Every day, the sun rises on Wall Street, and a plethora of professional analysts wake to issue new opinions on stocks. Here at the Fool, we use our "This Just In" column to examine some of these picks -- and the track records of the companies behind them -- so individuals can make better investing decisions.

In addition to following professional banks, anyone can use Motley Fool CAPS to monitor the collective opinions of more than 145,000 members, many of whom demonstrate better investing insight than published analysts do.

After living on the edge of greatness for more than a year now at four-star rank, enough CAPS members have voted bullishly for JA Solar (NASDAQ:JASO) recently to have it touching the elusive five-star level. A total of 1,386 members have given their opinion on JA Solar, with many of them offering analysis and commentary explaining the recent optimism.

Many CAPS members like the recent momentum that's been lifting many solar players lately, not only JA Solar but other Chinese firms like Suntech Power (NYSE:STP), Yingli Green Energy (NYSE:YGE), and Trina Solar (NYSE:TSL), too. The company reported the highest quarterly shipments in its history for the third quarter, a feat also accomplished by ReneSola (NYSE:SOL), while it picked up market share and diversified its customer base. Thanks to a sweet spot in pricing, it's seen demand significantly outpacing its capacity, a trend similar to that of SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWRA).

So far, the strength has carried on through the fourth quarter, prompting JA Solar to notch up its shipment guidance in the fourth quarter, while forecasting a big jump next year as well. It's seen strong orders from existing and new customers, and expects strong growth from its newer markets such as the Czech Republic and Japan. U.S.-based First Solar (NASDAQ:FSLR) also has a brighter outlook for 2010, as it plans to boost its production capacity in Malaysia. Many investors like that JA Solar is one of the lower cost producers and has positioned itself well to benefit from the uptick in demand, and some CAPS members think its efficiency will translate into strong future earnings potential.
