12:16 EDTJKS, TSL, FSLR, CSIQ, JASOCanadian Solar soars after results top estimates
Shares of solar power company Canadian Solar (CSIQ) are soaring after the company posted better than expected second quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Canadian Solar reported Q2 earnings per share of 95c and revenue of $623.8M, easily beating consensus estimates of 58c and $577.65M, respectively. Q2 solar module shipments were 646 MW, compared to 500 MW in the first quarter and versus guidance in the range of 600 MW to 630 MW. Gross margin was 19.0%, compared to 14.7% in Q1, and versus guidance in the range of 17% to 19%. CEO Dr. Shawn Qu said, "Our second quarter shipments and revenue came in above the high end of our guidance led by strong module demand out of Japan, Germany, the UK and the US, as well as progress in the build-out of our utility-scale solar projects in Canada. Gross margin in the second quarter improved significantly to 19.0% compared to 14.7% in the first quarter of 2014, reflecting solid execution of our total solutions business strategy, as well as higher module ASP and shipment volume. We believe we remain one of the solar industry's best positioned companies given our diverse manufacturing footprint and advanced-stage project pipeline in Canada, Japan, the U.S., and China. We are making steady progress in key developing markets in Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Africa, and we continue to see robust demand for our solar energy solutions products and services across all geographies and market segments." WHAT'S NOTABLE: Canadian Solar forecast Q3 revenue of $760M-$810M, versus consensus of $784.75M. Q3 gross margin was seen at 19%-21%, with module shipments of 720MW-750MW. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, research firm Northland said it was encouraged by Canadian Solar's Q2 report and expects backlog value to increase as lower cost of capital comes into the market. It said the company's module pricing and margin are holding up better than spot market data suggests, primarily due to its limited exposure to the China module market. The firm also said execution on its project business is improving and expects Street estimates to be revised higher. Northland had an Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Canadian Solar rose $4.47, or about 18%, to $29.44 on nearly three times its average daily trading volume. Including today's advance, the stock is up approximately 150% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the solar space include: Trina Solar (TSL), JA Solar (JASO), First Solar (FSLR), and JinkoSolar (JKS), all of which are higher on the session.
