Solar Stocks Finally Light Up: FSLR, STP, YGE, LDK, CSIQ, JASO, WFR, SOLR, SPWRA, TSL

For its third consecutive day, solar stocks (NYSE:TAN) are enjoying a rally.

With help earlier in the week from covering shorts and a prediction for a German solar demand increase in October and November, today’s rally may be coming from bets on who will survive this troubled industry’s shakeout. The U.S. demand and growth looks better than Europe’s but in a recent analysis by Solarbuzz, the outlook has overproduction and price cuts in the near future.

Solar stocks to watch as the industry tries to rebound: First Solar Inc. (NASDAQ:FSLR), Suntech Power Holdings (NYSE:STP), Yingli Green Energy Hold. Co. Ltd. (NYSE:YGE), LDK Solar Co. (NYSE:LDK), Canadian Solar Inc. (NASDAQ:CSIQ), JA Solar Holdings Co. (NASDAQ:JASO), MEMC Electronic Materials(NYSE:WFR), and GT Solar International Inc. (NASDAQ:SOLR), SunPower Inc (NASDAQ:SPWRA) and Trina Solar Limited (NYSE:TSL).
