Hedge Funds Lose Big After First Solar $FSLR Shares Fall Over 6%

First Solar (FSLR)‘s share price fell more than 6% Monday morning as FSLR share prices fell from $53.99 at close on Friday to trade at $50.38 at 10am EST Monday. The loss came after Merrill Lynch’s Joe Osha changed his rating from buy to underperform, reports Barrons, and is only the most recent decline. FSLR share prices fell over 25% on Tuesday after news of Gillette became public. The share price recovered briefly, moving from $43.27 at close on Tuesday October 25 to finish the week at $53.99, but news of the downgrade is pushing FSLR lower once again.
