Baird analyst Ben Kallo lowered his price target on First Solar (NASDAQ: FSLR) to $48.00 (from $58.00) while maintaining an Outperform rating.

Kallo commented, "Q3 results exceeded our estimates with strong gross margin. Bookings remain a focus of the company and, despite continued market headwinds, FSLR is targeting a book to bill ratio of 1:1 for 2016. Importantly, FSLR will provide 2017 guidance on November 16, and we believe 2017 will be a trough earnings year as market oversupply drives further industry consolidation. That said, we would be buyers on weakness as FSLR remains well positioned for long-term growth."
