Mizuho Securities analyst James von Riesemann reiterated a Neutral rating and lowered his price target on First Solar (NASDAQ: FSLR) to $46 saying the company is facing challenging industry headwinds over the balance of 2016 and into next year.
These challenges are brought about by the roll-off of high-margined legacy projects; excess supply build ahead of ITC tax credits (since extended); and, perhaps presciently, FSLRs switch-over in technologies to the higher-density Series 5 module.
"As such, investors are struggling with how to value FSLR, and so are we, given the limited transparency into 2017," von Riesemann said. "We lower our price target significantly and maintain our cautious, but Neutral, stance."
Shares of First Solar closed at $41.66 yesterday.
