Blackstone outlook positive, says JMP Securities

Deutsche views ending of SunEdison, Vivint deal as potential positive
Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah believes the termination of SunEdison's (SUNE) agreement to acquire Vivint Solar (VSLR) is a potential longer-term positive for SunEdison and TerraForm Power (TERP). The failure may also turn out to be a positive for Vivint in the long run, Shah tells investors in a research note. Investor focus will now shift from near-term liquidity and balance sheet stress for both TerraForm and SunEdison to potential legal ramifications from Vivint and Blackstone (BX), the analyst contends. He believes, however, that the legal impact may not be that significant considering the audit committee investigation and resulting lack of financing availability.
