What are analysts saying about SunPower Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about SunPower Corporation stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "SunPower is gradually shifting its revenue base from solar panel sales to the development of solar projects, power plants and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) systems. Meanwhile, it remains committed to provide high-performance solar power products to its customers. In the overseas, the company has plans to build six projects in many regions in Mexico with expected delivery dates of 2018 and 2019, and gross margin above 20%. However, rising cost is a major headwind for SunPower, given the constant need to come up with new and innovative technology. The company's share price underperformed the broader industry in the last year." (10/3/2017)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "We are adjusting our financial outlook and revising our price target to $8 per share. The downturn in the industry and limited visibility into the future leads to our reductions. SPWR's CEO believes the industry will recover in 2H17, but much of that may be in the hands of Congress as it contemplates tax reform (including renewables incentives)." (1/30/2017)
