15:23 EDTFSLRRBC 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.

06:46 EDTFSLRFirst Solar downgraded to Underperform from Sector Perform at RBC Capital
RBC Capital downgraded First Solar to Underperform and lowered its price target on the stock to $34 from $54. The firm believes First Solar's cost advantage over C-Si module producers is diminishing and that its earnings power is significantly below previous guidance and consensus. RBC Capital rolled out 2016 estimates of $1.37/$3.4B, versus consensus of $3.48/$4.1B and guidance of $3.50-$5.00/$3.8B-$4.5B. The firm sees limited upside to its estimates given First Solar's high exposure to utility scale projects and long-lead time and development cycles, combined with lower ASPs and gross margins to third-party module estimates.

12:01 EDTFSLRSouthern Company subsidiary acquires 103-MW Georgia solar project
Southern Company (SO) subsidiary Southern Power acquired the 103-megawatt Butler solar facility from Community Energy in Georgia. The project, which was initially developed by Community Energy was selected by Southern Company subsidiary Georgia Power in a competitive process through the nationally recognized Georgia Power Advanced Solar Initiative. The facility, which will be located on approximately 1,070 acres in Taylor County, Georgia, is expected to enter commercial operation in the fourth quarter of 2016. Construction is slated to begin in September 2015, with First Solar (FSLR) managing the building, operations and maintenance of the facility. The Butler solar facility is expected to consist of more than 1 million of First Solar's thin-film photovoltaic solar modules mounted on single-axis tracking tables. The electricity and associated renewable energy credits generated by the facility will be sold under a 30-year power purchase agreement with Georgia Power, which will have the option to keep or sell the RECs, for the benefit of its customers or renewable energy programs.

07:05 EDTBBYBest Buy CEO says strategy resonating with customers
Hubert Joly, Best Buy president and CEO, said, "In the Domestic business, against a backdrop where the NPD-reported consumer electronics categories, which represent approximately 65% of our revenue, were down 5.3%7, our comparable sales, excluding the impact of installment billing, declined only 0.7% as we continued to take advantage of strong product cycles in large screen televisions and iconic mobile phones and continued growth in the major appliance category. Throughout the quarter, our strategy of delivering ĎAdvice, Service and Convenience at Competitive Pricesí continued to resonate with our customers. While merchandising, marketing and operational execution were the tactical drivers of our better-than-expected first quarter financial results, strategically, we believe the cumulative impact of the progress we have made to improve our multi-channel customer experience is what has allowed us to consistently outperform the market. We have made real progress and it is showing up in our results."
