Yes, would expect to see some broker upgrades coming through on the back of the strong order book and visibility. Nice to see the earnings growth passing through to dividends.

Business and environmental groups have welcomed the Court of Appeal's decision to uphold a ruling that government cuts to household solar subsidies are illegal. Three judges ruled on Wednesday that parliament did not have the power to change "with such a retrospective effect" the "feed-in tariffs" paid to homes, businesses and communities for generating small-scale renewable electricity. The government must now pay the solar industry's legal costs. It will also have to pay its original higher subsidy for customers who install panels between mid-December and early March – a cost that could eventually run into tens of millions of pounds. The number of installations soared 10-fold between the announcement in late October and the cut-off point on December 12, rising from 220 a day to 2,376 a day, according to new figures from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). The total for the six-week period of 102,183 was not far short of the 127,474 installed in the previous 18 months. Caroline Flint, shadow energy secretary, described the uptake as a "gold rush". "The government has wasted time and money fighting the High Court ruling and created huge uncertainty, putting thousands of jobs in renewable energy at risk," said Ms Flint. The industry employs an estimated 29,000 people. The decision is a fresh embarrassment for Chris Huhne, the energy secretary, who is already under pressure over allegations that he asked his wife to take speeding penalty points for him several years ago. The verdict means solar subsidies will be halved from March 3 – giving investors a three-month delay before the cuts come in. The High Court ruled last month that ministers had acted illegally by moving rapidly to cut the money paid to anyone fitting a small solar system from 43.3p to 21p per kilowatt hour. A government consultation was due to end on December 23 – nearly two weeks after the December 12 cut-off date. As a result, the industry was given only six weeks' notice that its support would be slashed. John Cridland, director-general of the CBI employers' group, which has been scathing about the way the announcement was handled, said the "high-growth sector" needed much greater certainty in the future. The case was brought by Friends of the Earth, the environmental group, and the Solarcentury and HomeSun solar companies. Daniel Green, chief executive of HomeSun, said the campaign had been backed from "everybody from the National Trust to the Church of England". A DECC spokeswoman said the government was still "considering our options" – prompting speculation that it could seek to lodge a second appeal with the Supreme Court. There may now be a renewed rush to install panels before March 3, although the statutory organisation Consumer Focus pointed out that installation and registration typically took four weeks.

Glad I topped up at sub 220p levels. No idea what caused the sudden bounce but its overdue and understandable on fundamentals. I'd like to see it hold above 235p and suspect we will need news or a big market rally (which i cant see coming) to get us back up into the 260 to 280 range where I think we belong.

dont think it was shorts. if no rns tomorrow then must be just a fund manager loading up on what seems to be undervalued stock. 240 looks like resistance for now.

The other side of the coin nickward, is that councils will try to contract out even more work, to reduce the ever heavier employment and pension costs of a directly employed army of jobsworths.

Just shorts closing, that's my guess. Although I have taken a long position I have to say that I am concerned that the exposure to public sector work means cost savings may well get passed on to contractors and Mears are not the cheapest in the market. Certainly if I was negotiating on behalf of a council I would want to take a serious look at other providers.

ards, Looks like a large dose of common sense has returned to the share, the fall after the last update was way overdone.

hosede, Government U turns very popular these days makes dealing with DECC very tricky. Bad decision making at government level means we all pay the price. Looks like Homesun and others are not going down without a fight http://www.homesun.com/about-us/media-room/ What is to become of other new technologies such as domestic micro chp which also rely on the FIT. I have looked at solar PV for myself and after a small amount of research found that my electricity bill is only 12% of my total energy bill and that working on cutting my gas bill via sealing up the drafts and upgrading my homes insulation is both cheaper and more cost effective. Loft insulation only £1 per roll at B&Q !

small caps are punished by shorters in this market for any misses. easy money as they know there are a lot of weak hands. just have to accept this is the game. shares are risky for this reason. no real logic just the game. overall a small miss. they took a risk and it did not pay off. i disagree with hosede that it was a major blunder. if you are in business you take risks but keep them manageable. with pe of 8 falling to 7 next year and dominant in market looks good value at minute. would start nibbling in small bits up to 240 although may retest bottom again.

I read the interim statement as being a one off set back due to the solar situation. Beyond the control of management. If underlying business is OK this is a good topping up opportunity which is what I am doing. Market seems to see it differently though.

This share price fall is disappointing and an over reaction to the small right down of the solar work.
