SunPower downgraded to Neutral at Baird
As reported previously, Baird analyst Ben Kallo downgraded SunPower to Neutral from Outperform as he believes the stock is too difficult to own in the current market. The analyst said he still likes the management team and execution, but he believes it will be challenging for the company's premier product to command higher average selling prices if an oversupply environment were to materialize. Kallo lowered his price target to $7 from $10 on SunPower shares.

Enphase, SolarEdge inverters won't be subject to 301 tariffs, says Roth Capital
After the U.S. Trade Representative released two lists of products that will be subject to 25% tariffs under the Section 301 investigation, Roth Capital analyst Philip Shen noted that the lists did not include solar inverters, cells, or modules. He does not believe imported inverters from Enphase Energy (ENPH), SolarEdge (SEDG) and others will be subject to 301 tariffs, though he notes that solar cells and modules will continue to be impacted by the Section 201 and AD/CVD tariffs. Other publicly traded companies in the solar space include Canadian Solar (CSIQ), First Solar (FSLR), JA Solar (JASO), SunPower (SPWR), Trina Solar (TSL) and Yingli Green Energy (YGE).

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).

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).
