15:23 EDTSPWRRBC says sell First Solar as earnings power overestimated
RBC Capital cut its rating on solar energy company First Solar (FSLR) to Underperform, its equivalent of a "sell" rating, in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: First Solar's earnings power is significantly below analysts' consensus estimate and the company's guidance, RBC Capital analyst Mahesh Sanganeria wrote. The company's profits will be limited due to the lower selling prices of its modules and its declining gross margin, the analyst stated. Moreover, even if demand for modules is very strong, First Solar's sales will be limited by its capacity, Sanganeria contended. Furthermore, First Solar's cost advantage over competing modules has eroded and may disappear completely, partly due to significant declines in polysilicon prices and manufacturing efficiency improvements, the analyst stated. Sanganeria downgraded the shares to Underperform from Sector Perform and lowered the price target on the stock to $34 from $54. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In contrast, UBS was upbeat on the outlook for another name in the solar sector, SunEdison (SUNE), in its own note to investors today. SunEdison is may begin paying a dividend and could expand into Canadian renewable projects, UBS analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith wrote. The company may acquire Canadian assets for relatively cheap prices, said Dumoulin-Smith, who kept a $32 price target and Buy rating on SunEdison. PRICE ACTION: In afternoon trading, First Solar dropped 6.7% to $51.41 and SunEdison slipped 1.7% to $30.14. CORRECTION: This story corrects an earlier one to clarify that 8point3 Energy Partners is a growth-oriented limited partnership formed by First Solar and SunPower (SPWR) to own, operate and acquire solar energy generation projects. TerraForm Global is the diversified, dividend growth-oriented company formed to acquire clean energy generation assets from SunEdison.

10:42 EDTKRKroger CEO says consumer spending still 'fragile'
Kroger (KR) CEO W. Rodney McMullen says the company will continue to spend on stores. McMullen said it will be "fascinating" to see how Whole Foods (WFM) customers react to its plans for a smaller, lower-cost format. Kroger's CEO says food inflation has been tracking a 1%-2% and the company expects it to continue at that level. McMullen says Kroger looks at "just about anything that is available" in terms of M&A, but doesn't bid on many things. McMullen is speaking on CNBC.

08:33 EDTNVDA, AMDMorgan Stanley cautious in near-term on PC names
Morgan Stanley is more cautious on PC names near-term, given PC and HDD inventory builds quarter-to-date and weaker April ODM sales. The firm's analyst team continues to believe Q1 was a bottom in year-over-year growth, but now expects normal Q2 seasonal growth instead of above normal and thinks any recovery will likely be delayed until Q3. Morgan Stanley is cautiously optimistic on Western Digital (WDC) due to its diverse revenue drivers, sees value creation catalysts for Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and believes Microsoft (MSFT) shares reflect the challenging PC market and Win 10. The firm is more cautious on semis such as NVIDIA (NVDA) given higher valuations, share loss at Advanced Micro (AMD), potential 2H margin pressure at Intel (INTC), and Morgan is cautious on PC DRAM stocks near-term due to weaker pricing.
