13:05 EDTCSIQ, JKS, TSL, CSUN, JASOSolars 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.

12:48 EDTJKS, CSIQSolar stocks rise after successful IPO in space
Shares of solar energy companies are rising after a solar energy company's subsidiary surged on its first day of trading. WHAT'S NEW: The shares of SunEdison (SUNE) subsidiary TerraForm (TERP) are surging 36% in early afternoon trading. TerraForm Power opened at $33.26 and was trading near $34 per share at midday, after its initial public offering priced at $25 per share. TerraForm was formed to own and operate assets that generate clean power and the company plans to pay dividends. In a note to investors yesterday, Josh Baribeau, an analyst at Canaccord Genuity, wrote that TerraForm is a Yieldco. Subsidiaries of energy companies that own power plants and projects, Yieldcos typically trade on stock exchanges. Noting that TerraForm's IPO had priced at the high end of its expected range yesterday and was well oversubscribed, Baribeau wrote that this outcome reflects the strong demand for Yieldcos among investors. The Yieldcos provide investors with yield which is in high demand in today's low interest rate environment, the analyst stated. Additionally, as a result of the strong demand for Yieldcos' stocks, they provide their parent companies with "cheap and abundant capital," the analyst stated. SunEdison and TerraForm will grow their combined cash available for distributions at a faster rate than their target of 15% over the next three years, helping SunEdison's stock rise, the analyst stated. He kept a $30 price target and Buy rating on SunEdison. WHAT'S NOTABLE: A number of solar energy companies that own solar projects could form Yieldcos, research firm Trefis wrote in a Forbes column last month. Like Canaccord's Baribeau, Trefis believes that Yieldcos provide their parent companies with a cheap source of funding. Yieldcos also distribute most of their cash through dividends, Trefis stated. The firm named First Solar (FSLR) and SunPower (SPWR) as companies that could launch their own Yieldcos. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Terraform jumped 36% to $34 and SunEdison was down 1% to $22.76. Meanwhile, First Solar rose 1.4% to $62.29, SunPower climbed 2.7% to $38.71, JinkoSolar gained 2.8% to $26.75, and Canadian Solar (CSIQ) advanced 3% to $28.71.
