I can trade SP futures but I don't think it sexy. Where is the problem. I am sorry that I did not buy DQ, CSUN and more Chinese #$%$.
Hey, what penny stock I am making more than 300% on HSOL and I told to this MB hundreds of times to buy it. This is solidarity between small investors like us.
may be total short squeeze. If we have similar situation we may see this with SPWR shorts.
Look Bucket, the great majority of Chinese are losing companies: JASO still negative margins, YGE (they say) in risk of default, CSUN losing a lot, DQ losing 10 per share and bad q2 ER, CSIQ and TSL with hopes to be profitable, the only one profitable, JKS, jumping every day. I have Chinese solar stock and I am glad for them but I think SPWER deserves more. For instance I have HSOL which is still with negative margins and I am 13% plus only today but why SPWR is penalized after all these good news?
all are up big. We are almost flat we so many good news. In July we were at $28.00. Why we cannot go back to $28.00?
IMS Research: Emerging solar markets set for rapid expansion, DigiTimes says
There have been 17 government shutdowns since 1976, ranging in length from one to 21 days. None has caused a market meltdown.
The average decline in the Standard & Poor's 500 index during a shutdown lasting 10 days or more is about 2.5 percent. For shutdowns lasting five days or fewer, the average decline is 1.4 percent.
"If they shut the government down for two days, the world's not going to stop revolving," says Ron Florance, deputy chief investment officer for Wells Fargo Private Bank.

“We see solar becoming increasingly mainstream as it passes cost competitiveness with traditional forms of generation,” the Deutsche Bank analysts write.
“While we will likely see some utilities fight at every step of the way (because it threatens their business model), we expect system economics will ultimately win in the longer run and yearly installations will continue the general upward trajectory.”
Deutsche Bank estimates that solar PV is at grid parity in 10 states in the US without additional subsidies. The key to this is the falling price of modules, and the growth of financing options, which benefit from a 30 per cent investment tax credit in the US.
The Deutsche Bank scenario suggests the US will become the biggest solar market in the world. And while 50GW will only represent 2% of the country’s total generation by 2016, its impact on the incumbent electricity market could be considerable, as former Energy Secretary Stephen Chu, NRG CEO David Crane, Duke Energy boss Jim Rogers and Jon Wellinghoff, the chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission - among many otherr – have predicted.
The US solar market has been dominated by utility scale installations to date, with comparatively little rooftop solar. But Deutsche Bank estimates that in 2015 and 2016, annual installation rates will jump to 12GW and 16GW, meaning it will likely overtake China, Japan and Germany for the most annual installations.
It says total capacity will grow to 50GW under this scenario (Germany is currently 35GW but slowing, while China aims for 35GW by 2015) and it says up to 30GW of this installed solar capacity will come from distributed generation.
“We believe 2015 will be a key inflection point for solar power in the United States,” the Deutsche Bank analysts say. “The economics are already compelling in 20-30 per cent of US states and we expect this to improve as soft costs (balance of systems) come down and potential customer awareness begins to ramp.”
Energy analysts at Deutsche Bank are predicting a huge surge in the uptake of distributed solar PV in the United States, the world’s biggest economy and electricity market, saying solar PV installations could rise 7-fold in coming years and lift overall solar PV capacity to nearly 50GW by 2016.
The expected boom in distributed solar – installations placed on homes and commercial businesses – is based on predictions that solar PV module prices will continue to fall, grid prices will continue rise, and innovative financing options will provide ample and cheap capital.
Earlier this month, Deutsche Bank forecast as much as a seven-fold increase in solar installations, measured in capacity, through 2016. The gain, to an estimated 50 gigawatts, would put the U.S. ahead of both China and Germany in solar capacity.
