SunPower (SPWR) Slides 11% on Weak Solar Outlook
SunPower (SPWR) fell around 11% today as the stock was initiated at Underweight by a Wells Fargo analyst. The reason behind the weak outlook is unsupported U.S. solar policies and a slowing housing market.
“SunPower’s business is mostly direct sales, which we view as more sensitive to the economic environment given the large upfront cost of purchasing a solar rooftop system,” the analyst said.
The PRISM Solar Index fell 5.6% for the day, the lowest performer of all the PRISM indexes.
