13:29 EDTSPWRSunEdison selloff continues, shares down 23%
Shares of SunEdison (SUNE) continue to be weak and are down 23% to $3.49 in afternoon trading. Dan Loeb's Third Point last night disclosed it no longer owns the stock while David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital disclosed a reduced stake. Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah lowered his price target for SunEdison this morning to $16 saying language in Vivint Solar's (VSLR) quarterly filing around SunEdison debt financing could concern some investors. SunEdison's solar peers are also weak, with SunPower (SPWR), First Solar (FSLR) and SolarCity (SCTY) all in the red.

14:48 EDTSPWRSunPower analyst meeting increases optimism, says Raymond James
Raymond James said SunPower's (SPWR) analyst meeting today was upbeat and increased optimism in the story. Analyst Pavel Molchanov,said SunPower has a solid position in the industry, a supported balance sheet from Total, and leverage to residential leasing. Molchanov said SunPower tends to be the bellwether of the group and is not SunEdison (SUNE), which has the most strained balance sheet in the group. The analyst rates SunPower an Outperform with a $32 price target on shares.
10:44 EDTSPWRAxiom says sell SunEdison as investor confidence in management wanes
Research firm Axiom downgraded solar energy company SunEdison (SUNE) to Sell from Neutral in a note to investors today, saying that investors no longer trust the company and that its fundamentals look set to deteriorate further. WHAT'S NEW: Investors no longer believe SunEdison's guidance because a number of the company's previous promises have not materialized, Axiom analyst Gordon Johnson II contended. Specifically, on October 7, SunEdison said it would sell 50 megawatts to 70 megawatts of projects to third parties at gross margins of 18%-19%, but in the third quarter it sold 41 MW of projects to third parties at a gross margin of just 9.6%, according to Johnson. Additionally, SunEdison's yieldco, Terraform Power (TERP), promised that it would provide an estimate of its standalone value but has failed to do so, the analyst stated. Moreover, Terraform Power had said that it had no obligation to invest in SunEdison's existing projects, but it announced that it was investing another $388M in existing projects, the analyst stated. Given SunEdison's $11.7B in debt and its inability to sell projects at a gross margin of 18%-19%, its fundamentals seem poised to worsen, unless it can find cheaper funding sources, predicted Johnson, who set a $2 price target on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Another major solar energy company, SunPower (SPWR), today provided fiscal 2016 revenue guidance of $3.3B-$3.5B, versus the consensus outlook of $3.03B, in conjunction with its analyst day meeting. A much smaller player in the solar space, Solar3D (SLTD), increased its fiscal year sales guidance, with its CEO pointing to its "success in dominating key solar markets in California and Nevada." PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, SunEdison slipped 1% to $4.86, which is well above its low for the day of $4.06, which is also its 52-week low. Meanwhile, SunPower climbed 3.5% to $26.54 and Solar3D rose nearly 6% to $2.95.

11:31 EDTSPWRSunEdison sinks after UBS cuts price target to $6
Shares of SunEdison (SUNE) are selling off for a second straight day after UBS cut its price target on the stock to $6. The seller of photovoltaic energy solutions declined yesterday after reporting a larger than expected quarterly loss. UBS analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith attributed the post-earnings share selloff to "five key factors," including lower than expected margins on retained projects, management's confidence on the pending Vivint Solar (VSLR) acquisition while a renegotiation of the deal would be perceived positively, and LAP Holdings seeking no less than $150M in damages after SunEdison cancelled its acquisition of the Latin America hydropower and wind development maintenance company. Dumoulin-Smith cut his price target for SunEdison this morning to $6 from $9 and kept a Neutral rating on the name. SunEdison is down 15%, or 88c, to $4.89 in late morning trading. Following the stock lower are peers SolarCity (SCTY), SunPower (SPWR) and First Solar (FSLR).
