    Seeking Alpha TSL 2014 estimates

    "Shipments: Trina Solar's panel shipments for the quarter stood at around 770 megawatts (MW), which is a 5% increase over the last year. While much of the sales growth has come from China (which now accounts for 40% of revenues), other markets such as Japan and the United Kingdom also saw healthy growth. China is expected to be the key driver for the company's growth in 2014 as well, given the government's target of adding a total of 14 GW of solar power this year. The company's guidance for 2014 looks promising, with shipments expected to rise by over 40% to between 3.6 gigawatts (GW) and 3.8 GW.

    Average Selling Prices: Average selling prices increased to $0.66 per watt from around $0.64 per watt in the previous quarter, due to higher pricing in China and Europe. This is an encouraging trend since price realizations in the Chinese market - which now accounts for the bulk of Trina's sales - have historically been slightly below the global average. However, for this year, the company largely expects pricing to remain stable.

    New Manufacturing Capacity: Trina had been running its module and cell manufacturing facilities at well above their rated capacity of 2.4 GW per annum through much of 2013. However, the company is taking steps to increase its cell and module capacity to about 3 GW and 3.8 GW, respectively, by the end of 2014, through some strategic agreements. Since much of the additional capacity will come from existing manufacturers, Trina should be able to quickly scale up its operations without spending time and effort in constructing new factories."
