A couple of months ago, latinoeconomist tapped Suntech as a cheap way to go for growth: "Growing company in a growing industry in a growing country -- what's not to like? Also, currently low P/E ratio."
In fact, Suntech currently sports a paltry P/E of 5.8. That represents a discount to competitors like Canadian Solar (8.7), First Solar (18.8), and SunPower (12.3).
CAPS member MikeB1985 elaborates on the bull case:
Suntech is the No. 1 panel maker worldwide, is expanding quicker than the competition, and has a good mix of low cost and high efficiency panels. Add a visionary CEO/founder, and they're assembling a very high quality group of executives. Not to mention, the stock price is a steal, and offers massive upside.
