Here's What YieldCo Investors Are Watching This Week

In a new report, Avondale Partners analyst Michael Morosi took a look at some of the market-moving headlines among YieldCos this week. According to Morosi, earnings will likely continue to be the market’s top concern.

“YieldCo’s have delivered generally in-line reports with constructive outlooks, reflecting the positive impact from the ITC/PTC extension, though the key uncertainty remains regarding access to equity markets,” he explained.

Spotlight On Solar

Morosi sees Nextera Energy Partners LP (NYSE: NEP)’s $270 million-plus equity raise as a positive sign for the industry.

NextEra Energy Partners plans to use the funding toward recently announced Seiling I & II Wind Energy Centers and the acquisition of 299MW of wind projects from NextEra Energy Resources.

In other solar news, the city of Palo Alto, California has announced a 25-year deal to purchase solar power from the Wilsona Solar project at a price of $36.76/MWh.

Sunedison Inc (NYSE: SUNE) also received some good news recently when a Delaware court denied Appaloosa Management’s attempt to block SunEdison’s acquisition of Vivint Solar Inc (NYSE: VSLR).

A Few Names At Outperform

Avondale has Outperform ratings on the following YieldCos:

  • NextEra Energy Partners

StreetSweeper Negative On Celator, Said Good Story Won't Last

Shares of Celator Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ: CPXX) tumbled more than 3 percent on Monday after TheStreetSweeper’s Sonya Colberg published a scathing report on the company.

According to Colberg, the clinical-stage bio-pharmaceutical company has “finished cherry-picking and left the ladder against the tree.” Meanwhile, new stock promoters have “climbed up and begun tossing investors the pits.”

Colberg continued that Celator is now focusing on a drug that targets a rare cancer called acute myeloid leukemia. In fact, the company has already failed at meeting a primary key endpoint in a phase II trial and that survival rates “were not statistically significant.” However, researchers began to examine a special subgroup of patients with secondary acute myeloid leukemia which produced “better looking results” – hence the “cherry-picking” which helped the company proceed to a phase III trial.

Other Concerns

Colberg further suggested that Celator’s press releases might be “more promotional than informational.” In addition, four positive articles about Celator can be retrieved through Yahoo! Finance’s library and were all written by the same author. Colberg does state it is unclear if these articles are indeed paid promotions, but “they probably are,” as the publication charges between $10,000 and $50,000 for investor relations and related services.

Finally, Colberg pointed out that Celator’s finances are “only getting worse and worse, faster and faster.” At the same time, the company’s top four executives are “hauling in” more than $2 million in compensation.

Bottom line, there is an “excellent chance” that the expected results from a phase III trial in March will “not be positive.”

Alibaba, Tencent Among JPMorgan's Top Chinese Internet Picks

JPMorgan said its top picks in Chinese Internet sector are Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: wBABA), Tencent Holdings Ltd (OTC: TCTZF) (OTC: TCEHY), JD.Com Inc(ADR) (NASDAQ: JD), Ctrip.com International, Ltd. (ADR) (NASDAQ: CTRP) and Weibo Corp (ADR) (NASDAQ: WB).

Analyst Vivian Hao, who has an Overweight rating on all the above stocks, has a constructive view on China’s Internet sector, after balancing pessimism on China macro against long-term secular drivers and sector-specific catalysts.

“Sector has fallen 21 percent from 4Q15 peak vs NASDAQ/MSCI EM’s 10 percent/8 percent, providing opportunities for segment leaders,” Hao said in a note to clients.

Healthy cash flows and earnings growth should be sustained in e-commerce, digital ads, online travel and online/mobile games. In addition, low-hanging fruit from PC-to-mobile traffic migration largely reaped, improving unit economics will drive next leg of growth.

Looking Closer At Specific Names

On Alibaba, Hao said the stock is oversold amid pessimism on gross merchandise value slowdown. She expects the market to eventually recognize and give credit to the company’s monetization improvement, which is evidenced in strong revenue growth and supporting its long-term EBITDA margins. Hao has a price target of $90 on Alibaba stock.

“After the revamp throughout 2015, Alibaba’s platforms are healthier and better value-add to merchants on branding and user engagement. In addition, we believe Alibaba is well positioned in a handful of new initiatives, such as cloud and payment,” Hao noted.

Meanwhile, the analyst said that JD.com is a major beneficiary of structural of C2C (consumer to consumer) to B2C (business to consumer) evolution with unique advantages on in-house logistics and product quality. JD’ secular growth is likely to withstand…

Every Monday, Bespoke publishes the historical median returns of the S&P 500, sectors of the economy and individual stocks for the upcoming couple of weeks based on the returns seen over the past ten years. Of course, the firm highlights, basing investment solely on seasonal trends is not a great idea, for trends do not imply exact repetition. However, knowing historical tendencies always comes in handy when picking out stocks, sectors or ETFs to invest in.

In an article issued Monday, Bespoke shared a list of the fifteen S&P 500 stocks that have posted the highest historical median returns during the entire month of March over the last ten years.

Related Link: Macro Update: Small Business Sentiment Falls, Homeowners Remain Overly Optimistic

GameStop Corp. (NYSE: GME) lead the list, having delivered a median March return of 12.25 percent. It should also be noted that the company’s March returns were positive in 9 of the past 10 years; only in 2012 did it post a loss of 4.1 percent.

Analysts at Bespoke noted, however, that the most consistent top performing stock in the S&P 500 was Signet Jewelers Ltd. (NYSE: SIG), which has posted positive returns in each one of the last ten years, averaging a gain of 8.64 percent. The company reported preliminary earnings for the fourth quarter on Monday morning, beating estimates, and leading the stock to sore about 10 percent, “getting a headstart on their typically strong March, so it will be interesting to see if the stock can build on those gains in the month ahead,” the analysts added.

Finally, there’s Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE: CMG), which occupies the ninth spot in this list. “The stock has already bounced nicely off its January E.coli lows, but with a median gain of 7.4 percent, the month of March has…

Deutsche Bank: We’re Still Bullish On Solar

Courtesy of Benzinga.

Deutsche Bank said it remains bullish on solar fundamentals in 2016 despite a relatively weak oil pricing outlook. Analyst Vishal Shah continues to see the outperformance of stocks such as First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSLR) into the upcoming April Analyst Day and expects additional positive catalysts for stocks such as Sunedison Inc (NYSE: SUNE) and SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ: SCTY) over the next few months.

Despite the generally robust fundamentals, solar stocks have had mixed performance during the fourth quarter earnings season, primarily due to company specific execution and financing concerns.

Companies with relatively robust balance sheet, simpler investment theses and valuation frameworks have performed better compared to companies with more complex theses and valuation framework.

“Oil represents less than 5% of global electricity generation and spending on T&D is increasing to become a larger percentage of overall utility capex which would continue to drive an increase in electric power rates,” Shah said in a note to clients.

“Our analysis suggests that retail electricity prices in the US have increased at 2-3% nominal rate over the long term and this trend is likely to continue in the near term, providing support to residential PPA rates offered by solar leasing companies,” he added.

Shah noted that SunPower Corporation (NASDAQ: SPWR) shares offer a very attractive risk-reward profile especially since he expects the company to continue to generate positive EBITDA growth in 2017 from a combination of ramp of utility scale project pipeline, share gains in the US utility solar market.

Gigafactory Clues Buried In Tesla's Latest SEC Filing (Seeking Alpha)

Electric car maker Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) is creating a new industry with its “Gigafactory,” which is effectively being built with zero dollars, according to Trip Chowdhry of Global Equities Research.

Chowdhry said Tesla’s Gigafactory (a $5 billion investment) has the potential to change multiple­ sub-­industries, and he said Lithium could be available at the cost of salt in the “not too distant future.” This could jumpstart a completely new industry, which would supplant the whole of the existing utility industry.

Going a step forward, Chowdhry said, “TSLA GigaFactory, by itself, may be valued at $600 billion.­ Imagine a world with $0.99 a box of Lithium, similar to Sodium, the common salt we get at Safeway.”

Related Link: Analysts Met With Tesla’s New CFO: Here’s What Happened

The analyst said current global automakers are burning more than $8 billion per year, in advertising, while Tesla is spending $0 on advertising, the money saved on advertisement is being invested in creating a completely new industry with Gigafactory “battery production at scale.”

“In ­spite of this huge auto industry spend of more than $8 billion in advertisements per year, the brand­ loyalty is non-­existent. TSLA spends zero dollars in advertising, and in­ spite of this, has the most aspirational possession value, not only in USA, Canada and Europe, but even in countries like Thailand, Malaysia, South Africa and India, where TSLA has not even sold a single car,” Chowdhry said in a note to clients.

Tesla’s biggest sales persons are its own customers. The company’s referral program has been a “super hit.” In 2016, a new referral program was put in ­place, which gives the new buyer $1,000 off the invoice, the current owner gets $1,200 credit toward the power installation, chance to win Powerwall (Tesla Energy), Model X P85DL, trip to SpaceX, invite to inauguration of Gigafactory, etc.

Bernstein Upgrades Airbus To Outperform, Joins Boeing As Bull Plays In Portfolio

Bernstein Upgrades Airbus To Outperform, Joins Boeing As Bull Plays In Portfolio

On Monday, AB Bernstein issued a company note on Airbus Group SE (EPA: AIR) as analysts believe that aircraft demand will remain strong. Bernstein upgraded Airbus from Market-Perform to Outperform with a 78 euro price target.

Douglas Harned and Christian Laughlin, analysts at Bernstein, wrote, “We view the outlook for commercial aircraft demand as sound, at a time when commercial aerospace stocks are depressed due to macroeconomic fears. Although we have long been positive on the demand outlook for Airbus, we have been concerned about risks associated with A350 development and production increases – concerns that have now dissipated.”

With this upgrade, Airbus joins Boeing Co (NYSE: BA) as a bull play in a Bernstein air-transportation-based portfolio.

Boeing is currently rated at Outperform with a price target of $180.

Related Link: United Technologies CEO: Honeywell Combo Would Be Blocked, Destructive To Shareholder Value

Justification

Analysts at Bernstein gave two key reasons why they see strength in Airbus.

1. Demand For Planes
Analysts at Bernstein revised their outlook for the A350 program, citing corporate demand along with strong margins and smooth production. Bernstein expects deliveries to triple in 2016 to 52 units.

2. Valuation
Bernstein wrote that Airbus is currently discounted in regards to key competitors and believes that the company’s multiple could grow as their airplane models continue to be delivered and earnings are announced. While global economic concerns are still present, Bernstein believes that Airbus can still outperform their competition.

At the time of this publication, Airbus was seen trading at $59.78, up 3.95 percent.

Electric car maker Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA) continues to poach key executives of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), and the latest in the list is said to be chip architect Peter Bannon, according to a report on 9to5Mac.

Last week, Electrek reported that Apple’s alloy expert Charles Kuehmann has joined Tesla.

Related Link: Analysts Met With Tesla’s New CFO: Here’s What Happened

Late January, Tesla hired chip architect Jim Keller as new “Vice-President of Autopilot Hardware Engineering.”

The report said before Keller left Apple for AMD in 2012, he and Bannon were leading Apple’s processor development since the Cupertino-based company bought their chip making firm PA Semi in 2008. Bannon has served Apple for more than seven years. According to Bannon’s LinkedIn profile, he joined Apple in February 2016.

Bannon, who holds several patents when it comes to chip-making, will be a huge asset for Tesla, as he is likely to play a major role in developing advanced chips and sensors for future Tesla vehicles. He would not be alone at Tesla, where he would work with his former colleague Keller and may jointly make autopilot chips.

What Does It All Mean?

The appointment of Bannon, who is latest in the series of Tesla hires from Apple, indicates that Tesla is mooting its own in-house chip development. Moreover, the departure of these key executives dealt a blow to Apple, which is also said to be working on an electric car.

Ironically, Tesla CEO Elon Musk himself has said it is an “open secret” that Apple is making a rival electric car. But, he said he is not threatened by Apple’s efforts.

But on top of these political headlines, on Saturday afternoon, the news broke that Italian-American carmaker Fiat Chrysler had approached France's Renault with a merger proposal that would leave the shareholders of each carmaker with half of the combined company, in a tie-up that would create the world's third-largest au...

Despacito - How to Make Money the Old-Fashioned Way - SLOWLY!

Are you ready to retire?  

For most people, the purpose of investing is to build up enough wealth to allow you to retire.  In general, that's usually enough money to reliably generate a year's worth of your average income, each year into your retirement so that that, plus you Social Security, should be enough to pay your bills without having to draw down on your principle.

Unfortunately, as the last decade has shown us, we can't count on bonds to pay us more than 3% and the average return from the stock market over the past 20 years has been erratic - to say the least - with 4 negative years (2000, 2001, 2002 and 2008) and 14 positives, though mostly in the 10% range on the positives.  A string of losses like we had from 2000-02 could easily wipe out a decades worth of gains.
