“Part of the initial step back by investors today was caused by continued fallout from Solyndra’s bankruptcy, which was the subject of a hearing before Congress this morning.

Companies affected include JinkoSolar (NYSE:JKS), First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR), GT Advanced Technologies (NASDAQ:SOLR), and Suntech (NYSE:STP).
