11:09 EDTSCTYGoldman 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.
