10:26 EDTJKS, TSL, CSIQ, SCTY, FSLR, YGESolar stocks bounce back after analyst says China not cutting target
Shares of solar energy companies are rebounding after dropping sharply on Friday. Today's bounce came after Deutsche Bank wrote that China is not reducing its 2014 solar energy target, as had been reported on Friday. WHAT'S NEW: Bloomberg reported on Friday that China had decided to reduce its solar energy generation target to 10 gigawatts from 14 gigawatts, Deutsche Bank analyst Vishai Shah stated in a note to investors earlier today. However, Shah says hat the country is actually maintaining its 14 gigawatt target. A press release from China's National Energy Administration, upon which the Bloomberg story had been based, referred to previous targets, Shah indicated. Moreover, solar projects in China are being approved without regard to quotas and China exceeded its 2013 solar energy target by a significant amount, added the analyst. He reiterated Buy ratings on Trina Solar (TSL), Yingli Green Energy (YGE), and SolarCity (SCTY). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Trina Solar jumped 5% to $14.30, Yingli Green rallied 5.3% to $6.17, SolarCity advanced 1% to $71.10, JinkoSolar (JKS) gained 2.5% to $40.45, Canadian Solar (CSIQ) rose 3.7% to $38.65, and First Solar (FSLR) climbed 2.6% to $49.90.

17:53 EDTSCTY, CSIQSolar stocks drop after SolarCity reports Q4 results
Solar stocks followed SolarCity (SCTY) down after the company reported its fourth quarter results and gave guidance for the first quarter and fiscal 2016. WHAT'S NEW: SolarCity reported Q4 earnings per share of ($2.37) against analyst expectations of ($2.59), and Q4 revenue of $115M, against consensus estimates of $105.62M. The company reported Q4 installations up 54% to 272 mega watts. Q4 commercial installations were up 82% to 51 MW while residential installations were up 49% to 221 MW. Operating Lease and Solar Energy Incentive revenue was up 53% to $75M in Q4. SolarCity sees Q1 adjusted EPS ($2.65)-($2.55), against analyst expectations of ($2.36). The company sees Q1 installations up 18% year-over-year to 180 MW. This represents a higher-than-usual seasonal slowdown due to decision to end Nevada operations and renewed focus on cash conversion cycle, particularly in longer lead-time commercial projects. The company also continues to target 1.25 gigawatts installed in FY16. The company noted that the ITC extension provides growth tailwinds. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In the earnings press release, management noted, "We closed out a strong 2015 with installations growing 73% to a record 870 MW and costs falling to new lows, though we fell short of our installation goals more than once. We are not happy with these results, and recognize our need to revamp our guidance methodology to avoid any potential shortfalls going forward. Notably, residential has consistently performed above our expectations over the last year, and we missed guidance largely on commercial installations. While we had expected the introduction in mid-2015 of a new guidance methodology that incorporated only commercial projects that were already under construction to minimize risk, clearly this wasn't sufficient. With larger projects, particularly ground-mount, this methodology still leaves sufficient time for delays to push construction past deadlines. Going forward, we plan on removing from guidance any large projects with construction deadlines late in the quarter." PRICE ACTION: Shares of SolarCity plunged 32.5% in after-hours trading to $17.79. OTHERS TO WATCH: Sunrun (RUN) is down 7%, Solaredge Technologies (SEDG) is down 8.2%, SunEdison (SUNE) is down 5.9%, Canadian Solar (CSIQ) is down 4.3%, SunPower (SPWR) is down 5.9% following SolarCity's Q4 results. Elon Musk's other publicly traded company, Tesla (TSLA), is also down after-hours by 3.1%.

07:26 EDTSCTYDeutsche reiterates Buy rating, $64 target on SolarCity
Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah reiterates a Buy rating on SolarCity with a $64 price target in a research note addressing recent investor concerns. The seller of renewable energy closed Friday up 8c to $29.57. The shares are likely pricing in a worst case scenario, Shah tells investors. He believes the recent five-year extension of the federal Investment Tax Credit for solar could add $30 of incremental equity value. The analyst also believes concerns around SolarCity's availability of capital to achieve 2016 installation targets maybe overblown. The company has sufficient access to tax equity markets and can sell operating assets to achieve growth objectives, Shah contends.
