Shanghai-based JA Solar makes solar cells, and Power-One of California is the second-largest manufacturer of solar-power inverters, according to the company’s website. “It’s going to take prices collapsing to open up new markets,” Segrich, who manages about $40 million at Rye, New York-based Gabelli, said in a telephone interview yesterday. “We’ve got the hard-landing scenario.”
