11/1/13FSLR (Samurai Trader)

FSLR is often considered the leading solar stock, but this time, it has been a laggard, and has a very weak price relative line.

Despite all that, this may be in for another good run, as it broke out of a 6 month base that went quite deep. However, if this goes up, the others likely will as well, and so far they have been running rings around this one.
