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%.

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?
