15:21 EDTSCTYSunPower turns negative following SolarCity segment on FBN
Shares of SunPower (SPWR) briefly spiked in afternoon trading after Liz Claman of Fox Business News stated earlier on her Twitter feed: "The sun attracts billionaires! @SunPower has @WarrenBuffett investing, @solarcity has @elonmusk in." Claman appeared to have been referring to Buffett's prior investment in SunPower's 579-megawatt Solar Star development, not a new investment in its stock. The anchor spoke with SolarCity (SCTY) CEO Lyndon Rive on the network and none of the discussion focused on new events regarding Buffett or SunPower, which is now down 1% in afternoon trading near $27.24.

Japan's economy has slumped into a recession in the third quarter as a sales tax increase resulted in firms cutting inventory and capital investment, says the Wall Street Journal. According to the Wall Street Journal report, Japan's real GDP in Q3 retreated 1.6% on an annualized basis against a median forecast for a 2.25% expansion. The setback in the country's growth will likely result in Prime Minster Shinzo Abe postponing a second sales tax increase, added the Wall Street Journal. Reference Link
