Hot Value Stocks To Invest In 2019

The U.S. utility-scale solar market is currently a big, but finite market for solar panel manufacturers. Given the rising cost of solar panels because of import tariffs there probably won’t be much expansion over the next three or four years.

It’s this finite market that First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR) is trying to expand into to capture as much value as possible while competitors are hampered by solar panel import tariffs. But with the announcement of a new 1,200 megawatts (MW) solar panel manufacturing facility inLake Township, Ohio last week, First Solar may be expanding to the point where it will see diminishing returns on its own growth.

How First Solar hits diminishing returns

Solar tariffs of 30% on solar panel imports have given First Solar a big advantage in the U.S. solar market. Its thin-film panel construction wasn’t included in the scope of tariffs, so all of the company’s products can be sold in the U.S. tariff-free. The advantage should lead to strong pricing and margins in the utility-scale solar market where First Solar sells its product.
