16:16 EDTMYGN, TSL, AZN, STP, NSRGY, TRGT, YGE, TIF, RIO, BHPOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were lower on concerns of slowing growth in China. The futures barely reacted to February U.S. housing data, which showed starts were lower than expected but building permits were higher. The futures action led to a lower open for the broader market. The averages found a level in the first 30 minutes of trading where they sat and eventually began to drift higher. The market moved generally higher until the last hour of the session but the averages were never able to retake the baseline to continue their six day winning streak... ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., homebuilders began construction on a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 698,000 homes in February, down 1.1% from a month ago. Building permits jumped 5.1%, versus expectations for an increase of 0.6%. In China, a report said that home prices dropped in 45 Chinese cities last month and the country increased its gas and diesel prices for the second time in less than six weeks... MARKET NEWS: BHP Billiton (BHP) was widely quoted as stating that Chinese iron ore demand growth was "flattening," but the company came out and said that the slowdown had been discussed before and was not new information. Also, both BHP and rival Rio Tinto (RIO) confirmed plans to expand production in China even further. Still, BHP's confirmation along with other signals of a slowdown in China was attributed as a significant catalyst for today's market pull-back... Saudi Arabia said it is ready to meet any shortfalls in global oil supplies which, along with China's news, caused oil prices to fall 2%, weighing on the Energy sector of the S&P... Amazon.com (AMZN) moved up 3.67% following its $775M purchase of Kiva Systems, a maker of robots and other material handling technology... MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Tiffany (TIF), up $4.59, or 6.68%, to $73.27, after its earnings missed expectations but its FY12 guidance beat the Street's view. Also higher were a number of Chinese solar companies, including Yingli Green Energy (YGE), up 46c, or 12.07%, to $4.27, Suntech (STP), up 44c, or 14.06%, to $3.57, and Trina Solar (TSL), up 61c, or 7.85%, to $8.38, following the U.S. Commerce Department's decision to impose tariffs of less than 5% on the companies, which was well below the 20% to 30% that was forecast by some analysts. Noteworthy losers included Targacept (TRGT), down $2.22, or 29.96%, to $5.19, after it abandoned plans to seek approval for a depression drug it was developing in partnership with AstraZeneca (AZN), and Myriad Genetics (MYGN), down $1.33, or 5.19%, to $24.31, after the Supreme Court ruled that two patents held by Nestle (NSRGY) for certain personalized medicine products are invalid because the patents utilize "laws of nature" without adding significant additional features to those laws... INDICES: The Dow fell 68.94, or 0.52%, to 13,170.19; the Nasdaq lost 4.17, or 0.14%, to 3,074.15; and the S&P 500 dropped 4.23, or 0.30%, to 1,405.52.

11:09 EDTTSL, YGEGoldman 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.
