Information for full year guidance will be provided on April 9th, on Investor Day, and that's just around the corner.
As far as I understand it, they only provided guidance for Q1 and disclosed that due to the nature of the projects, it is difficult to provide guidance for the full year. But for those that took this to be a bad news, I want to point out that if they did not have many projects in the pipeline, it would not be difficult to provide guidance, but we know that they do have plenty of projects in the pipeline. The question of course is fluctuating margins and that may be cleared up in the next few weeks.
We shall see.
They said on April 9th they will guidance all the way till 2015.... How many companies can u count in the S&P 500 and Dow 30that can give 2 years of guidance......FSLR has too many potential projects in their plate ...Middle east, Africa, Latin America, and of course saudia arabia which is not being included in the VP middle east region.....This in turn tells me that their outlook is very very bright.... now they just need time till april to put all this in place.....regardless of any analyst downgrades, FSLR has only given guidance for Q1 2013 based on that u saw these pre ejaculating wall street analyst mouths shoot off thier load. FSLR is the only undisputed heavy weight American champion in the GREEN in the entire solar industry sector.....Obama killed diamond boy's parents ( China ) by imposing 300% anti dumping tariffs......i would not be surprised that FSLR may buy out the chinese panel over productions and utilizes this in their soalr farm theme concepts around the globe.....That is my two cents...
The said EPS would be $0.80 to $1.00 for the 1st Q. I am gonna take a wild guess and say somewhere around $3.00 to $4.00 for the full year. Also suspect that by year end FSLR has over $10 in cash per share. Not bad for a $27 stock with depressed EPS.
