13:29 EDTFSLR, SPWRFirst Solar climbs after tariffs imposed on Chinese competitors
Shares of solar energy company First Solar (FSLR) are rising after the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that it would impose duties of 18.5%-35% on imports of many Chinese solar energy products. A number of research firms wrote that First Solar would benefit from the tariffs. WHAT'S NEW: In a preliminary decision, the Commerce Department imposed duties on many Chinese solar energy imports. Additionally, the department closed a loophole by imposing the tariffs on products whose main parts come from China, but are assembled in other countries. While today's move by the Commerce Department is preliminary and is subject to changes later this year, the U.S. will begin collecting the tariffs before a final decision is made permanent, The New York Times reported. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Credit Suisse analyst Patrick Jobin wrote that the tariffs were positive for First Solar. The import duties will make First Solar's panels more cost competitive in the U.S., since its panels will not be subject to the duties, the analyst explained. Another company whose panels are likely to become more competitive in the U.S. as a result of the tariffs is SunPower (SPWR), Jobin believes. Meanwhile, Northland Securities analyst Colin Rusch wrote that First Solar and SunPower would both "clearly" benefit from the ruling. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Also today, an Indian court delayed until July 7 a hearing on First Solar's challenge of New Dehli's preliminary determination that the company had dumped solar panels in the Indian market, according to Bloomberg. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, First Solar rose 5% to $66, while SunPower jumped 8% to $35.

Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah attributes the recent weakness in the Solar space to investor concerns around increased interest rate and growth uncertainty, especially of YieldCos. Shah, however, views YieldCos as a significant growth catalyst for the solar and broader renewables sector. The analyst expects the current weakness to provide an attractive entry point for longer term investors. Publicly traded companies in the space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE).
