What: Shares of Yingli Green Energy
So what: In a press release, management told investors to expect a 35% to 37% increase in solar-module shipments. Earlier guidance had called for a "more than 30%" gain.
Now what: What gives? A Wells Fargo analyst sounded caution because Yingli didn't comment on second-half shipments, Reuters reported. So be it. Yingli enters tomorrow trading for one-third the long-term earnings growth analysts expect. Whatever risks remain, they appear to me to be muted by the stock's cheap valuation. Do you agree?
