13:42 EDTAAPLApple iPhone upgrade program off to stable start, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster noted that Citizen's Financial (CFG), Apple's (AAPL) financing partner for the iPhone upgrade program, reported that it had $220M in iPhone loans at the end of the year. That balance implies that Apple sold about 250,000 iPhones on the program since the iPhone 6S launch, said Munster, adding that he views this as a "stable start" for the program. Munster, who continues to think that program will help shrink the iPhone upgrade cycle in the U.S., keeps an Overweight rating and $179 price target on Apple shares.

11:13 EDTFSLRBarclays bullish on solar, likes SolarCity, SunPower, First Solar
Calling the outlook on solar energy "broadly positive," Barclays today initiated coverage on SolarCity (SCTY) with an Overweight rating and upgraded SunPower (SPWR) to Overweight from Neutral. The firm, however, continues to identify First Solar as its top pick in the space. SunPower and First Solar develop solar components and solar power systems, while Solar City specializes in installing solar panels on rooftops. WHAT'S NEW: Following the extension of the 30% U.S. solar investment tax credit, or ITC, Barclays analyst John Windham increased his 2020 U.S. solar demand outlook by 33% to 57 gigawatts. The extension will result in "more orderly demand growth," he believes. Meanwhile, the recent declines in energy prices has created an attractive entry point in solar stocks, the analyst stated. In the wake of the ITC extension, SolarCity will be able to meet its 2016 guidance for 40% year-over-year growth in its installations, Windham believes. Moreover, the company will be able to meet the guidance without having to increase its customer acquisition costs, he stated. Warning that SolarCity still requires constant outside capital to fund its growth, Windham nonetheless set a $49 price target on the shares. SunPower is well-capitalized and should benefit from increased U.S. solar demand, Windham believes. He increased his price target on the name to $32 from $26. First Solar is also well-capitalized, and should benefit from the U.S. government's Clean Power Plan, as utilities will look to partner with First Solar in order to meet the plan's goals, the analyst stated. The plan will "drive strong growth" for inexpensive, large-scale solar projects in new U.S. markets, such as the Southeast, Windham believes. He kept a $90 price target and Overweight rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, SunPower climbed 3.4% to $23.66, SolarCity gained 1.2% to $32.14 and First Solar rose 2% to $64.45.

06:05 EDTAAPLPiper's Munster says Apple could rally over 50% by September
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster recommends buying shares of Apple into the company's earnings report on January 26. Over the next six months, the stock will rally on the iPhone number change cycle and experience multiple expansion, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Munster believes shares of Apple could achieve upside of over 50% from current levels by the iPhone 7 launch in September. Apple has traded at a lower multiple than today in only one month, April 2013, over the past 120 months or 10 years, Munster writes. He believes the "historic multiples" being applied to Apple right now imply that bad news is being priced in. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on the iPhone maker with a $179 price target. Apple closed yesterday down 49c to $96.30.
