The China solar bull was not, however, without its losers in today's session. LDK Solar (LDK) which had been on a climb all month after hitting a trough on Nov. 2 of $5.23, was down 4.34% in afternoon trading to $7.70. Yesterday it had reached its monthly high of $8.07. On Tuesday it announced plans to sell a 15% stake in its polysilicon plant, which had sent its shares higher yesterday.
LDK will report earnings on Nov. 23.
