10:26 EDTFSLR, YGE, JKS, TSL, CSIQ, SCTYSolar 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.

Canadian Solar, in response to the United States Department of Commerce's Tuesday decision to impose counter-veiling and anti-dumping tariffs on certain Chinese and Taiwanese photovoltaic modules and cell imports, stated: "We are very disappointed by the DOC's decision, and the damaging impact this has on the American solar industry. This decision threatens the employment of tens and thousands of American workers in the various facets of the solar industry, including manufacturing, design, installation and operations. We plan to utilize our 500 MW manufacturing facility in Ontario, Canada to continue our support for solar energy development in the United States.
