13:05 EDTJASO, JKS, CSUN, CSIQ, TSLSolars fall after Canadian Solar misses expectations
Shares of a number Chinese solar energy companies are falling after one of the names in the sector, Canadian Solar (CSIQ), reported lower than expected earnings and provided lower than expected first quarter revenue guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Canadian Solar's fourth quarter earnings per share came in at 39c, versus analysts' consensus outlook of 41c. However, the company's revenue was slightly higher than expected. Canadian Solar noted that its solar module shipments had jumped to 621 megawatts last quarter, up from 478 megawatts in the previous quarter. However, its gross margin dropped to 19.5% in Q4, down from 20.4% in Q3. For Q1, Canadian Solar expects its revenue to come in at $415M-$430M, versus the consensus outlook of $517.78M. On its earnings conference call, the company stated that its Q1 sales have been hurt by the severe weather conditions in North America, which caused about $100M of its revenue to be delayed until future quarters. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Calling pollution a major problem, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang earlier today said the government would "declare war" on smog, Bloomberg reported. This emphasis on combating pollution could affect the pace of China's solar energy push. Earlier this year, China's government reported that Beijing plans to accelerate the development of solar energy in an effort to reduce its air pollution. Meanwhile, another company in the sector, JinkoSolar (JKS), yesterday reported significantly stronger than expected Q4 results. On another negative note for the sector, Chinese solar equipment producer Chaori Solar said today that it would not be able to make interest payments on bonds due on Friday, according to Reuters. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, JinkoSolar sank 5.4% to $34, Trina Solar (TSL) gave back 1.8% to $16.07, China Sunergy (CSUN) fell 2.2% to $5.60, JA Solar (JASO) dropped 5.8% to $10.15, and Canadian Solar tumbled 12.5% to $38.20.
