First Solar downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Macquarie

Macquarie analyst Gurpreet Gujral downgraded First Solar to Neutral citing a lack of catalysts after the company canceled the Series 5 product that was originally scheduled to launch in 2017. Pulling forward the launch of its Series 6 product to mid-2018 from 2019 is positive for investors in the long term, but First Solar shares lack a catalyst over the nearer term, Gujral tells investors in a research note. The analyst cut his price target for the shares to $32.75 from $57.33. First Solar closed yesterday up 28c to $29.66.

First Solar downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS
UBS analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith downgraded First Solar to Sell saying the just issued 2017 guidance "is not the trough in expectations." The company's outlook does not "necessarily improve substantially" in 2018 and 2019 could be another peak year as ITC steps down, Dumoulin-Smith tells investors in a research note. The analyst notes that First Solar's structural cash flow "remains quite limited." He cut his price target for the shares to $25 from $45.

First Solar price target lowered to $27 from $33 at Roth Capital
Roth Capital analyst Philip Shen lowered his price target for First Solar to $27 from $33 given the uncertainty around earnings power for an extended period of time. The analyst notes that 2017 and the first half of 2018 will represent a transition period with much lower than expected earnings power as the company takes Series 4 capacity offline. He reiterates a Neutral rating on the shares.

Torchmark (TMK) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Seth Weiss citing relative valuation. 5. First Solar (FSLR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith saying the recently issued 2017 guidance "is not the trough in expectations."
