Auriga: Solar Overcapacity Won’t Be A Problem, Top Picks DQ, SOL, TSL, YGE, STP

Auriga’s Bullish Outlook For Solar, Sees 23% Growth, Top Picks SOL, JKS, SOLF

Auriga released its 2011 report on the solar industry last night and I wanted to summarize it a bit here for my readers.  Auriga continues to remain generally bullish on the sector and doesn’t buy into the weakening demand + supply glut scenario that several other analysts are predicting for 2011/2012.   They predict 23% growth for 2011 and highlight the elasticity of the solar market where as prices decrease demand picks up.  They cite a … Read the rest
