Jim Cramer's Stop Trading: FSLR SCTY

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Shares of First Solar (FSLR) are higher after a strong analyst meeting that is going "incredibly well" according to TheStreet's Jim Cramer, co-manager of the Action Alerts PLUS portfolio

First Solar missed its most recent earnings expectations, but Cramer said that "it's never about the quarter, it's about the guidance." After providing strong guidance for 2014 to 2016, investors are clearly happy.

SolarCity (SCTY), on the other hand, is based a little bit more on hope, according to Cramer. He said the company is trying to reinvent the electric grid and how it works with solar power. 

Maybe his opinion will change, he admitted, but Cramer said that for now he would rather be a buyer of First Solar instead of SolarCity. 

He concluded that First Solar has "real momentum" right now, and he is looking for the stock to push through $62 and break out higher from there.
