    CSIQ is 2.4% UP after hours with high volume (87K)... Probably good news will be out tomorrow morning... Either on buyout decision or sale of American projects... ...Chinese Holiday season is starting in 3 days (Feb-15), I guess Board of Directors wants to make a "pleasant" New Year's present for Mr. Qu...

    Solar market is expected to rebound in March, after Chinese holidays, and if Qu will be downgrading CSIQ with his mumbling, during ER in March - I will sue him personally, I promise!!!... It looks to me more and more like a ponzi scheme... Every Qu statement always included, Quote: "... to increase the value for our shareholders"... And thus, after promising stars and collecting SH's money and building successful company with a lot of projects for sale (disguised as liabilities on its balance sheet, until sold), he is going to snatch the company, built with my money, and disappear into China... Tell me it is not a modern style ponzi in action...

    "In a statement, the administration said it would now look to open negotiations on existing anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties on Chinese solar products and the reciprocal duties placed on US polysilicon by Beijing."

    "The U.S. Trade Representative’s office responded to a pv magazine email and indicated there were no countries exempted from the solar tariff decision, although it wasn’t clear if Singapore was included."

    I am curious if, besides DACA, democrats are also pushing for PV tariff total rejection, to avoid government shutdown...? Timing is just perfect...

    Watch out for Hemlock... If there will be a deal, in the next 10 days, with 201 section rejection in exchange for Chinese poly market access for Hemlock and other US poly producers, then DQ may have a problem... https://pv-magazine-usa.com/2018/01/12/hemlock-calls-on-trump-to-restore-access-to-the-chinese-polysilicon-market/

    Polysilicon is not some RareEarth metal, which can be difficult to mine/produce. Silicon is abundant, this niche with a high price will be filled quickly... And then oversupply... GCL-Poly Energy Holdings is one of many who adds 40 000 mt of polysilicon to Chinese market in 2018...https://www.pv-tech.org/news/gcl-poly-to-spend-us823-million-on-expanding-polysilicon-production-by-4000

    She is right. My background is 17 years of Ferroalloy production and trading. Ferrosilicon (met grade) is one of them. Metal oversupply happens constantly. When producer is facing oversupply and price going below production cost, there is usually two scenarios: 1) is to shut down facility, send employees home with 75% pay, continue to pay multiple payments (taxes, leases, rents, maintenance, etc) and wait until shortage of material on the market again or 2) continue producing at a loss. But that loss will be smaller than loss at idle facility. I had personally experienced at one facility 6 times what I have described. So, Yes, price can go below 12 or 7 or whatever cost is at DQ, in no time. And yes, one should expect oversupply in China as there is expected extra volumes coming online in 2018....also what is important is that Silicon price of $20/kg is only in China, the rest of the world has around 15... such situation is going to change, it can’t be like that for a long time...

    Brazil to hold another auction including solar in April 2018 https://www.pv-magazine.com/2017/12/04/brazil-to-hold-another-auction-including-solar-in-april/
  13. Canadian Solar (CSIQ)

    Wow, JASO in Premarket 7.78/share... Above buyout price 7.55...
  14. Canadian Solar (CSIQ)

    It is obvious that institutional investors (and other ordinary SH) have two options now: 1) to sell now and repurchase lower (trading). 2) continue to hold their 44.5 mln of shares and simply demand higher price, suggesting to BoD (everybody can send a letter both to CEO or BoD) that there will be "No" vote to 18.47... Like you said the whole game is going to be short, due to reasons mentioned here many times, therefore what is the most efficient decision here: to keep and suggest "No" or to trade & speculate? I think the most efficient way would be to "suggest" No, force Qu into upping offer to 19.5 - 20.5 level and then say Yes. And everybody happy. If you have 2 - 3 mln of shares, like one of those institutions (DNB Asset Management AS or QUENTEC ASSET MANAGEMENT LLC) , and daily trading volume is just 700-900 000 shares, what would you do - trade or increase price simply saying No...?
  15. Canadian Solar (CSIQ)

    "No" vote will keep it public.
