07:02 EDTBBYBest Buy sees no material changes in consumer spending in Q3
Sharon McCollam, Best Buy EVP, CAO and CFO, commented, "It is difficult to know, though, if the recent volatility in the financial markets will affect overall consumer spending. To date, however, we have not seen a measurable impact versus our original expectations. As such, our outlook assumes there will be no material changes in consumer spending in the third quarter. With that said, our year-over-year non-GAAP outlook for Q3 FY16 is as follows. In the Domestic business we are expecting (1) flat to low-single digit revenue growth; and (2) an approximately flat operating income rate change driven by a higher gross profit rate offset by increased SG&A due to inflation and growth-related investments. In the International business, due to the ongoing impacts of the Canadian brand consolidation and foreign currency, we are expecting (1) an International revenue decline of approximately 30% and (2) an International non-GAAP operating income rate in the range of negative 2.5% to negative 3.5%."

12:29 EDTBBYBest Buy technical comments ahead of results
The shares have been trading in a bearish price channel since a peak of price in March of this year. If the news continues to be bearish, the current trend will likely continue. Next support below the current price of $30.53 is at the $29.50 area, the low of the current price channel. If the news is a sharp negative surprise, next supports will be at $28.11, $27.17, and $26.60. If the news is a bullish surprise, the top of the price channel at $32.78 would be the first important upside objective. It would take a breakout above the channel top to turn the trend back toward bullish. Next resistance above the channel would be at $33.75.

11:09 EDTFSLRGoldman says SolarCity attractive after sharp pullback
SolarCity (SCTY) shares are climbing in the down market after Goldman Sachs contended in a note to investors today that the stock is attractive following its recent sharp retreat, The company probably won't be affected by issues that are causing investors to worry about the solar sector, the firm believes. WHAT'S NEW: Noting that SolarCity's stock had tumbled 27% in the last month before today's open, Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Lee wrote that the shares are being dragged down by worries about financing and cost of capital that are affecting the entire solar sector. However, he contended that these issues are having only a "limited" impact on SolarCity. On August 13, the company successfully sold asset-backed securities and it said that more such sales are likely to occur in the near-term, Lee noted. Meanwhile, SolarCity isn't being affected by the cost of capital increases that other solar companies are experiencing, the analyst reported. Before today's open, the stock was near a two year low, even though SolarCity's fundamentals are still "strong," Lee believes. Additionally, the largest U.S. solar trade show, which is expected to begin on September 14, could boost solar stocks, as it has historically been a catalyst for the sector, the analyst stated. SolarCity may provide guidance about the outlook for its Silevo solar panel manufacturing subsidiary in the second half of 2015, and the guidance could boost the stock, Lee believes. The risk/reward ratio of SolarCity's stock is positive, according to the analyst, who has a Conviction List Buy and $85 price target on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies in the solar space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunEdison (SUNE), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, SolarCity advanced 5.3% to $43.18.
