decline1 May 6, 2010 (Chinavestor) Chinese stocks fell hard on Thursday trailing Asian indices lower. Large cap stocks hold on better than smaller counterparts; the Claymore/AlphaShares Small Cap China ETF (NYSE:HAO) lost three times as much as the large cap proxy, FXI.

Chinese solar stocks suffer when the price of oil declines, making solar less affordable. With oil below $80/barrel and bleak economic outlook in China, solar stocks took a heavy blow this morning. When the dollar gets stronger, as is the case today, Chinese solar makers make less from Europe, their major export market. Today solar stocks suffer a double whammy: falling oil prices and a strong dollar. For more about this phenomena, read: Solar stocks and the dollar.

On a stock level, Trina Solar (NYSE:TSL) lost -10.73% by noon followed by Yingli Green Energy (NYSE:YGE). Yingli was oversold this morning, suggesting this stock will pop when the markets turn around! Canadian Solar (NASDAQ:CSIQ) is almost as oversold as YGE. Solarfun Power (NYSE:SOLF) and industry leader Suntech Power (NYSE:STP) look attractive at current prices as well.

Stocks on the upside include China Automotive Systems (NASDAQ:CAAS). The company reported a record first quarter revenue and earnings, thanks to an improvement in gross margin. CAAS looks attractive at current stock price of $20.4. CAAS 2010 Q1 beats expectations, forecasts flat.
