10:15 EDTJKS, SOL, SPWR, YGESunPower, peers advance after analyst ups price target
Shares of solar energy company SunPower (SPWR) and other names in the sector are climbing after research firm RW Baird increased its price target on SunPower to $48 from $42. Sunower develops solar power plants and sells solar equipment. WHAT'S NEW: SolarCity's (SCTY) decision to begin manufacturing solar panels, via its acquisition of privately held solar panel maker Silevo, further validates SunPower's business model, Baird analyst Ben Kallo wrote in a note to investors earlier today. SunPower should benefit from increasing demand for solar panels, as well as cost reductions and capacity expansion, the analyst predicted. SunPower should also benefit from increases in the efficiency of its modules and sales of more of its projects, Kallo believes. Meanwhile, the company should create value for shareholders over time by either selling its projects or placing them in a yieldco, and by potentially spinning off its residential business, the analyst believes. Yieldcos are subsidiaries of energy companies that own power plants and projects and typically trade on stock exchanges. Kallo kept an Outperform rating on SunPower. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Earlier this month, JPMorgan and Brean Capital downgraded SunPower based on valuation. These downgrades ignore SunPower's long-term value, Kallo contended in his note today. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, SunPower climbed 2% to $40, JinkoSolar (JKS) gained 1% to $29.50, Yingli Green Energy (YGE) advanced 1.5% to $3.60, and ReneSola (SOL) gained 1% to $2.90.

18:06 EDTSPWRSunPower announces reorganization, sees $15M-$25M restructuring charge in Q4
SunPower disclosed in a regulatory filing that on November 14, SunPower announced a reorganization plan aimed towards realigning resources consistently with SunPower's global strategy and improving its overall operating efficiency and cost structure. In connection with this plan, which is expected to be completed by the end of fiscal 2015, SunPower expects approximately 85 to 115 employees to be affected, primarily in Europe, representing approximately 1% to 2% of SunPower's global workforce. SunPower expects to incur restructuring charges totaling approximately $15M to $25M, principally composed of severance benefits, lease and related termination costs, and other associated costs. A substantial portion of such charges are expected to be incurred in the Q4, and SunPower expects more than 90% of total charges to be cash. The actual timing and costs of the plan may differ from SunPower’s current expectations and estimates due to a number of factors, including uncertainties related to required consultations with employee representatives as well as other local labor law requirements and mandatory processes in the relevant jurisdictions.

15:21 EDTSPWRSunPower 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.
