  • Analysts at Morgan Stanley recommend building positions in Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: BABA) while "overly bearish sentiment" is presenting an opportunity. However, even though bullish on the surface, the analysts are more cautious, downgrading their price target to $102.30, down $10.50 from previously.

    Specifically, Morgan Stanley said that the all-important "mobile monetization has further upside." Alibaba has yet to "fully monetize mobile," leading to additional opportunities.

    Morgan Stanley forecasted earnings growth of 40 percent year-over-year in FY16 and 26 percent in FY17. Amid this growth, Morgan Stanley's price target is based on a 36x Non-GAAP P/E valuation for 2015.

    Here is the article.
    A broad political coalition, from liberal environmentalists to tea-party conservatives, has banded together in Florida to press for something that ironically is in short supply in the Sunshine State: solar power.

    The group, which also includes business owners, libertarians and Christian conservatives, launched a campaign in January to place an initiative on the state's 2016 ballot that would eliminate restrictions it says are suppressing the solar industry and protecting utilities from competition.

    Though Florida is the third-most-populous state in the country—after California and Texas—and has plenty of sunshine, it ranks 13th in installed solar capacity, with 229 megawatts, compared with 8,544 megawatts in top-ranked California, according to the Solar Energy Industries Association. Pennsylvania, ranked 12th, has 240 megawatts of capacity.

    "Florida is the best solar market in the eastern United States, and it's clearly underperforming," said Stephen Smith, executive director of the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, which promotes renewable energy and is a member of the coalition, Floridians for Solar Choice.

    Florida is one of only five states that prohibit so-called third-party sales from non-utility companies to install solar panels on residents' or businesses' rooftops and sell them power. Under such arrangements, consumers can avoid the upfront costs of installing solar arrays and lock in potentially cheaper electricity rates, while providers can earn back their investment and a profit over the long haul.

    Currently, Florida consumers can buy electricity only from utilities. The coalition’s initiative, which requires more than 680,000 signatures to qualify for the ballot, would remove that restriction and authorize third-party sales.

    It is the latest standoff between the amalgam of renewable-energy advocates across the country and utilities at a time of rapid growth for the solar industry. In the first three quarters of 2014, 50% more

    Photovoltaic (PV) systems are used to convert sunlight into electricity. They are safe, reliable, incur less operating costs, and are easy to install. The growing concerns about climate change and alternative sources of energy have led to the significant growth of the photovoltaic market. Incentives and funding provided by the government towards the adoption of solar energy to generate electricity have further added to this growth. Photovoltaic markets in Asia, namely China and Japan are expected to contribute largely to the growth of the PV market, globally. This is mainly attributed to the initiatives taken by the government, the key market players being located in the region, and the emergence of building-mounted and ground mounted systems along with, the on-grid segment. On the other hand, the major factor hindering the growth of this market is the demand for high quality and low priced products.

    A successful PV installation provides power for over 20 years with no fuel costs and less maintenance. When compared to diesel generation in particular, PV is a cost-competitive option, especially in the current scenario where electricity and diesel prices are often high. Although PV technology is an appropriate choice for many applications in the market, high capital costs and poor installation and maintenance practices have been the limiting factors in the overall deployment of photovoltaics.

    The global photovoltaics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.30% between 2014 and 2020 and the overall photovoltaics market is estimated to be worth $89.52 billion in 2013 to $345.59 billion by 2020 In terms of application, the utility application accounted for the largest market size in 2013 at 57%. The utility application is expected to hold the major market share and is also likely to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The main reason behind this would be the growing usage of photovoltaics in power plants, military applications, and other utility app

    Canadian Solar, Inc. (CSIQ) is a mid-cap name positioned to rise.
    As illustrated, the shares have recently knifed atop trendline resistance, rising after the company's $265 million acquisition of Sharp Corp's solar business unit.
    Since then, it's maintained support at the breakout point, and its tight one-week range positions the shares to build on the initial spike.
