Gabelli’s Segrich Shorts JA Solar as Italy, Germany Plan Cut to Subsidies
Gabelli & Co. fund manager John Segrich said he has shorted JA Solar Holdings Co. and Power-One Inc. (PWER) as Italy and Germany plan cuts to solar-power subsidies. Segrich, who didn´t disclose how much borrowed stock he sold, said some of the best markets for their products have too much supply. 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.”
