Morning Spy: Good News from Europe for Once, Solar Snaps Back (LDK, CSIQ, VIT, CNIT, NAFC, SPTN, SI, LTD, PAL, SWC, TM, HMC, POT, MOS, NOK)
Positive headlines from Europe over the long weekend helped markets kick off Tuesday in positive territory. A somewhat tepid consumer confidence number, meanwhile, hasn’t been enough to put too much of a damper on things.
Today’s Top tickerspy Indexes:
Solar Stocks (up 3.7%, see graph): Solar stocks are rallying amid a growing sense that the recent sell-off across the sector may have been too extreme. Positive analyst comments on LDK Solar Company (LDK) and news of a Canadian Solar (CSIQ) plan to team with GCL in China are underpinning the positive sentiment.
Chinese IT Stocks (up 3.3%, see graph): Like many small-cap-dominated Chinese Indexes, the big storyline here remains the concern that accounting irregularities will lead to delistings. With the market rallying today, investors are betting that names like VanceInfo Technologies (VIT) and China Information Technology (CNIT) are going to weather the scrutiny.
Germany Stocks and ADRs (up 2.9%, see graph): Word of a bailout for Greece is boosting sentiment across Europe, but especially in Germany which is seen as the bulwark against a European debt meltdown. Siemens AG (SI) is among the leaders after the industrial giant’s CFO told a German newspaper over the weekend that he expects “robust growth.”
