At one point being compared to First Solar (NASDAQ: FSLR) would have been a good thing for a company to brag about... but not anymore.

Shares of Cree (NASDAQ: CREE) are getting punched in the gut Wednesday after Wunderlich Securities Theodore O'Neill said 'Cree is the First Solar of the LED space.'

O'Neill sees a lot of similarities between the two, noting competitive pricing forced First Solar to vertically integrate up the food chain, which is what Cree did last year. Also, CFOs at both companies left after the vertical integration shift.

O'Neill has a Sell and $20 price target on Cree.
