13:04 EDTSCTYDeutsche, Canaccord still upbeat on SolarCity despite Q1 guidance miss
The shares of SolarCity (SCTY) are falling after the company reported a higher than expected fourth quarter loss. However, Deutsche Bank and research firm Canaccord remained upbeat on the stock in notes to investors earlier today. Solarcity installs solar energy systems at residences and businesses. BACKGROUND: SolarCity reported a Q4 loss of ($1.33) per share, versus the consensus outlook for a ($1.27) per share loss. SolarCity's Q4 revenue, however, was roughly in-line with expectations and the company said that its backlog as of the beginning of 2015 was large enough to cover much of its expected installations for the first half of the year. Additionally, SolarCity reiterated its guidance for 920-1000MW of solar installations for 2015. SolarCity estimated, however, that its Q1 per share loss would come in at ($1.65)-($1.75), versus the consensus outlook for a ($1.25) per share loss. ANALYST REACTION: Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah wrote that SolarCity had executed well, while demand for its installations is strong. Moreover, the company's cost reduction plan looks to be running ahead of schedule, and its 2015 shipments look poised to come in ahead of its guidance, Shah believes. The analyst did, however, write that SolarCity's Q4 bookings were "somewhat" below his expectations and declined versus Q3. Nonetheless, the analyst continued to identify the stock as one of his top picks in the solar sector and kept a $90 price target and Buy rating on the name. Also upbeat on SolarCity was Canaccord analyst Jed Dorsheimer. He raised his price target on the shares to $67 from $64 following its results. SolarCity has had record bookings over the last 30 days and the company should come close to setting a bookings record in Q1, the analyst wrote, adding that its deployments should ramp in Q2 and Q3 as seasonal factors subside. Dorsheimer kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, SolarCity fell 6.3% to $53.48. Other names in the solar sector also declined, with SunPower (SPWR) falling 1.8%, JinkoSolar (JKS) dropping 1.5%, and Vivint Solar (VSLR) losing 2.3%.

16:31 EDTSCTYSolarCity says majority of financing secured for 2015 needs
SolarCity said, "Following strong growth in 2014, we entered 2015 with high visibility into our full year guidance for 920 - 1,000 MW Deployed. After booking almost 300 MW more than we deployed in 2014, we began the year with a backlog big enough to cover much of our expected first half installations. Ending the year with residential deployments at an annualized run rate of ~600 MW, we have significantly ramped up our installation capacity and plan to scale this beyond 1 GW by year-end even before considering commercial. Lastly, we have secured a majority of the financing commitments required to fund all of our 2015 needs."

14:54 EDTSCTYSolarCity technical notes before earnings news
Shares have been trading in a range bound largely by $47 at the low and $59 at the high for the last several months. A break of either end of this range following results will resolve the range either bearishly or bullishly. If the news is bullish and there is a breakout above $59, next resistance is at $63.30 and then at $65.60. If the news disappoints, first major support below would be at the 50-day moving average at $52.53. It would take exceptionally bearish news to push the shares to the range low. The low of the range was also previously support in the early part of last year. The 52-week low is at $45.79.
