Its prior outlook was for $0.69 to $0.84 per share, and analysts were expecting Team to make around $0.72 per share.

JA Solar Holdings Co. Ltd. (JASO)
JA Solar Holdings is on fire today, up 70.23% at $9.55. The solar panel company saw its shares skyrocket after releasing astonishing earnings. First-quarter revenue was $270 million, with a net loss of $33.3 million, or $0.85 per share. Analysts were expecting $226 million in revenue and a $1.03 per share loss. The better than expected earnings led investors to buy shares, hoping for continued success in the future. JA Solar traded to a new 52-week of $9.86 intraday. Along with JA Solar, many solar stocks were up today as German economy minister said that anti-dumping duties on Chinese solar panels would be a "grave mistake".
