First Solar Rating Reiterated by TheStreet (FSLR) (DailyPolitical)
TheStreet reiterated their hold rating on shares of First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ:FSLR) in a research note released on Monday morning, Stock Ratings Network reports. “First Solar (FSLR) has been reiterated by TheStreet Ratings as a hold with a ratings score of C.
