following the company’s latest quarterly earnings results.

First Solar, Inc.The solar energy company announced first-quarter net income of $82.95 million, or 78 cents per share, which was a considerable improvement compared to its year-ago earnings of $9.13 million, or 9 cents per share. The company’s revenue for the period came in at $567.27 million, declining about 36.4% compared to the year-ago quarter from the $891.79 million from the first quarter of fiscal 2017.

For the full fiscal year, First Solar is projecting adjusted earnings in the range of $1.50 to $1.90 per share, while revenue is slated to be in the range of $2.45 billion to $2.65 billion. The company also announced the addition of a new U.S. Series 6 manufacturing plant, which will be located near an existing facility in northwest Ohio.

The plant will have a nameplate capacity of 1.2GW, with initial production in the facility kicking off in early 2019. The expected capital expenditures of the plant are slated to be around $400 million.

The move will help First Solar create more than 500 new high-quality manufacturing jobs. At the end of the quarter, the company had an ending net cash of $2.4 billion and it has 3.3GW booked in fiscal 2018 year-to-date.

FSLR stock was down about 0.2% after the bell Thursday due to the company’s declining revenue, despite earnings coming in ahead of its year-ago mark.

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.

SMA Solar hält trotz Bauteile

SMA Solar hält trotz Bauteile-Knappheit und Preisdruck an Zielen fest

Der Solartechnik-Konzern SMA Solar sieht sich trotz mancher Widrigkeiten auf Kurs zu seinen Jahreszielen. "SMA verzeichnete im ersten Halbjahr 2018 insbesondere in Asien und Europa eine positive Geschäftsentwicklung", erklärte Vorstandssprecher Pierre-Pascal Urbon am Donnerstag in Niestetal bei Kassel. Dabei seien die Produktionsabläufe durch eine allgemeine Knappheit elektronischer Bauteile beeinträchtigt worden. "Für die zweite Jahreshälfte rechnen wir mit einer Verbesserung der Liefersituation und höheren Umsätzen."

09.08.2018 07:30

Im ersten Halbjahr war der Umsatz um 3,5 Prozent auf 394,6 Millionen Euro gestiegen. Das operative Ergebnis (Ebitda) verbesserte sich um 40 Prozent auf 40,9 Millionen Euro. Unterm Strich verdiente das Unternehmen mit 11,2 Millionen Euro gut ein Viertel mehr als im Vorjahreszeitraum.

Urbon peilt für das Gesamtjahr weiterhin einen Umsatz von 0,9 bis 1,0 Milliarde Euro an sowie ein operatives Ergebnis von 90 bis 110 Millionen Euro. Allerdings stellte der Vorstand die Prognose unter den Vorbehalt, dass Projekte nicht in grösserem Umfang verschoben würden, weil Kunden weiter fallende Solarmodulpreise erwarteten. SMA Solar macht den Grossteil seines Geschäfts mit Wechselrichtern, einem Kernbestandteil von Solaranlagen. Starken Druck auf den Aktienkurs der Gesellschaft hatte Anfang Juni die Nachricht ausgelöst, dass China die Photovoltaik-Aktivitäten stark reduzieren will./das/jha/
