Will solar stocks be hot again? This is a big questions for everybody. To answer this, Insider Monkey has a blog about "Will Solar Stocks Be Hot Again?" for us to read on with regards to solar news.

Chinese manufacturers has been gaining market share from their US counterparts. Most notably First Solar (FSLR) has been losing customers to the top 5 Chinese manufacturers—Yingli Green Energy (YGE), Suntech Power (STP), Trina Solar (TSL), Canadian Solar (CSIQ) and Jinko Solar (JKS).  This is evident from the fact that total shipments for FSLR were down 3% for the year 2011, whereas the aggregate shipments for these 5 Chinese companies were up 53%. However, the story of solar stocks, both US and Chinese, will be driven by how much new capacity comes online, at what point does the average selling prices (ASPs) stabilize and how does the end demand from Europe and U.S shapes up.
