12:28 EDTCSIQ, SCTY, JKS, SPWR, YGE, FSLRSolars retreat after India reportedly mulls tariffs
Shares of several solar energy companies are slumping after Bloomberg reported that the Indian government found evidence that companies had dumped solar products in India. WHAT'S NEW: First Solar (FSLR) and Yingli Green (YGE) were among the foreign companies that sold solar equipment in India for much less than in their home markets, the Indian government found, according to Bloomberg. New Delhi may respond by imposing tariffs on U.S. and Chinese solar products, the news service stated. Duties would make most large scale solar projects in the country unviable, Bloomberg quoted an India-based consultant as saying. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors earlier today, Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah wrote that the risk/reward ratio on SolarCity (SCTY) and SunPower (SPWR) are attractive at current levels. SunPower should benefit from strong demand for existing projects that can be carried out by yieldcos, Shah wrote. Yieldcos are subsidiaries of energy companies that own power plants and projects and typically trade on stock exchanges. Meanwhile, if the U.S. imposes duties on solar equipment imported from Taiwan next month, SolarCity is confident that it can respond by reducing the costs of overall systems, the analyst reported. The company's price increases should be much less than the consensus outlook, according to Shah, who kept Buy ratings on SolarCity and SunPower. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, First Solar gave back 4.5% to $59.11, Yingli Green dropped 5.6% to $2.88, JinkoSolar (JKS) plunged 9.4% to $23.80, Canadian Solar (CSIQ) sank 7.4% to $24.93, SunPower slid 4.5% to $31.51, and SolarCity tumbled 6.5% to $50.85.

07:26 EDTSCTYDeutsche reiterates Buy rating, $64 target on SolarCity
Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah reiterates a Buy rating on SolarCity with a $64 price target in a research note addressing recent investor concerns. The seller of renewable energy closed Friday up 8c to $29.57. The shares are likely pricing in a worst case scenario, Shah tells investors. He believes the recent five-year extension of the federal Investment Tax Credit for solar could add $30 of incremental equity value. The analyst also believes concerns around SolarCity's availability of capital to achieve 2016 installation targets maybe overblown. The company has sufficient access to tax equity markets and can sell operating assets to achieve growth objectives, Shah contends.

16:40 EDTSCTYOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Thursday
The Dow began the session with triple digit gains thanks in part to solid earnings reports from some of America's bellwether corporations and oil prices, which approached $34 a barrel. The market was unable to hold its opening gains and eventually crossed into negative territory. Before the losses became too big the averages reversed and moved back across the flat line. With oil holding onto its gains and closing above $33 a barrel, the averages closed in positive territory ahead of the next barrage of earnings reports. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., initial jobless claims fell to 278,000 last week, versus the expected 281,000 first-time claims. Durable goods orders dropped 5.1% in December, versus expectations for a decrease of 0.7%. The core reading, which removes transportation items, was down 1.2%, versus expectations for a decline of 0.1%. The National Association of Realtors' pending home sales index for December rose 0.1%, versus expectations for it to be up 0.9%. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Facebook (FB) surged 15.5% to $109.11 after the social media giant's fourth quarter earnings and revenue beat expectations. A number of Wall Street analysts increased their price targets for the stock following the report, including Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster, who hiked his target to a "Street-high" $170 per share. Facebook management made only one mention of macro concerns for the business in 2016, significantly different than Apple's (AAPL) earnings call on Tuesday night, Munster pointed out... Caterpillar (CAT) reported better than expected quarterly earnings, excluding certain items, but its revenue came in below the consensus forecast and the heavy equipment maker warned that it does not anticipate an improvement in the world economy or commodity prices in 2016. The stock, which had declined almost 20% in the last three months prior to this morning's report, rebounded 4.7% to $61.08 after the company jumped over the lowered bar that had been set by bearish analysts... Under Armour (UA), which had similarly been the focus of concern recently for some bearish analysts, posted better than expected results on the top and bottom line and backed its fiscal year revenue forecast, proving its doubters wrong and sending its share rocketing up 22.5% to $84.00. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Intrexon (XON), Inovio (INO) and Cerus (CERS), which gained a respective 10%, 7.6% and 1.4% as the ongoing Zika virus scare brought attention to the companies' efforts fighting the illness. Also higher were SolarCity (SCTY), Sunrun (RUN) and Vivint Solar (VSLR), with the solar stocks jumping 8.5%, 20.5% and 3.6%, respectively, after the California Public Utilities Commission approved new net-metering rules. Meanwhile, Eagle Pharmaceuticals (EGRX) rose 12.2% to $74.44 after announcing commercial availability of its Bendeka injection in partnership with Teva (TEVA). Among the noteworthy losers was Yahoo (YHOO), which lost 3.2% to $28.75 despite a pre-market spike after SpringOwl Asset Management urged the company to seek an investment from a strategic partner. The news was also followed by reports that CEO Marissa Mayer has started restructuring efforts with an "invest/maintain/kill" list, as well as news that Verizon (VZ) denied a report that it had bid for the company's core Internet business. Also lower were OSI Systems (OSIS), Qualcomm (QCOM) and eBay (EBAY), which fell a respective 31.8%, 8.3% and 12.5% following their quarterly earnings reports. INDEXES: The Dow rose 125.18, or 0.79%, to 16,069.64, the Nasdaq gained 38.51, or 0.86%, to 4,506.68, and the S&P 500 advanced 10.41, or 0.55%, to 1,893.36.

08:36 EDTSCTYAttractive risk/reward developing in SolarCity, says Roth Capital
Roth Capital says that an attractive risk/reward ratio is developing in SolarCity, whose stock has dropped about 40% this year. However, the firm says that the company "will not be out of the woods" until California finalizes its net metering rules. The firm thinks the final net metering rules will be positive for SolarCity, but it's unsure about when the rules will be finalized, although it thinks they could be finalized later today. It keeps a $65 price target and Buy rating on SolarCity.
