12:28 EDTJKS, SPWR, YGE, FSLR, CSIQ, SCTYSolars 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.

12:08 EDTSCTYOn The Fly: Top stock stories at midday
Stocks on Wall Street were slightly higher at midday in the first trading day of a week that will be light on domestic economic data but heavy on earnings reports. Investors will be receiving profit reports from about 25% of the companies on the S&P 500 this week, making this the highest volume earnings week of this season. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no major data was released. In Europe, Greece reopened its banks three weeks after closing as the country worked out another bailout agreement. The country announced it has started the process of paying off its creditors, including the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund, with a bridge loan it just received. COMPANY NEWS: Lockheed Martin (LMT) agreed to buy the Sikorsky Aircraft business from United Technologies (UTX) for $9B, noting the price is "effectively reduced" to $7.1B after taking into account tax benefits resulting from the transaction. Shares of Lockheed, which also reported better than expected second quarter results and increased its fiscal year guidance, gained nearly 2% after the Sikorsky announcement and saying it will conduct a strategic review of its government IT infrastructure services business and technical services business... Shares of Morgan Stanley (MS) shares were little changed near noon after the bank reported earnings and revenue, excluding certain adjustments, that topped analysts' consensus forecasts... SunEdison (SUNE) announced a deal to acquire Vivint Solar (VSLR) for approximately $2.2B, payable in a combination of cash, shares of SunEdison common stock and SunEdison convertible notes. In connection with the proposed acquisition of Vivint Solar, SunEdison has entered into a definitive purchase agreement with a subsidiary of TerraForm Power (TERP) which, concurrently with the completion of SunEdison's acquisition of Vivint, will acquire Vivint Solar's rooftop solar portfolio, consisting of 523 MW expected to be installed by year-end 2015, for $922M in cash. Shares of Vivint rose 44% following the announcement, while SunEdison's stock gained 4% and TerraForm dropped 3%. Fellow residential solar installer SolarCity (SCTY), which is backed by Tesla's (TSLA) Elon Musk, rose 7% following the deal in the space. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Exelixis (EXEL), which rallied 43% after the company reported that a study of cabozantinib in metastatic renal cell carcinoma met its primary endpoint of significant improvement in progression-free survival. The shares were indicated to rise even more in early pre-market trading, but lost some of their gains after Bristol-Myers (BMY) announced that its Opdivo study was stopped early after showing superior overall survival in a Phase 3 study of previously treated patients with advanced or metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Bristol-Myers rose a bit less than 1% to trade near $70 per share after its own announcement. Also higher was PayPal (PYPL), which gained more than 5.5% in its first day of trading after being spun out of eBay (EBAY). Meanwhile, eBay shares rose over 2%. Cal-Maine Foods (CALM) dropped 8% after posting lower than expected sales and profits in its fourth quarter and warning that while it should have an adequate supply of its primary feed ingredients, the company expects that prices will be "volatile" in the year ahead. Also lower were shares of several gold miners, including Barrick Gold (ABX) and Newmont Mining (NEM), which each fell about 11%, as gold prices declined about 2% near midday. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 31.66, or 0.18%, to 18,118.11, the Nasdaq was up 9.81, or 0.19%, to 5,219.96, and the S&P 500 was up 2.82, or 0.13%, to 2,129.46.
