15:07 EDTKBHKB Home technical comments before results
In the past three months returns have been lower than the broader averages, falling by over 2.5%. The trend has been down to sideways in a range largely bounded by $18.50 at the high and $16.50 at the low. Those ranges may help us navigate post-earnings price reactions. A move lower on worse than expected news that breaks the range low at $16.50 might have bearish implications for price thereafter. In the past two years, the $16 level has held as support. Any news which could break that support could lead to further price weakness. Additional downside support would be at $15.16 , $14.32, and $13.19. If the news is positive and exceeds current expectations, we could see a run back to the top of the range at $18.50. On progressively stronger news or outlook, the following resistance levels could become additional upside objectives: $19.34, and $20.78 which is the 52-week high.
13:27 EDTSPWRSolar names rally after analyst sees China hitting target
Shares of solar energy companies are climbing after research firm Canaccord issued a positive note on the sector. WHAT'S NEW: After touring parts of Asia, Canaccord analyst Josh Baribeau wrote that he continues to believe that the Asian solar market is "strong and poised to tighten." Following a slow start, China is likely to hit its "aggressive" goal of installing 13 gigawatts of solar energy systems this year, driven by its recent policy changes, Baribeau stated. Moreover, the country will probably be "a resilient" market in coming year, the analyst added. Other markets are also staying strong, and demand and prices for solar components are likely to tighten with supply growing at a limited rate, Baribeau believes. The analyst remains upbeat about Canadian Solar's (CSIQ) project pipeline, contending that the company has been more successful in making deals overseas than its Chinese peers. He raised his price target on the shares to $48 from $44 while keeping a Buy rating on the stock. Canadian Solar is based in Canada but has manufacturing facilities in China. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Canadian Solar climbed 2.5% to $38.50. Among Chinese solar companies, JinkoSolar (JKS) rose 2% to $31, Trina Solar (TSL) gained 1.5% to $14, and China Sunergy (CSUN) advanced 1.5% to $3.10. Among American solar companies, First Solar (FSLR) gained 1% to $68 and SunPower (SPWR) rose 1% to $35.
