The long term trend for First Solar is downward 100% sure. Its technology is outdated. That’s why they acquired a Si company to play catch up game. Too late. Chinese Si companies have already flooded the market with dirt cheap panels. In a few years, the utility installation projects will dry up. To be real, do you really think utility companies will buy unlimited number of contracts from first solar? Just like any power plants,coal, nuclear, wind... utility companies want to make the most out of any single power plant. With Europe recession and US 2% GDP, how much more electricity do we really need? None. We built way too many power plants in 1950s. There’s no way for First Solar to go back to $200. That’s a bubble. I hate to say that even though I wish it could go back even to $100 to cover half of my loss.
