Solar Tariffs on China: Good for FSLR and SPWR

Solar Panels

Could the beaten-down Solar sector finally make a comeback?

The Commerce Department affirmined its ruling yesterday that certain Chinese companies dumped their products on the U.S. market and received unfair subsidies from the Chinese government.

The department adjusted some of the tariffs it wants to impose on the Chinese makers, with some companies seeing a slightly lower burden and others a slight increase. The tariffs generally range from about 24% to nearly 36% for leading Chinese makers.

The department said Chinese solar-panel makers including Suntech Power Holdings Co. (STP) -2.31% and Trina Solar Ltd. (TSL) have been selling panels at unfairly low prices.

What does this mean for U.S. Solar Sector stocks such as First Solar (FSLR) and SunPower (SPWR)?

Obviously, there will be less supply dumped on the market, so Solar Panel margins won't continue their death spiral to 0.

Mastery Bottom Line:

It could be a great time to get back in to Solar. The Masters recommend FSLR and SPWR.
