    • Analyst always set a low price target on FSLR because they do not factor in the Billion $$ asset. Essentially, FSLR has lent short investors 1 billion, ($40 x 25 million shares). This asset is never factored into price targets because it does not fit nicely into any formulas. At some point the money must be paid back. As the price rises, the interest on this loan basically rises.

      If FSLR had borrowed a billion it would surely be factored into many formulas evaluating the company. Make no mistake, FSLR has loaned their assets out, their shares, and just because it is off balance sheet, does not mean it does not exist.

    • Let me try this again, post not showing up.
