JA Solar likely to report Q3 loss, says Axiom
Axiom analyst Gordon L Johnson III says his recent checks indicate that China and global prices for modules and cell dropped slightly last week, while spot prices for polysilicon and multi wafers used to make solar modules and cells rose sharply from July 12 to August 9 and have since been stable. As a result, the analyst calculates that companies which bought the raw materials at spot prices have seen their margins on solar cells fall to a record low -12.9%, while module makers who bought the raw materials at spot prices have margins of -3.7%, the lowest level since Axiom began tracking them. Given these trends, Johnson predicts that JA Solar will report a Q3 pretax loss of $10M and warns that the company's results could deteriorate further in Q4. Other publicly traded companies in the space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), SunEdison (SUNEQ), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE).

First Solar upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Vishal Shah upgraded First Solar to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $65 from $50. The provider of photovoltaic solar energy solutions closed yesterday up $1.60 to $48.43. Channel checks indicate that "robust" U.S. demand is driving module prices higher, Shah tells investors in a research note. He believes First Solor is likely to announce additional 1GW of series 4 capacity extension for next year as well as orders for series 6 modules sooner than most investors expect. He sees upside to near-term estimates for the company.

First Solar price target raised to $57 from $52 at Cowen
Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne raised his price target on First Solar to $57 from $52 following Q2 results. The analyst cited the Section 201 ruling that has led to an increase in U.S. prices, which could favor the 300-500MW of remaining Series 4 supply. Long-term earnings power stems from Series 6, which is on track for production in 2018, said Osborne, who reiterated his Outperform rating on First Solar.

Online trend continues as risk in dental consumables, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Jonathan Block said his survey of 106 dental practices showed that online vendors are gaining traction, and this trend is expected to continue. 39% of respondents currently use an online vendor such as Amazon (AMZN) for 21% of their dental consumables and traction among current users is expected to climb higher while additional practices plan to start using an online vendor, noted Block, who views this trend as a long-term headwind for Patterson Companies (PDCO) and Henry Schein (HSIC). In the Dental space, he keeps a Buy rating on Dentsply Sirona (XRAY), a Hold on Henry Schein, and a Sell on Patterson.

The analyst believes concern over Amazon (AMZN) entering the market is overdone and sees potential for improvement in dental consumables based on her firm's consumer surveys. James believes the recent pullback in Henry Schein shares creates an attractive entry point. She calls the company a "high quality, low earnings risk name."

Muse said management believes that investors still severely underestimate the impact of Artificial Intelligence and the size of the potential AI market. Meanwhile, he contends that NVIDIA is creating "THE AI computing industry standard" that will be "nearly impossible to replicate." Led by AI in the Data Center and Automotive markets, he sees Nvidia having a clear path to $10 in EPS over the next 3-5 years and raised his price target on the stock to $250 from $180. Muse keeps an Outperform rating on Nvidia shares.

Jefferies lays out cryptocurrency exposure at Nvidia, AMD
Jefferies analyst Mark Lipacis estimates that in Q2, cryptocurrency revenues accounted for about 3% of quarterly sales for AMD (AMD) and about 10% for Nvidia (NVDA). The risk of a "crypto-driven" inventory correction driving material downside is low in the near term, Lipacis tells investors in a research note. He points out that cryptocurrency prices "increased materially" since bottoming in July. Further, both companies have introduced "cryptospecific GPU SKUs" that have a low risk of competing with core gaming GPUs in secondary markets, Lipacis writes. The analyst does not think cryptocurrencies are Fad. The technology they are based on, called Blockchain, supports secure accounting of distributed ledgers and has applications in financial services beyond cryptocurrencies, the analyst argues.

Demand for Nvidia gaming chips remains strong, says RBC Capital
After conducting checks and reviewing Nvidia's (NVDA) 10-Q, RBC Capital analysts Mitch Steves and Amit Daryanani say that demand for Nvidia's gaming chips "remains healthy" in the midst of strong demand from crypto-currency miners. The analysts add that the company's new deal with Toyota (TM) should boost its selling volumes in 2018-2019, and cause its average selling prices to rise towards the end of that period. They add that sales of the company's Volta chip "are beginning to ramp." The analysts keep an Outperform rating on Nvidia.

Dental survey indicates Q2 upside for Align, Henry Schein, says Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst Robert Jones said checks indicate Q2 Dental trends remained stable and point to consistent low-single-digit growth end-markets. The analyst likes Align Technology (ALGN) saying Q2 case guidance appears beatable and expects high 20% case growth driven by investments, sees Q2 upside for Henry Schein (HSIC) due to share gains from Patterson Companies (PDCO), and said Dentsply Sirona (XRAY) promotions to drive cross-selling have yet to gain traction and 2017 guidance may be aggressive, but expectations are low into the quarter.

Dentsply Sirona estimaters reduced at Northcoast
Northcoast analyst Ed Snyder's checks indicate Patterson Companies (PDCO) sales of high technology dental equipment is weaker than expected caused by industry competition. Snyder said it appears Patterson's CEREC sales growth is down about 40-50%, despite promotional activity. As a result, he reduced Dentsply Sirona's (XRAY) second half internal growth estimate to 1.4% from 2.3% and earnings FY17 earnings estimate to $2.80 from $2.82. Snyder retains a Buy rating on Dentsply and a $76 price target.

UBS analyst Michael Cherny upgraded Patterson Companies (PDCO) to Neutral from Sell, stating that his sell thesis played out more quickly than he anticipated. His call was the risk to out-year estimates as the company worked to transition away from its exclusive Sirona (XRAY) relationship in the U.S. Although he still has concerns over the growth rebound, he feels the risk/reward is more balanced. Cherny has a $40 price target on Patterson Companies shares.

Patterson Companies price target lowered to $41 from $46 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Kevin Ellich lowered his price target for Patterson Companies(PDCO) to $41 from $46 to reflect the soft dental consumable environment and potential market share losses once Henry Schein (HSIC) starts to sell CEREC on September 1. Given the lower valuation and good, stable end markets, the analyst thinks Patterson Companies could be an "interesting target" for a financial buyer as cash flow should start to improve over the next few quarters once the company completes the ERP implementation. He reiterates a Hold rating on Patterson Companies' shares.
