Why SunPower Stock Is Rising Today

SunPower Corp SPWR shares are trading higher Monday amid a report that President Biden will issue a proclamation allowing the import of solar panels from four Southeast Asian countries without tariffs for 24 months.

According to a Reuters report, citing sources familiar with the matter, President Biden is set to announce a two-year solar panel tariff exemption on Monday for Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

The action reportedly comes amid concerns surrounding the impact of the U.S. Commerce Department's investigation into "whether imports of solar panels from the four Southeast Asian nations are circumventing tariffs on goods made in China."

Biden is also reportedly planning to invoke the "Defense Production Act" in response to trade disputes.
