Expect Volatility When Playing These Chinese Solar Stocks

The Bedford Report Provides Analyst Research on LDK Solar & Trina Solar

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 17, 2010) - Solar stocks are way up for the year, although the last month has been extremely volatile. Huge sales in Germany combined with positive demand overall helped solar companies post record third quarter earnings. Many of the stocks recently sold off in concern following the earnings reports have now peaked. Chinese solar stocks have been perhaps the most volatile because of growing concerns about U.S. complaints that China is subsidizing solar. The Bedford Report examines the outlook for companies in the Solar Industry and provides research reports on LDK Solar Co. (NYSE: LDK) and Trina Solar Ltd. (NYSE: TSL).

The future growth prospects aren't exactly certain for these Chinese solar companies, however. Recently U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk announced that his office was probing allegations filed by the United Steelworkers Union that China was assisting its domestic producers of solar products with protectionist and subsidy policies that are in violation of World Trade Organization rules. The Steelworkers Union believes that China's support of its solar power firms enables them to charge less than U.S. companies, giving them an unfair competitive advantage that undermines job growth at U.S. energy firms. Kirk said that the Obama Administration is "committed to ensuring a level playing field for American workers, businesses and green technology entrepreneurs."
