Company Description

Why We Like It:
FSLR is a solar energy company. They make components and design systems. After a run summer many of the solar energy names have produced a comeback. Shares of FSLR plunged in early August following a disappointing earnings report and cautious guidance. The stock has rebounded back to this key level at the top of the gap down. Shares have resistance in the $45.80-46.00 area.

A breakout here could spark some short covering. The most recent data listed short interest at 21% of the 70.7 million share float. I am suggesting a trigger to open bullish positions at $46.05. If triggered our target is $54.00 but we may exit earlier to avoid holding over FSLR's earnings report expected around the end of October or early November. FYI: The Point & Figure chart for FSLR is bullish with a $54.00 target.

NOTE: FSLR can be a volatile stock. I am suggesting small positions to limit our risk.

Trigger @ 46.05 *small positions*
