Barclays double downgrades First Solar with Systems business 'in trouble'

Barclays analyst Moses Sutton double downgraded First Solar (FSLR) to Underweight from Overweight with a price target of $49, down from $66. The stock in premarket trading is down 5% to $55.98. After assessing industry data on 5,000 projects, both operational and in the company's pipeline, the analyst believes First Solar's Systems business "is in trouble." This is not a bear call on U.S. Solar, and First Solar's module business is not at risk, Sutton tells investors in a research note. However, its Systems business has lost 80% of its U.S. market share, with NextEra Energy (NEE), EDF and Invenergy gaining share, says the analyst. Sutton expects First Solar's "rapidly declining share" of the U.S. downstream project market to cause a downward re-rating of the shares.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. JetBlue (JBLU) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan. 2. First Solar (FSLR) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at JMP Securities with analyst Joseph Osha saying he believes that the market is not valuing the company's competitive U.S. position appropriately. 3. Tiffany (TIF) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Francesca DiPasquantonio saying reports this weekend about the interest in Tiffany by LVMH (LVMUY) seem to have a "rational backing" and are tied with its history of interest in the brand. 4. Travelers (TRV) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at MKM Partners with analyst Harry Fong saying while the company missed on Q3 earnings, the discussion at a sell-side event indicated that the miss was driven mainly by the worsening tort environment in commercial auto and general liability. 5. Azul (AZUL) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Buckingham with analyst Daniel McKenzie saying he expects Azul's multiple to expand as underlying fundamentals become more appreciated.

JPMorgan still constructive on Alternative Energy, lays out top 2020 picks
JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster remains constructive regarding Alternative Energy fundamentals heading into 2020. He looks for "at-trend" ~$300 billion of investment in 2020 to fund over 200GWs of wind and solar installations, up 10% year-over-year, globally. Adoption is being spurred by falling cost/watt of wind, solar and storage driven by scale and innovation, Coster tells investors in a research note. The analyst's top picks into 2020 are First Solar, SolarEdge (SEDG) and Sunnova Energy (NOVA). He also has Overweight ratings on Bloom Energy (BE), Enphase Energy (ENPH), Hannon Armstrong (HASI), and TPI Composites (TPIC).

First Solar class action settlement of $350M a win, says Roth Capital
First Solar's payment of $350M to settle the class action lawsuit is a large sum, but a fraction of its potential exposure given the company's $20B market-cap decline during the period outlined in the suit, Roth Capital analyst Philip Shen tells investors in a research note. The analyst views today's news as a positive, saying it largely puts the situation behind First Solar. The $350M settlement is a win for First Solar, contends Shen, who keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $75 price target. The analyst adds that the settlement removes the inherent risks and uncertainties involved in taking a case all the way to a 10-person jury trial.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades

Pampa Energia (PAM) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley and to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill. 2. NextEra Energy (NEE) and Xcel Energy (XEL) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays. 3. Seadrill (SDRL) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG with analyst Gregory Lewis saying the company emerged from bankruptcy with too much debt, and its options to increase liquidity are costlier today than they were last year owing to increasing concerns about the pace of the recovery of offshore drilling. 4. Occidental downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Phil Gresh reinstated coverage of Occidental Petroleum following a period of restriction and downgraded the shares to Underweight from Neutral, saying despite the 33% stock price decline since before the Anadarko deal was announced, Occidental's total return potential of 15% is roughly half that of the peer group. 5. SPX Flow (FLOW) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Seaport Global with analyst Walt Liptak saying he believes that the company will be impacted by sector slowing in its Food & Beverage and Industrial segments.

NextEra Energy price target raised to $250 from $230 at Guggenheim
Guggenheim analyst Shahriar Pourreza raised his price target on NextEra Energy shares to $250 from $230 after management meetings that he said have refined his view to be even more constructive on both its regulated and unregulated businesses. He sees top quartile growth outlook at the utilities and a strong project pipeline at the Energy Resources business, said Pourreza. Incremental growth items that were not reflected in his estimates include synergy upside from the merger of Gulf Power and FPL, equalization of the cap structure of the two utilities and incremental future growth from Florida infrastructure programs, said the analyst, who keeps a Buy rating on NextEra shares.
