13:45 EDTCSIQ, FSLR, JKS, SPWR, SUNE, SCTYFirst Solar rallies after issuing optimistic FY15 outlook
Shares of solar products and services company First Solar (FSLR) are on the rise after the company issued guidance for next fiscal year that surpassed analysts' expectations. WHAT'S NEW: During the company's analyst day meeting, First Solar said that it expects FY14 earnings per share of $2.20-$2.60. Analysts' consensus for FY14 EPS stood at $3.12 prior to the company's guidance. The company sees FY14 revenue of $3.7B-$4.0B, compared to analysts' consensus of $3.77B. First Solar also said that it expects FY15 earnings per share of $4.50-$6.00, which is well above analysts' consensus of $3.68. The company expects FY15 revenue of $3.8B-$4.3B, compared with analysts' expectations of $4.24B. Also earlier today, First Solar and GE (GE) Power Conversion business announced that they are utilizing their established technology and commercial partnership to develop a more cost effective and productive utility-scale PV power plant design that combines First Solar’s CdTe modules with GE’s ProSolar 1500 Volt inverter/transformer system. First Solar also announced that it has set a world record for cadmium-telluride photovoltaic module conversion efficiency, achieving a record 17% total area module efficiency in tests performed by the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory. The new record is an increase over the prior record of 16.1% efficiency. WHAT'S NOTABLE: On February 26, the day after First Solar reported significantly weaker than expected fourth quarter results and provided lower than expected first quarter profit guidance, the company's stock fell over 9%. At that time First Solar said there were delays in "a couple" of projects for which the company had expected to recognize revenue in Q4 and that it now expects to recognize revenue from these projects this year instead. Furthermore, First Solar said then that its Q1 guidance "is not indicative" of the company's full-year outlook, as it expects to be paid later in the year for a number of projects it is currently building. The company only gave Q1 guidance at that time, not fiscal year guidance, but advised then that it would provide more detail about its full-year outlook at its analyst day. PRICE ACTION: In afternoon trading, First Solar rallied $10.04, or 17.44%, to $67.60. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other names in the solar sector include SolarCity (SCTY), SunPower (SPWR), Canadian Solar (CSIQ), Sunedison (SUNE), and JinkoSolar (JKS).

06:35 EDTSUNESunEdison Semiconductor enters into granular polysilicon supply agreement
In a regulatory filing, SunEdison Semiconductor (SEMI) disclosed that the company and SunEdison (SUNE) entered into a letter agreement regarding granular polysilicon supply matters. The agreement provides for a long-term supply by SUNE and the joint venture SMP of the company’s granular semiconductor grade polysilicon needs. The agreement provides for a fixed price per kilogram of the granular polysilicon for each year over the 10.5-year period of the agreement. The price for polysilicon decreases during the term of the Agreement. In exchange, the company has agreed to assign all of its share of the dividend and distributions from SMP to SUNE for the duration of the agreement. Because these arrangements are different than those originally agreed upon by and between SUNE’s subsidiary, SunEdison Producer Singapore Pte Ltd., and the company’s subsidiary, SunEdison Semiconductor B.V., relating to the SMP joint venture, the parties have agreed to take all necessary steps to provide for these changes in the original polysilicon supply agreement and to otherwise implement these provisions relating to SMP.
