NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Earnings and politics will be two factors driving ETFs this week. Earnings news will impact solar and water ETFs, while a Thailand fund will digest an important court decision. Meanwhile the movements of a euro ETF will heavily influenced by Europe's efforts to grapple with a deepening sovereign debt crisis.
Claymore/MAC Global Solar (TAN)
This fund declined again last week and this sector has failed to stabilize along with the broader market. It made a death cross on Friday, with the 50-day moving average falling below the 200-day moving average. Exposure to government-supported demand in Europe faces a double whammy of a weaker euro and weak government finances.
Solar earnings continue to come in this week with Suntech Power (STP), which accounts for 4.7% of TAN, reporting on Thursday. Analysts forecast the company earned 11 cents per share on $467 million in revenue. Canadian Solar (CSIQ) also reports, with analysts looking for 48 cents per share on roughly $267 million in revenue. CSIQ accounts for 3.6% of TAN's portfolio.
