Solar Stocks Turn Positive: Yingli, Trina Up

Stocks in this article: YGE TSL JASO STP LDK SOLF

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Solar stocks finally turned positive on Tuesday afternoon -- after several days of share-price bleeding -- with some of the big Chinese solar players ending Tuesday in positive territory.

Both Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE) ended Tuesday with gains -- though each of less than 1%.

Still, set against double digit percentage declines in share price on Thursday and Friday of last week, the modest gains on Tuesday could be a sign that investors believe the Chinese solar shares have taken enough of a beating following the news out of Germany that the world's biggest solar market might cut its solar feed-in tariffs to a greater extent than anticipated, and sooner than expected.

Some of the other Chinese companies were up to an even greater degree on Tuesday at the market close. LDK Solar (LDK) was up more than 3%; ReneSola (SOL) close to 3%; and SolarFun Power (SOLF) and Canadian Solar (CSIQ), among the previously hard hit Chinese solar stocks, were up 1.7% and 1.5% respectively on Tuesday.

The big dogs on Tuesday were JA Solar (JASO) and China Sunergy (CSUN), both down more than 3%. ( JA Solar received a downgrade to neutral today from Broadpoint Amtech.)

All of which raises the question: Is the bleeding in Chinese solar stocks over, and if so, is it over for the right reasons?
