TheStreet Ratings team rates JA SOLAR HOLDINGS CO LTD as a Sell with a ratings score of D. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate JA SOLAR HOLDINGS CO LTD (JASO) a SELL.

Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been poor profit margins."
