08:10 EDTNXPINXP Semiconductors announces partnership with Sonova
NXP Semiconductors announced that as a result of a partnership with Sonova – the leading manufacturer of innovative hearing care solutions – they have collaboratively developed Venture, a landmark next-generation hearing instrument platform, which offers users exceptional performance. Using the advanced platform, Sonova has already introduced a first family of hearing aids, Phonak Audéo V, which launched in October 2014. Venture features an ultra-low power audio processing IC, incorporating a microcontroller and dual core DSP subsystem, maximizing computational power at minimal current consumption. The device's microphone inputs have a wide dynamic range, key for the device's sound quality. Wireless audio and data streaming are managed by a separate IC, built around a Near Field Magnetic Induction radio. This technology provides a tightly-contained Body Area Network, optimized for low power consumption and low latency. Besides its application in hearing instruments, the NFMI technology provides unique features for robust wireless earbuds applications and sensor networks in and around the body. Both ICs run from a battery voltage down to 1V, and will consume around 1mW for a typical hearing aid application.

13:04 EDTJKSDeutsche, Canaccord still upbeat on SolarCity despite Q1 guidance miss
The shares of SolarCity (SCTY) are falling after the company reported a higher than expected fourth quarter loss. However, Deutsche Bank and research firm Canaccord remained upbeat on the stock in notes to investors earlier today. Solarcity installs solar energy systems at residences and businesses. BACKGROUND: SolarCity reported a Q4 loss of ($1.33) per share, versus the consensus outlook for a ($1.27) per share loss. SolarCity's Q4 revenue, however, was roughly in-line with expectations and the company said that its backlog as of the beginning of 2015 was large enough to cover much of its expected installations for the first half of the year. Additionally, SolarCity reiterated its guidance for 920-1000MW of solar installations for 2015. SolarCity estimated, however, that its Q1 per share loss would come in at ($1.65)-($1.75), versus the consensus outlook for a ($1.25) per share loss. ANALYST REACTION: Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah wrote that SolarCity had executed well, while demand for its installations is strong. Moreover, the company's cost reduction plan looks to be running ahead of schedule, and its 2015 shipments look poised to come in ahead of its guidance, Shah believes. The analyst did, however, write that SolarCity's Q4 bookings were "somewhat" below his expectations and declined versus Q3. Nonetheless, the analyst continued to identify the stock as one of his top picks in the solar sector and kept a $90 price target and Buy rating on the name. Also upbeat on SolarCity was Canaccord analyst Jed Dorsheimer. He raised his price target on the shares to $67 from $64 following its results. SolarCity has had record bookings over the last 30 days and the company should come close to setting a bookings record in Q1, the analyst wrote, adding that its deployments should ramp in Q2 and Q3 as seasonal factors subside. Dorsheimer kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, SolarCity fell 6.3% to $53.48. Other names in the solar sector also declined, with SunPower (SPWR) falling 1.8%, JinkoSolar (JKS) dropping 1.5%, and Vivint Solar (VSLR) losing 2.3%.
