Whats your point? anyone that has been in this one for awhile has shares underwater you are a newbie on here and probably a short.I have made money on this stock in the past and the main reason the solars are in the red is overproduction which has been the story for a few years.There are still too many producers and Hanwha a top fortune 500 world corporation has a good chance of staying in business.There will probably be a split of some kind so if your short you have better have incorporated that into your planning.GL
Hey xtrader, what happened to all your posts from yesterday? Get another virus on your computer? Or did the dog eat your homework? ;)
Earnings?????? Profit????? People are tired of stupid conversation. They see a losing company. Why hahwha bought q-cell and now is closing the german factory. And if malaysean solar product are sobmitted to import tariffs?
Very good hhunsaker and I sensed their spirit of competition not only with the Chinese but with the US.Hanwha as you know is a fortune world top 500 corporation.
hello Street. why haven't you answered us yet. you owe us a response. please post your thoughts. thank you
Samsung was the largest Korean solar, but they got out of that business because they could not compete with the Chinese, presumably at least partially due to dumping by the Chinese solars. At least 2 other Korean solars also exited that buisness. And several other solars in Germany and the U.S. made similar accusations against the Chinese. That's how we got into the current situation with tariffs. The U.S. had similar disputes with the Japanese back in the late 80s/early 90s over microprocessor dumping.
Hanwa seems more determined to make a success of it than Samsung was able to do, and with the merger of HSOL with QCells into HQC, and its new plant in Asia, they should have a better chance. In hindsight, competition with the Chinese may have been a contributing factor in their decision to acquire a half interest in SOLF. GL
Marketing of Hsol leaves a lot to be desired especially when there will be two brands from same company. They have to market both just like Ford and Lincoln both belonging to Ford Motors Co but have their own advertising budget.
Press releases are not advertising. I see Q-Cells ads on PvTECH web site.
The more that they do to differentiate themselves from the China solars the better for the stock price.It started as one but now it has to be the largest Korean solar in the world and since that side of Korea is allies with the US geopolitics can be taken out of the equation with good performance.IMO China is an inbetweener no matter what its rep is by the US media.
ren agree with you on first part. what I mean is that when the herd comes back home...the PR should capitalize on it not sleep on it...I really believe HSOL's communications dept is one of the worst out there.......
Hanwha Q-Cells does have manufacturing in the USA, perhaps they will move their module production to the USA. Mexico would also be a good choice.
strong dollar to likely make 4q forgettable no matter what performance is. We are beholding to future pr announcements and performance of the joined company, which is likely to take until fall for a clear sense of what they'll do. Also, hoefully the new size of the company can attract some coverage which has certtainly not helped this stock.
It sure won't hurt, but until the herd move back into clean energy, this is dead money. CSIQ is down over 21%ytd while we are down 11% and change.
and having better PR will help pps thereafter. The ones we got are low quality with no connections.
5:28 am Hanwha SolarOne amends shareholder circular to reflect restructuring of Q Cells (HSOL) : Co announced that it will file with the Securities and Exchange Commission supplemental information to the shareholder circular (the "Circular") dated December 24, 2014 regarding the proposed acquisition of Hanwha Q CELLS Investment Co.
•As part of the program, Q CELLS' German site will cease production as of March 1, 2015. At present, its German site has production capacities of 230 MW for cells and 130 MW for modules respectively.
•Q CELLS intends to transfer the respective production equipment to more cost competitive sites, namely its main production site in Cyberjaya, Malaysia for cells, and another site to be determined later for modules. The organization in Germany will be restructured accordingly and be focused on its core functions: Research & Development, Quality Management, Component Sales and Power Plant Solutions Business.
I should have mentioned that the ammended agreement just details the closing of the QCells plant in Germany, with the intent of replacing its production with the plant in Malaysia. GL longs
I believe everyone is waiting to see how the merger plays out. We will know more in February. The newswires reported today that HSOL filed the amended shareholder agreement with the SEC. As far as I can tel It does not contain any changes that we were not already aware of.
Hoping for a 4Q2014 er surprise, you never know until the fat lady sings. GL
I have confirmed that this can be done, if you are the creator of that thread. My apology to this board for so many posts on this subject. I know of no other mb site that allows this. I wil say no more about it. GL
