13:45 EDTFSLR, SCTY, SPWR, CSIQ, SUNE, JKSFirst 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 Solarís CdTe modules with GEís 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).

07:03 EDTSUNESunEdison signs PPA with Southern Nevada Water Authority
SunEdison announced that it has signed a 20-year power purchase agreement, or PPA, with the Southern Nevada Water Authority, or SNWA. The power purchase agreement enables SNWA to lock in a significant portion of its energy costs at a fixed rate, providing an effective hedge against future increases. As part of the agreement, SunEdison will develop, construct, own and operate a 14 megawatt AC solar photovoltaic power plant, located in Clark County, Nevada. Construction of the facility will begin in early 2015 with commercial operation slated for later that year.

12:48 EDTSUNE, SPWR, JKS, CSIQ, FSLRSolar 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.
