13:45 EDTDDDStratasys falls after JPMorgan cuts on rising competition, lack of catalysts
Shares of Stratasys (SSYS) are falling after JPMorgan downgraded the company to Neutral, saying the 3D printer maker's financials could be pressured as clients curb spending and new competitors enter the space. NO CATALYSTS: Stratasys could see shrinking revenue and earnings through mid-2016 as strong competitors flood the low-end of the market and corporate clients rethink spending on the new technology, JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster argued Tuesday. Capital outlays remain muted across energy, industrials and manufacturing firms while medical device trends have also shown recent weakness, said Coster, leading him to downgrade Stratasys shares to Neutral and cut his price target to $19 from $24 on a lack of any significant catalysts for the next six months. The analyst also trimmed his outlook for 2016 earnings per share to 22c, though he sees 2017 EPS at 95c, with the above-consensus view reflecting the potential for Stratasys to benefit from cyclical demand recovery and restructuring efforts. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Stratasys have slipped roughly 4.6% to $16 while competitors 3D Systems (DDD) and ExOne (XONE) are up 5.4% and 4.5%, respectively.

11:13 EDTFSLRBarclays bullish on solar, likes SolarCity, SunPower, First Solar
Calling the outlook on solar energy "broadly positive," Barclays today initiated coverage on SolarCity (SCTY) with an Overweight rating and upgraded SunPower (SPWR) to Overweight from Neutral. The firm, however, continues to identify First Solar as its top pick in the space. SunPower and First Solar develop solar components and solar power systems, while Solar City specializes in installing solar panels on rooftops. WHAT'S NEW: Following the extension of the 30% U.S. solar investment tax credit, or ITC, Barclays analyst John Windham increased his 2020 U.S. solar demand outlook by 33% to 57 gigawatts. The extension will result in "more orderly demand growth," he believes. Meanwhile, the recent declines in energy prices has created an attractive entry point in solar stocks, the analyst stated. In the wake of the ITC extension, SolarCity will be able to meet its 2016 guidance for 40% year-over-year growth in its installations, Windham believes. Moreover, the company will be able to meet the guidance without having to increase its customer acquisition costs, he stated. Warning that SolarCity still requires constant outside capital to fund its growth, Windham nonetheless set a $49 price target on the shares. SunPower is well-capitalized and should benefit from increased U.S. solar demand, Windham believes. He increased his price target on the name to $32 from $26. First Solar is also well-capitalized, and should benefit from the U.S. government's Clean Power Plan, as utilities will look to partner with First Solar in order to meet the plan's goals, the analyst stated. The plan will "drive strong growth" for inexpensive, large-scale solar projects in new U.S. markets, such as the Southeast, Windham believes. He kept a $90 price target and Overweight rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, SunPower climbed 3.4% to $23.66, SolarCity gained 1.2% to $32.14 and First Solar rose 2% to $64.45.
05:41 EDTFSLRSunPower upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays

His top pick in the space is First Solar (FSLR). Windham initiated this morning both SolarCity (SCTY) and Sunrun (RUN) with Overweight ratings.
