First Solar (FSLR) just hit it big in China.
This week, the company announced a memorandum of understanding with the Chinese government to build a 2 gigawatt solar power plant in Mongolia. But it’s not necessarily reason to buy the stock here.
A new Deutsche Bank research report calls First Solar (FSLR) a ‘hold:’
We believe First Solar’s clear industry leadership, lowest LCoE, and strong efforts in China yielded this MOU win. We view this as a potential long-term positive, but with many issues yet to be defined; this deal has great potential but is hardly closed. Considering near-term industry and pricing pressures we maintain our Hold rating.
The risks? DB lists near-term oversupply (which we’ve noted); currency fluctuations; changes
to policy and incentive programs; and general economic risk.
