Chinese solar stocks have struggled in 2012 as numerous complaints from the U.S. and Europe have led to anti-dumping duties, ranging from 31 percent to 250 percent, on Chinese solar manufacturers. It was recently reported by the Xinhua News Agency that a number of Chinese solar companies have requested the Chinese government to probe polysilicon dumping by German manufacturers.
"Solar manufacturers worldwide are operating with production capacity that exceeds demand by at least two to one," Pavel Molchanov, a Raymond James & Associates analyst, said in a recent interview.
"It's very hard for these companies to remain profitable under those conditions."
