That piece suggested that even though solar power stocks had fairly consistently failed to live up to expectations, the ridiculously low valuations at the time made a couple of them worth buying. One of those suggestions was Canadian Solar (CSIQ).

In that article, as is my wont, I also suggested parameters for the trade; a stop loss just below $20, which was never reached, and a price target of $37, which, as it happens, was actually about 10 percent away from the top and represented a profit of over 50% in just over three months. Most of the time, when a trade idea is that successful the sensible thing to do is to walk away from the stock and never look at it again. In this case, though I will make an exception.

There are two basic reasons for this exception, one fundamental and one technical.
