Credit Suisse upgrades First Solar to Neutral amid 'overblown' Section 301 fears
As previously reported, Credit Suisse analyst Michael Weinstein upgraded First Solar (FSLR) to Neutral from Underperform, noting that solar manufacturers and developers' stocks have recently slumped on concerns about the fresh round of "Section 301" tariffs on Chinese imports. However, he thinks the negative reaction is "overblown" for the space, and "even more overblown" for First Solar, which Weinstein notes doesn't have any Chinese factories and actually stands to benefit from tariffs on competing products. He maintains a $53 price target on First Solar shares. Other publicly traded companies in the solar space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE).

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Verizon (VZ) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Matthew Niknam saying the company's fundamentals are inflecting but the shares have remained range-bound. 2. Intuit (INTU) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Brad Reback saying he believes its two primary business divisions each have improving competitive dynamics and multiple secular growth drivers. 3. First Solar (FSLR) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse with analyst Michael Weinstein saying the recent pull back captures potential downside risk from U.S. tariff withdrawal. 4. Helmerich & Payne (HP) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies with analyst Brad Handler saying the stock's 13% pullback over the past month is unwarranted. 5. Accenture (ACN) upgraded to Positive from Neutral at Susquehanna with analyst James Friedman saying he is incrementally more bullish that an ERP modernization cycle is starting. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

First Solar upgraded to Buy on 'most bullish possible' IRS guide at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Julien Dumoulin-Smith upgraded First Solar (FSLR) to Buy from Neutral, stating that the latest IRS tax guidance allowing for up to 4-year ITC extension on solar projects with commence construction qualification was " the most bullish interpretation IRS could have released." The IRS guidance is likely worth at least $50B to his prior cumulative capex expectations for the sector through 2023, Dumoulin-Smith tells investors. While he has less confidence on a module price recovery, the analyst sees prospects for more U.S. bound projects, he added. He maintains a $63 price target on First Solar shares. Other publicly traded companies in the space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), JA Solar (JASO), SunEdison (SUNEQ), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE).
