12:36 EDTJCPAbercrombie, American Eagle sink after analyst downgrades
Shares of specialty teen apparel retailers Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) and American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) are falling after a number of analysts issued negative notes on the companies. WHAT'S NEW: Oppenheimer analyst Anna Andreeva downgraded Abercrombie & Fitch to Perform from Outperform. The company's earnings outlook has become less clear as its U.S. brand has not yet become popular, and retail brand turnarounds usually take awhile, Oppenheimer analyst Anna Andreeva wrote in a note to investors. Additionally, Abercrombie's international business, which has deteriorated further this year, faces "mounting uncertainty,” the analyst stated. The analyst slashed her price target on the name to $30 from $50. Meanwhile, Barclays analyst Matthew McClintock downgraded American Eagle Outfitters to Equal Weight from Overweight. McClintock has become more pessimistic about the outlook for American Eagle's comparative store sales in the second half of 2014, given recent data points from a number of retailers, including Abercrombie & Fitch, Kohl's (KSS), Wal-Mart (WMT), J.C. Penney (JCP), and Ann Inc. (ANN). The analyst said he saw no reason why American Eagle should significantly outperform the overall apparel sector. McClintock cut his price target on the name to $11 from $15. Meanwhile, the analyst lowered his rating on the Softline Retail sector to Negative from Positive, as he believes that the sector, which includes companies that sell products like apparel, towels, and jewelry - is facing structural difficulties that are likely to persist for the next several years. Separately, research firm Janney Capital downgraded Abercrombie to Neutral from Buy in a note to investors today. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Abercrombie & Fitch sank 3.5% to $28.50 and American Eagle dropped 4% to $12.40.

10:26 EDTFSLR, SPWRSolar names retreat after First Solar results miss expectations
Shares of a number of solar companies are falling after one of the leading companies in the sector, First Solar (FSLR), announced weaker than expected results. WHAT'S NEW: First Solar reported Q3 earnings per share, excluding a one-time tax benefit, of 61c, compared with analysts' consensus estimate of 64c. The company reported Q3 revenue of $899M, versus the consensus outlook of about $1B. First Solar reiterated its fiscal 2014 EPS guidance of $2.40-$2.80, versus the consensus outlook of $2.61. However, the company trimmed its full-year sales guidance to $3.6B-$3.9B from $3.7B-$4B. The company added that it was on track to meet or exceed its bookings goal for the full year. Additionally, First Solar announced that its potential bookings opportunities had risen to 13.7 gigawatts, versus 12.7 gigawatts in Q2, due to continued growth in the U.S., Latin America and India. “Following the project delays experienced in the prior quarter, our third quarter earnings have improved, and we continue to make progress towards our financial targets for the year," said First Solar CEO Jim Hughes. First Solar is not prepared to pursue the launch of a YieldCo at this time, Hughes reported. YieldCos are subsidiaries of energy companies that own power plants and projects and typically trade on stock exchanges. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On October 20, JPMorgan wrote that the recent sell-off in solar stocks was unjustified, as Q3 results up to that time showed that the sector's fundamentals had changed little. The firm named First Solar as one of its favorite names in the sector. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, First Solar (FSLR) sank 11% to $50.15. Meanwhile, SunPower (SPWR) fell 2.5% to $29.57, Sunedison (SUNE) declined 1.6% to $18, Canadian Solar (CSIQ) lost 3% to $30, and JinkoSolar (JKS) gave back 2.7% to $22.74.
