Shares of Suntech Power Holdings Co. Ltd. (STP) started trading yesterday and the stock closed with a 34% gain on the day. Suntech is a solar PV manufacture based in China’s Jiangsu Province. They plan on using this cash infusion to expand manufacturing capacity and to research ways of lowering the cost of producing silicon solar cells. This stock is one way to purchase shares in two hot areas right now (Solar and China.) I’m not able to purchase shares in this company yet for the mutual fund since Marketocracy doesn’t list this company yet. I’m currently heavily weighted in solar shares in my personal portfolio and I am holding off on purchasing this company for now.
