SunPower Gets Energy Department Funding SunPower to Receive $24 Million in Energy Department Funding Over 3 Years
NEW YORK (Associated Press) - SunPower Corp., which makes solar cells, panels and systems, said Monday it will receive up to $24.7 million over three years from the Energy Department to help improve the design of integrated solar-electric systems.
The company expects to receive $8.5 million in funding through August 2008.
Upon the completion of certain milestones, SunPower will be eligible for up to an added $16.2 million in funding, subject to availability of funds appropriated by the U.S. Congress.
SunPower said it will perform the work with unnamed technology and institutional partners.
Shares of SunPower lost 8 cents to $74.36 in afternoon trading.
First Solar, SunPower Rise Analyst Says First Solar and SunPower Have Best Technology and Management in Solar
NEW YORK (Associated Press) - Shares of solar power companies First Solar Inc. and SunPower Corp. rose Friday after a Banc of America analyst said those "high quality companies" should stay atop the sector.
Solar stocks have been strong this year, with First Solar shares quadrupling in value and SunPower shares more than doubling. Analyst Eric Brown said high expectations for solar companies are now included in the stock prices, and said investors should favor First Solar and SunPower because they have the best technology, execution and management.
Brown raised his price target on SunPower to $90 per share from $80, and raised his 2008 earnings estimate on First Solar while keeping a $140 price target.
SunPower shares gained $1.24 to $82.05 in morning trading, while First Solar shares advanced $1.79 to $111.82.
NEW YORK (Associated Press) - A Thomas Weisel Partners analyst downgraded shares of solar cell maker SunPower Corp. Monday, saying investors are too optimistic about the passage of a federal energy bill.
SunPower shares have more than doubled in value this year, and closed at $82.82 Friday. The stock reached an all-time high of $86.93 on Sept. 24.
Jeff Osborne lowered his rating on the San Jose, Calif., company to "Market Weight" from "Overweight."
Osborne said investors think a federal energy bill requiring greater solar power use could pass as soon as late October. His view, however, the bill will probably not become law while President Bush is in office because Bush opposes several parts of the proposed legislation.
SunPower and other solar cell makers also do not yet have the infrastructure to handle the growth that would come from the proposed bill, Osborne said.
"Even if a major bill supporting solar through investment tax credits for utilities and the residential market were to be signed into law today, the United States does not currently have widespread availability of installation personnel and distribution set up to accommodate growth outside a few pockets," he said.
Osborne kept a price target of $77 per share on SunPower shares.
Sanjay Shrestha, Managing Director and Senior Analyst of Alternative Energy & Industrials at Lazard Capital Markets has maintained his positive stance on solar companies. Suntech is scheduled to report 3Q07 results on November 15. Suntech Power Holdings, (NYSE:STP) was reiterated as a "Buy" rating, but the price target was raised from $45 to $55 in the news coverage. It also raised estimates following the recent wafer contract announcement that validates longer-term contracts and reflects the competitive advantage of its scale on a global basis. On Suntech, Shrestha adds, "We would not be surprised to see additional silicon contract announcements from various suppliers including credible Chinese players, as we believe Suntech's scale provides the company with excellent procurement leverage.... We believe the company is likely to exceed both top- and bottom-line expectations. However, gross margin could remain flat to slightly down, as Suntech has remained focused on its strategy of building scale rather than maximizing near-term margins." Suntech's new 2009 estimates by Lazard have moved from $1.80 EPS and $2 Billion sales to $2.20 EPS and $2.33 Billion.
On SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR), Shrestha reiterated a BUY rating after its earnings: Reported revenues and operating EPS were $234.4 million and $0.33 ($0.03 was interest income), vs. Lazard's estimates of $210 million and $0.28, respectively. Systems revenues were $157.7 million and component revenues totaled $76.6 million. Gross margins were 20.4%, down from 23% in 2Q07 and below Lazard's expectation of 21.7%. SunPower modestly increased 2008 guidance and also increased its nameplate production capacity. Lazard modestly boosted estimates for 2007 to 2009 and introduced 2010 estimates at $4.20 EPS and $2.45 Billion revenues, and raised the price target on the stock from $80 to $105 in the research note.
Shrestha concludes, "Given inherent volatility in the sector, and recent appreciation, we encourage buying on weakness."
The 200 point down market isn't exactly helping solar investors out today, at least they haven't held the all-time highs put in right after the open: SunPower Corp. (SPWR) shares are down 2% at $94.92, although the intraday high was a new all-time high of $98.17; Suntech Power (NYSE:STP) shares are down 0.5% at $46.46, although $47.00 is the all-time high before an intraday high of $48.00 today.

New Polysilicon Plant in Saudi Arabia to Support SunPower Agreements
SunPower Corporation , a Silicon Valley-based manufacturer of high-efficiency solar cells, solar panels and solar systems, today announced that it has signed two polysilicon agreements to be supplied by a new polysilicon plant located in Saudi Arabia. The two agreements will support in aggregate 2500 megawatts of solar cell production.
SunPower signed a polysilicon purchase agreement with NorSun AS and another with NorSun and its partners who are forming a joint venture company to construct a new polysilicon plant in Saudi Arabia. Each agreement anticipates polysilicon delivery to begin in 2010 and extend through 2019.
"SunPower continues to develop new sources of polysilicon," said PM Pai, chief operations officer of SunPower Corp. "We are building a diverse portfolio of intermediate and long-term silicon supply contracts that support SunPower's cost reduction roadmap. Economies of scale in our supply chain, manufacturing and channel development will drive down installed solar system costs by 50 percent by 2012."
SunPower Corp (SPWR.O: Quote, Profile, Research) on Thursday posted an 18 percent rise in quarterly earnings on rising demand for its solar cells and panels.
Net income for the fourth quarter was $11.2 million, or 6 cents per share, compared with $9.5 million, or 15 cents per share, a year earlier.
Excluding non-cash charges for asset amortization, stock-based compensation, and write-offs for debt issuances, the company posted earnings of 39 cents per share, up from 18 cents per share a year earlier.

SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SunPower Corporation (Nasdaq: SPWR) today announced financial results for the fourth quarter 2007, which ended December 30, 2007. This press release contains both GAAP and non- GAAP financial information. Non-GAAP figures are reconciled to the closest GAAP equivalent figures on the final page of this press release.
Revenue for the 2007 fourth quarter was $224.3 million, down 4.3 percent from prior-quarter revenue of $234.3 million and up 201.1 percent from year- ago fourth-quarter revenue of $74.5 million. The Components segment accounted for $100.4 million of fourth-quarter revenue, a 31.1 percent increase from prior-quarter revenue of $76.6 million. The Systems segment accounted for $123.9 million of fourth-quarter revenue, a 21.4 percent decrease from prior- quarter revenue of $157.7 million.
Third-quarter 2007 revenue was significantly influenced by large scheduled project installations, particularly the Nellis Air Force Base project.
2007 fourth-quarter revenue growth, compared to the fourth quarter of 2006, was primarily driven by continued strong demand for SunPower products and systems across market segments and channels. For reporting purposes, the Systems segment generally represents products and services sold directly to the system owner, while the Components segment represents primarily products sold to installers and resellers. Additionally, both SunPower and third-party solar panels sold through the Systems segment channels are recorded as Systems segment revenue.
