    Here are a few more notable items from the week.

    First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR) completed 18 MW of solar farms in Thailand with Prime Road Group. This is a module supply agreement from First Solar and is an example of the strategy it’s moving to in the long term. Look for more projects in which the company supplies equipment but a third party does construction and owns the project. Speaking of supply agreements, First Solar signed a 140 MW module supply agreement in Australia this week. The project will begin construction in April, so this will be a source of revenue for First Solar this year. Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ) sold three utility-scale solar projects totaling 59.8 MW to Fengate Real Asset Investments this week for $195.3 million. This helps monetize assets on the balance sheet, reducing risk for the business in 2017.

    That’s all for this week in solar. Earnings season in the industry starts next week, so we’ll be able to see how strategies and trends are playing out in what’s sure to be an exciting 2017.

Top 10 Heal Care Stocks To Watch Right Now

Over in DigiTimes, contributor Nebojsa Novakovic recently speculated that gaming-oriented graphics processors based on NVIDIA’s (NASDAQ:NVDA) recently announced Volta architecture could use a type of video memory known as HBM2 (“high bandwidth memory 2”) rather than a more traditional graphics double data rate (GDDR) memory.

HBM2 memory is believed to be more expensive to produce than traditional GDDR-type memory, but the idea is that HBM2 is said to offer power efficiency and physical footprint advantages over GDDR-type memories.

Image source: NVIDIA.

Today, NVIDIA’s GP100 chip — which powers the company’s Tesla P100 datacenter accelerator and its Quadro GP100 professional visualization accelerator — uses HBM2, while the company’s gaming-oriented Pascal products (GP102, GP104, GP106, GP107, GP108) use either GDDR5X (for higher-end products) or GDDR5 (for lower-end products).

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Igor Novgorodtsev]

    InterActiveCorp (IACI) bought Ask.com for $1.85 billion in 2005. The new Perion will be worth only about 40% of that. After the merger, Perion will leapfrog its much larger rivals: Babylon and AVG (AVG). Finally, Perion should be able to increase its operating margins as it can spread its SG&A costs over a much larger base (Conduit EBITDA margin is 32% vs. Perion’s 23%). Perion will keep its senior management team intact: Josef Mandelbaum will remain its CEO and Yacov Kaufman its CFO. Perion has successfully orchestrated a roll-up acquisitions of privately-held Sweetpacks and Smilebox, so I have high confidence that they know how to integrate a new business.
