LDK Solar Is on the Brink

LDK Solar (NASDAQOTH: LDKYQ  ) is on the brink of failure after another terrible performance in the first quarter. The company is paying more than half of its revenue in interest payments and is begging creditors to refinance debt so that it can stay alive. For equity investors there is little upside given the company's high debt load and massive losses. contributor Travis Hoium weighs in on LDK's situation.

One way investors can play solar is by looking for companies with better balance sheets and downstream exposure. First Solar is one of only a few companies that fits that bill. If you're looking for continuing updates and guidance on the company whenever news breaks, The Motley Fool has created a brand-new report that details every must know side of this stock.
