10:08 EDTFSLR, SCTYFirst Solar drops after Goldman cuts rating to Sell
Shares of First Solar (FSLR) are sinking after Goldman Sachs downgraded the stock to Sell in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: First Solar is poorly positioned, as the company "has virtually no exposure" to the rapidly growing rooftop solar market, Goldman Sachs analyst Brian Lee wrote. The company, which gets almost all of its revenue from utilities, is likely to see its earnings decline, the analyst predicted. He downgraded the stock to Sell from Buy and cut his price target on the shares to $45 from $61. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Lee is much more upbeat about the outlook for another name in the solar sector, Solar City (SCTY). He upgraded the stock to Conviction Buy from Neutral, citing the company's large exposure to the rooftop solar market. Lee, who expects the rooftop solar market to expand at a 45%-plus compound annual growth rate in the U.S. until 2016, raised his price target on Solar City to $80 from $65. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, First Solar sank $3.70, or 6.5%, to $53.05, while Solar City jumped $7, or 12%, to $66.25.

12:48 EDTFSLRSolar 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.
