It is logical to assume that Joey Klender might not have done deep due diligence on his post. Hanwha is one of the major solar cell producers in the world:
Hanwha Q CELLS
Through Hanwha Machinery they are highly capable industrial process suppliers and processors. So, a deal to supply QC on final cell production is entirely logical, but the deal is quite likely to be only the first public indication of much more extensive future plans. They are, for instance, among the world's leading heat treatment specialists, whcih can come in handy when dealing with, say, giant sized aluminum castings.

I will wager there is a far broader relationship under way.
Their market cap is only a little over $1b. Could be a nice little addition.

Honestly I think it would be about 50/50. People talk big about "moving to TX or FL for tax purposes!", but most people aren't really interested in actually living there.

Have you been to Austin lately? Nothing but Californians flocking here. And when asked, do you know what the top reason for moving to Texas? Lower taxes and better QOL. I wish the Californians would stay home in "Paradise"( their words not mine).

None of these are "Blue" counties, in fact, some of them are quite hard-right Libertarian leaning, and profess to prefer succession, to form the independent state of "Jefferson".
My point is that they could be predicted to buck Sacramento. Orange and Riverside are pretty populous, the others, not so much.
Kern isn't too trivial either. Some of the others I'd never even heard of. I assume you meant secession?

That isn't what the statistics show:

Florida, Arizona, Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina (in that order) are the leaders for net US domestic migration.

Meanwhile...

New York, California, Illinois, New Jersey, Louisiana (in that order) are the biggest losers.
That's out of necessity as wealth and income inequality ramps nationwide. It's concentrated in those areas so the masses get wedged out. Doesn't mean the average top engineering graduate wants to live in the Carolinas.

Wow, hard to beat that view in the US. Maybe I should move to CA :cool:

This is my view from home in Seattle. Care to reconsider?

Speak for yourself! Oh, you did. There are several substantial benefits to living in, say, Austin or say, the Space Coast. Even Miami and Dallas have distinct benefits.

For the record I am a Native Son, born in SoCal, raised in the Bay area in my early years.
Many people move for many reasons. Generalizing really does not work well.

Newsom briefing: If all continues well, Phase 2 will start this Friday. He mentioned retail but previously he said Phase 2 included manufacturing so hopefully it can restart Friday as well. He will hopefully clarify it before the briefing is done.

Said Bay area can be more strict if they want to be which doesn't sound encouraging for Fremont Friday.

What do they say about the weather forecast for Seattle.

If you can see Mount Rainer, it's going to rain.
If you can't see Mount Rainer, it is raining.
I'm excited for my first visit to Seattle once the all-clear is sounded(or really when I get a positive antibody test:)). Hopefully in early June.

As amazing as both regions look....as an East Coaster I gotta say Los Angeles is automatically excluded since the seasons don't change. That's just an insane way to live.

Fair Warning: Visiting Seattle during summer will lead to a major desire to live here. I've actually had multiple friends visit me here for the first time during summer and then proceed to move here the following spring. If you get sucked in be prepared to do lots of traveling during the winter months as most of us do here ;)
