Exelon Corp., is giving $1 million toward the cause, joining renewable power manufacturer First Solar Inc. and the American Wind Energy Association in helping underwrite the nonprofit organization. Some companies that back the underlying plan, including Exxon Mobil Corp., are considering donating to the new effort, according to people familiar with the campaign who asked not to be named to discuss fundraising efforts.
Analyst Michael Weinstein upgraded the shares to Neutral from Underperform today, and reiterated a $53 price target, arguing that the recent selloff has more than captured potential downside risk for the stock. Instead of being punished by the tariffs, First Solar "stands to benefit from tariffs on competing products." First Solar is up 0.4% to $52 in recent trading. Robert W. Baird was also optimistic about First Solar last week.

Alternative energy stocks First Solar Inc. ( FSLR) and SunPower Corp. ( SPWR) took a tumble last week on recent policy changes in China that have been viewed as a threat to solar energy demand and prices worldwide.
Solar stocks have taken a hit recently, hurt by regulatory changes in China that some fear may jeopardize demand and prices globally. Kallo named First Solar (FSLR) to the firm's Fresh Pick list on Monday, writing that the selloff was a 'knee-jerk negative reaction' to the news that China is changing its solar subsidy program, and that it doesn't account for the fact that First Solar's revenue visibility or its "substantial competitive advantage" over its peers. First Solar should continue to be at a significant cost advantage, even with best-in-class Chinese manufacturers, which could lead to upside to 2020 estimates, Kallo says.
First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSLR) shares have made a steep, 22-percent slide since the start of the month as negative policy plays out in China. In spite of the foreseen decline in global solar demand, Baird ranked First Solar a “fresh pick” and tagged it “undervalued” relative to peers.
Solar stocks have crashed, and China is the reason. China, facing high costs in adapting to increased solar capacity, halted approval for new solar installations for the rest of 2018 and cut the feed-in tariff, a primary subsidy driving the business, by 50%. The move turned what had been a pretty good year for solar stocks into a horror show.
