China Solar Stocks: Barclays Says Buy Yingli, Sell Solarfun

Barclays Capital analyst Vishal Shah this morning picked up coverage of a half-dozen China-based solar stocks.

Yingli Green Energy (YGE): Overweight rating, $12 target. “Yingli has [the] industry leading nonsilicon cost structure and among the highest exposure to declining spot silicon prices.”

Solarfun Power (SOLF): Underweight rating, $3.50 target. “Lack of sufficient cash balance, relatively low brand differentiation and downside risk to estimates could lead to share price underperformance.”
