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.

13:27 EDTFSLR, SPWRSolar names rally after analyst sees China hitting target
Shares of solar energy companies are climbing after research firm Canaccord issued a positive note on the sector. WHAT'S NEW: After touring parts of Asia, Canaccord analyst Josh Baribeau wrote that he continues to believe that the Asian solar market is "strong and poised to tighten." Following a slow start, China is likely to hit its "aggressive" goal of installing 13 gigawatts of solar energy systems this year, driven by its recent policy changes, Baribeau stated. Moreover, the country will probably be "a resilient" market in coming year, the analyst added. Other markets are also staying strong, and demand and prices for solar components are likely to tighten with supply growing at a limited rate, Baribeau believes. The analyst remains upbeat about Canadian Solar's (CSIQ) project pipeline, contending that the company has been more successful in making deals overseas than its Chinese peers. He raised his price target on the shares to $48 from $44 while keeping a Buy rating on the stock. Canadian Solar is based in Canada but has manufacturing facilities in China. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Canadian Solar climbed 2.5% to $38.50. Among Chinese solar companies, JinkoSolar (JKS) rose 2% to $31, Trina Solar (TSL) gained 1.5% to $14, and China Sunergy (CSUN) advanced 1.5% to $3.10. Among American solar companies, First Solar (FSLR) gained 1% to $68 and SunPower (SPWR) rose 1% to $35.
