Cantor Fitzgerald downgraded Satcon Technology (NASDAQ: SATC) from Buy to Hold, price target slashed from $3.00 to $0.50.

Analyst, Dale R. Pfau, said, "On May 17, the U.S. Department of Commerce imposed an immediate 31% duty on Chinese manufactured c-Si cells, modules, and panels. With the European solar market in decline, and most of world's solar panels manufactured in China, we believe this ruling will have a significant negative effect on what has been a growing U.S. market."

Pfau sees significant near-term uncertainty for SATC projects in the U.S. Pfau cuts FY12 EPS loss from -0.13 to -0.21 and revenues from $146.5 mln to $108.3 mln. For FY13, EPS cut fro $0.12 to $0.02.
