Q: I noticed that when people ask for top ďenergyĒ names they are often provided with companies involved in oil and gas (eg. SU, CNQ, TOU, etc). What sector is the solar industry in and how do they compare to the top oil and gas names?

Q: Do you concur with seeking Alpha? Thanks!
Canadian Solar Inc. (CSIQ) is cheaply valued. Especially considering its growth potential. The company has a strong backlog in energy projects and plans significant production capacity expansion. It is also planning to unlock value by an IPO in China of a subsidiary. The relative valuation to peers looks good as well. The company had a strong performance over the past year, it's still a bit behind other solar stocks as shown by the Invesco Solar ETF (TAN).

Q: Hi 5iR Team, Recently, I asked a question on Solar Technology stocks and the team gave me 4 names to follow up on: CSIQ, TSLA, FSLR, and SPWR. After doing some more research I would like to add to the list; SEDG and ENPH and drop SPWR and TSLA. OK, we now have 4 names; CSIQ, FSLR, SEDG, and ENPH. Could you rank order these names for me, perhaps with a few comments on why. Thanks very much team. Cheers, Chris
