10:38 EDTFSLR, SPWR, CSIQ, SUNE, JKSFirst Solar sinks after results miss expectations
Shares of First Solar (FSLR) are tumbling after the company reported significantly weaker than expected fourth quarter results and provided lower than expected first quarter profit guidance. First Solar develops photovoltaic solar modules and builds solar power plants. WHAT'S NEW: First Solar's fourth quarter earnings per share, excluding some items, came in at 89c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of 99c. The company's revenue also came in below expectations. Moreover, First Solar provided first quarter EPS guidance of 50c-60c, versus the consensus outlook of 84c. The solar energy company's first quarter revenue guidance was $800M-$900M, versus the consensus outlook of $898.25M. First Solar stated that its fourth quarter revenue was negatively affected by the timing of revenue generation from several of its projects. There were delays in "a couple" projects for which the company had expected to recognize revenue in Q4, the company stated. As a result of the delays, First Solar now expects to recognize revenue from these projects this year instead. Moreover, the company obtained initial revenue from several projects in the third quarter, rather than last quarter, the company added. Furthermore, First Solar stated 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. First Solar will provide more detail about its full-year outlook at its Analyst Day on March 19, the company stated. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Citigroup analyst Shahriar Pourreza wrote that First Solar's results were weaker than expected due to timing issues. The company's Analyst Day, where it should provide 2014 guidance, will be a "key catalyst, and investors will now likely focus on the event, wrote the analyst. Pourreza, who added that First Solar's Q1 guidance could be conservative, kept a $63 price target and Buy rating on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other names in the sector include SunPower (SPWR), Canadian Solar (CSIQ), Sunedison (SUNE), and JinkoSolar (JKS). PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, First Solar sank $6.17, or 10.7%, to $51.80.
