13:16 EDTSPWRChinese solars fall after analyst indicates tariff could be scrapped
The shares of Chinese solar stocks are falling after research firm Cowen indicated that China's solar feed-in-tariff program could be altered or canceled in 2016. WHAT'S NEW: After meeting with "numerous solar" companies in China, Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne wrote that "there have been discussions around the future of China's national (solar) feed-in tariff program." Solar companies' fourth quarter results may exceed expectations as developers rush to complete projects "if the feed-in tariff program becomes subject to a change, reduction, replacement, or cancellation for 2016 onward," according to Osborne. Moreover, the analyst reported that his conversations indicate that the pricing of solar energy products will bottom in April or May, then be flat to up at the end of Q2. Solar companies' Q1 margins will be challenging due to price drops and foreign exchange fluctuations, the analyst added. However, Q2 orders indicate that pricing has plateaued, while foreign exchange headwinds have eased, according to Osborne. Two to three gigawatts of the five gigawatts of solar energy that China reported were installed in Q1 were probably actually completed last year and then connected to the grid this year, Osborne reported. On a positive note, the analyst, confirming recent reports says that demand for solar energy in China is accelerating. He predicts that demand will spike in Q3, as new projects may not be eligible for the feed-in tariff if they are less than 50% complete by November 30. He identified his favorite names ion the solar sector as Trina Solar (TSL), SunPower (SPWR), SunEdison (SUNE), and Amtech Systems (ASYS). PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, JinkoSolar fell 1.5% to $28.80, Trina Solar declined 3% to $12.50, Canadian Solar dropped 3% to $36, SunPower fell 2% to $32.70, JA Solar lost 2.5% to $10.30, and SunEdison dropped 1% to $25.80. .
