Axiom upgrades solar sector sector to Overweight from Underweight
As previously reported, Axiom analyst Gordon L. Johnson II upgraded several stocks in the solar sector, including raising his ratings on Yingli Green Energy (YGE) to Buy from Sell, Trina Solar (TSL) to Buy from Sell, JA Solar (JASO) to Buy from Sell and SolarCity (SCTY) to Hold from Sell. The firm has also upgraded its solar sector rating to Market Overweight from Market Underweight, as they believe China's proposed Jul. 1, 2017 tariff cut will usher in about 25GW of 1H17 Chinese "pull-in" demand and that a possible election win by Hillary Clinton would serve as sentiment tailwind pushing clean energy funds to "refocus" on solar stocks.

Review process of SolarCity acquisition may be delayed, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Colin Rusch believes the SEC review process of Tesla's (TSLA) acquisition of SolarCity (SCTY) could be delayed due to recent activity, especially new litigation. Further, the analyst believes extension to the timeline is likely to work against the deal given the risk of ongoing "collaboration to trigger gun-jumping rules." Rusch reiterates a Perform rating on Tesla's shares.

Brean says surveillance a bigger, faster growing drive opportunity than realized
After meeting with executives from Seagate (STX) to discuss the video surveillance market, Brean Capital analyst Ananda Baruah acknowledged that he know believes the market is developing as potentially a much stronger revenue and margin opportunity for the company and peer Western Digital (WDC) than he'd realized. Video surveillance may account for at least 15%-20% of Seagate capacity shipped in 4-5 years and gross margin in the segment is currently about 200bp stronger than corporate average, said Baruah. The analyst, who estimates Seagate could ultimately generate $4.00-$6.00 in annual normalized EPS, keeps a Buy rating and $42 price target on the stock.
